Since I have so much Cauliflower Rice on hand I was looking for recipes…and low and behold a frind comes by and brings me 2 mango’s!! Why?? I haven’t a clue. So I found this easy recipe at tastefulventure and had everything g on hand, so I made it !! It was quite good !! The sweetness of the mangos and then the squeeze of a full lime, for the dressing !! And it is sooo easy…well except for cutting the mango !! That is  for in itself!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 head of cauliflower chopped and put in food processor to rice consistency and THEN PUT IN MICROWAVE for about 4 mins and stir, and put in fridge to cool.
  • 4-5 green onions chopped on an angle to look pretty
  • a bunch of cilantro chopped (about 1/2 c or more depending on how much you like cilantro !!
  • 1 TBS minced garlic
  • kosher salt to taste..don’t be shy
  • 1 large lime, juiced..(that means, squeezed)
  • 1can Block beans drained & rinsed
  • 1/4 c of red, OR orange OR whatever color pepper you have…I even used jalapeño…( or mix, it’s up to you !!)
  • 1 mango peeled, cored and chopped !! And that, my friends requires that maybe you should google how to do it because it is a slippery son of a gun !!
  • 12 grape tomatoes cut in half.

One head yeilded me 4 cups!! I LOVE rice but on Paleo, I substitute this and it is so dang good !!!!

Who would ever think that Brussel Sprouts would be used for breakfast???? Well I am here to tell you that this recipe from Kevin of Closet Cooking, is a perfect breakfast for someone on the Paleo Diet.  I took his recipe and added more vegetables to it and with an egg to top it off!! So go ahead all you “naysayers” and turn your nose up to it but you will miss out on something that yes, is different, but none the less it is delicious!  So gather all your ingredients, bake the bacon in the oven and while that is cooking chop up all your ingredients and be ready to go!!!! And don’t throw away that Bacon grease because I use it.  If you don’t want to use the Bacon Grease that is fine…olive oil works just as well…(doesn’t taste as good…)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 sweet potato peeled and diced
  • 6-8 brussel sprouts thinly sliced
  • 1/4 med onion, chopped
  • 1 TBS minced garlic
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 8 grape tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 6 pieces of bacon cooked and chopped coarsely
  • 3-4 mushrooms cleaned and sliced
  • S & P to taste
  • 1-2 eggs (your choice of whether to use or not)
Sweet Potatoes with Brussel Sprouts, other veggies and BACON make up this Paleo Breakfast!

Then off comes the lid and look at the beautiful “hash” you have made and you can’t wait to sit down and eat it!!! I like to add hot sauce to mine, but that is totally up to your taste buds! This is PLENTY for 2 people and of course you can put another egg in there!

You can put any other vegetables that you may have on hand…it’s your palate to do whatever you want!  Thank you again, Kevin of Closet Cooking for your inspiration!!!! And to all you “naysayers”, JUST TRY IT!!
