Quick and Easy Matcha Cocoa Bars

matcha-cocoa-bars.jpg

Ingredients:
250g Medjool dates, pitted
50g slivered almonds
25g macadamias
35g walnuts
10g chia seeds
25g desiccated coconut
1/3 cup raw cocoa powder
2 tbsp cooking-grade matcha powder, plus extra for dusting
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or 1 vanilla bean)

Directions:

  1. In a medium-sized frying pan, toast the nuts and desiccated coconut until light brown. Set aside and let cool completely.
  2. In a food processor, add the Medjool dates, toasted nuts, and desiccated coconut and pulse until fine and crumbly. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until the ingredients come together into a ball.
  3. Pour the mixture onto a baking mat and press the dough using your hands into a rectangle, about one inch thick.
  4. Place into the fridge to let it set for two hours.
  5. Cut up into the shape you desire. Note: If you’re rolling into balls, roll them up after pouring the mixture onto the baking mat, before placing them into the fridge.
  6. Lightly dust with more matcha powder, or cocoa powder if you prefer.
  7. To store, place a piece of parchment paper in between the bars or layers of balls to avoid sticking. Keep them in an airtight container in the fridge.
  8. Enjoy with a cup of tea!

Cauliflower Tater Tots

cauliflower-tater-tots-paleo.jpg
Ingredients

  • Tater Tots
  • 1/2 head large cauliflower
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil/butter/ghee
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tsp. coconut flour (stir the flour with a fork, then measure) (get coconut flour here)
  • 3/4 tsp. unrefined salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Herbes de Provence, crushed (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons (about) coconut oil/ghee/lard for cooking the tots
  • Lime Avocado Sauce, for dipping
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt, to taste
  • Recommended tools
  • Mini ice cream scoop, find it here or at a cooking store

Instructions

  1. Piece the cauliflower into florets, then place the florets into a food processor. Pulse for about 10 seconds, until it resembles fine grains of rice.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the 1 Tbs. of oil over medium heat. Add the crumbled cauliflower, stir to coat, then cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove the cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until softened. Turn off the heat and let cool until no longer hot.
  3. Optionally, transfer the cauliflower to a bowl, but I prefer to save the time and I mix up the batter right in the skillet. Add the coconut flour, eggs, salt, and optional Herbes de Provence to the cauliflower mixture and stir until well combined.
  4. Heat another skillet over medium heat and add a spoonful of cooking fat to coat the bottom.
  5. To make the tater tots, I highly recommend using a mini ice cream scoop, which is also called a “cookie dough scoop” and you can find it here. This is an easy way to get uniformly-sized, ideal-height tater tots. Using the scoop or just a spoon, drop the batter onto the hot skillet. If using a spoon, use 1/2 Tbs. of batter per tot and make it about 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Cook until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is golden. (To flip the small tots easily, I push the tot to the side of the skillet and use the side of the skillet to tip the tot onto the other side.)
  7. Add more fat to the pan and repeat with remaining batter.
  8. Enjoy while warm with optional Lime Avocado Sauce. To make the avocado sauce, blend the ingredients in a food processor until creay.
  9. Tots are best within an hour or preparing. Store leftover tots in an airtight container in the fridge and warm briefly in a skillet or in the oven before serving.

Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

DSC_0074-e1414467011668.jpg

Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

Ingredients

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari (or coconut aminos to make paleo)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced diagonally
  • 2 cups cole slaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)

Directions

Cut a spaghetti squash in half length wise and scoop out seeds. Lay skin side up in a 13 x 9 pyrex and pour 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until flesh is very tender. Once done, scoop out flesh with a fork so it breaks apart into strings, set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, ginger and white pepper; set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and celery, and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in cabbage until heated through, about 1 minute.

Stir in spaghetti squash and soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.

Serve immediately.
