Recipe of the Week!

by GCF on 12/18/14

Roasted Cranberry Chicken Salad

Maybe we're a little late on the cranberries since Thanksgiving has come and gone. Then again maybe we're not because I bet some of you will enjoy some cranberries for Christmas dinner and/or Chanukah!

This recipe might take you more than 20 minutes to prepare but it is well worth it. 

What You Shall Need:

For The Roasted Cranberries:
2 cups of rinsed, fresh cranberries
2 tsp of maple syrup
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Pinch of salt

For The Chicken Salad:
Fat of choice
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1 large onion, finely minced
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 3 lbs.
Roasted Cranberries ( See recipe below!)
1-2 batches paleo mayo (tons of different recipes you can find on Dr. Google)
1 large apple, diced
2 small stalks of celery , diced
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp dried basil
2 tsp each of cumin and dried oregano
Salt and Pepper

How To Roast The Cranberries:
1. Preheat oven 350F
2. Place all of your ingredients into a small mixing bowl.
3. Mix it all up well and place it onto a small aluminum foil or parchment paper lined baking sheet
4. Roast 10-12 minutes, or until your cranberries have started to burst and cook through.
5. Let them cool and add to the salad.

What You Shall Do:
1. As them cranberries are roasting start to do everything else! When they're done simply set them off to the side.
2. In a large skillet, add some coconut oil or fat of your choice and add in garlic and onion. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the cut chicken to the skillet and sprinkle some salt and pepper. 
4.Dice apple and celery while chicken is cooking
5. When chicken is done cooking allow it to cool of a few minutes then add it to a large bowl with mayo, seasonings, diced vegetables and roasted cranberries.
6. Mix very well and serve! The above amount will serve about 3-4 people.

Recipe of the Week!

by GCF on 12/04/14

Curried Cauliflower Soup

Do I love cauliflower? Nowadays yes, but I used to despise this mighty cruciferous vegetable. Of course that was back in the day when my diet consisted of pizza, Fruity Pebbles, Cherry Coke and the like. 

Fast forward a decade, a few degrees later and some general knowledge about nutrition and the human body. Now I have a go at this gem on the regular. Whether it is simply steamed cauliflower or dijon roasted hazelnut cauliflower, this nutrient-packed vegetable has got it going on. At least for me. 

And hopefully you, too!

Cauliflower is cheap, versatile and filling. It is packed full of antioxidants including vitamin C and many others not commonly found in vegetables including caffeic acid, cinnamic acid, ferulic acid and quercetin. 

Cauliflower is a tremendous source of vitamin K which is a hallmark anti-inflammatory nutrient as it is a direct regulator of our inflammatory response. 

Make it part of your diet today!

What You Shall Need:

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets. Use the stems
1/2 tsp coriander
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
1/4 cup roasted cashews
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste

What You Shall Do:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread out the onion and cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. 
2. Place the cauliflower and onions in a large pot and add the chicken stock. Stir in the coriander, turmeric, cumin, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and let boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. 
3. Using a hand held mixer/blender, puree ingredients in the pot until smooth. Or, alternatively transfer to a blender. Stir in the coconut milk and warm the soup to serve. Taste to adjust seasonings as necessary. Served with roasted cashews and top with fresh parsley. 

This would pair well with any meat dish. Seafood and lamb in particular. Enjoy!
