My discovery today was – Cauli Rice! AMAZING!

I just had to share this exciting new food product, CAULI RICE, yes of course it is Cauliflower rice, Gluten Free, low in calories, low in fat but full of flavour! They offer 4 different flavours and in a handy microwave pouch.

At only roughly 50 calories per 100g, it’s a great way to eat healthier and still enjoy the texture of rice and flavours. Made purely from Cauliflower grains.

My Med Veg Mash Up!

20160114_184820

Had to use up some vegetables in my fridge up, if you’re like me, I hate waste, and I buy loads thinking I’m going to be good this week and have veg every day….some days that doesn’t work out so I’m left with a lot. I decided to do something I’ve never tried before and simply just mash it all up. Wanted to add some flavour and decided a Mediterranean flavour should be o.k.

Makes 1 Pepper

1 x Orange Pepper – Roasted and cut in half

2 x Carrots

Handful Broccoli (approx 50g)

30g Green Beans – chopped

2 tbsp Tomato Passata (I had some left in my fridge thought I’d chuck in it to help bind)

1 tsp basil

1tsp oregano

1 tsp spiced crushed red pepper (my fav from Costco), this gives a lovely kick!

  1.  Pre-heat oven to 220 deg. Cut pepper in half and spray with oil, place in a foil lined baking tin and bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  2. Cook vegetables either boil or steam, I always steam as it’s healthier and much more tastier.
  3. Once vegetables are cooked, place in a food processor or blender with the passata and herbs n spices until mix through.
  4. Once peppers are ready remove from oven and fill with the veg mix. Serve. Yummy!

Of course you can tailor to your own tastes with any vegetable and any type of spice and herbs, the list is endless.

I do like it when you get a success in the kitchen! Happy Days!

 

So low in calories and fat too.

Looking in Fridge I had to use the cabbage up but wondered how I could jazz it up! Looked in my spice rack and this is what I put together. Tasty absolutely sensational. This could also work with Cod and Chicken. It is also low in calories and fat….Result!

Serves 1

1/2 Savoy Cabbage – sliced
1 portion Salmon Fillet approx (150g)
1 clove Garlic – crushed
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 white onion – sliced
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp Gram Masala
30g Lentil Sprouts (optional) I had these left over so I just put them in.

  1. Mix the Gram Masala and Curry Powder together and rub into Salmon
  2. Heat up a griddle pan with spray oil and place Salmon on to cook through (approx 10 mins)
  3. Meanwhile, heat a wok to a high heat and cook the garlic and cumin with onion until soft (approx 2 mins)
  4. Add to the wok the cabbage and coconut, stir through for about 5 mins. If adding the Lentil Sprouts put in 1 min before ready and mix just to heat through.
  5. Plate the cabbage mix and place the salmon on top. Yum!
