Paleo “Potato” (cauliflower) Pancakes

Ever wonder what to do with leftover cauliflower mash?  Well, make “potato” pancakes, of course!!  These are very flavorful and easy.  I ate mine with some left over salmon and salsa on top!  But you could add almost any vegetable to these before frying them!

Ingredients:

  • ~1 cup leftover cauliflower mash
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • salt & pepper

Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Mix cauliflower mash with onions (or any other veggies), egg,  and salt/pepper to taste. Drop spoonfuls in skillet.  Let patties cook until brown on bottom (4-5 min), then flip and allow the other side to brown as well.  And that’s all! Enjoy!

Paleo Taco Meat

I usually make a large batch of taco meat when I make it because it’s so good leftover!  We usually serve this with large romaine lettuce leaves (instead of shells), homemade salsa, and any other taco toppings you like!

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs grass-fed ground beef
  • coconut oil
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2-3 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup water

Brown meat in a little oil with the onions and seasonings.  Add tomato and water and simmer until juices are reduced.  Easy Peasy!! Enjoy!

Kelp Noodle Soup

For lunch today, I decided to try something new…. Kelp noodles! And we LOVED them!!  I just made up this recipe and didn’t really measure anything… so the amounts are estimated.  I didn’t put any meat in this time, but, I think shrimp, chicken, or beef would of been fabulous!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of kelp noodles
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup dried shitaki mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1/2-1 inch ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2-3 sheets of dried seaweed, torn into smaller pieces
  • 1-2 Tbsp sesame oil

Put all ingredients into soup pan except noodles.  Bring to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer.  In the meantime, soak/rinse noodles and cut into smaller pieces.  Cook until mushrooms/onions are soft (maybe ~10 min).  Add noodles, stir well, and serve!

I can’t wait to use the noodles in more recipes… they are amazing!!

Chorizo Zucchini Frittata

This is a really good breakfast!  We don’t normally eat cheese, but we splurged today!  After making it we decided that it would be just as good without the cheese and next time I will leave the cheese off for sure!

Just cook chorizo in iron skillet on stove, I used ~half the package.  Mix in 1-2 zucchini’s (shredded) and dice a poblano pepper(or any pepper would work!) and cook with chorizo until veggies are soft.  Then pour scrambled eggs (I used ~6 eggs) on top of chorizo/zucchini mix and cook on low heat until starting to get solid.  Place in oven at 350, until eggs are firm.  Cheese on top is optional!   Great breakfast!!
