Good morning! I hope this finds you more energized and focused. We have finally surpassed the sugar and bread withdrawals! I have a TON of energy. Not sure if I have posted this, but I have increased my protein to the size of my hand, and I will drink a second shake if needed since my workouts need more fuel. Adjust if you need! This was adjustment was a minor miracle for my hubs!
So this weekend I made soup, salad, and taco wraps. But my fave, and one that will make its way to the recurring menu after this, is a cauliflower wrap. I don’t even like cauliflower, and this one–OMGOODness it is delicious! I double the recipe I found and we ate them all that day.
This recipe is not mine. A friend found it on this site. I went c-ra-zy with the herbs. (More than in the original recipe). It tasted like a fluffy herbed crepe!! It is as close to bread as we will get in these next 2 weeks!
here ya go
1 head cauliflower
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp basil (i had 5 leaves of fresh that I added in addition to this, too–cuz we love us some basil)
1 tsp oregano
1/2 + tsp thyme
1/2 + tsp parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
Parchment paper (which I didn’t have and it crumbled a bit because of this)
Preheat oven to 375. Grab the blender or processor. Chop up the cauliflower, to a rice-like consistency.
Now it’s time to steam them up. Add a 1/2 cup of water to a pot, and add the chopped cauliflower. Cover with a lid and cook on medium high for 8 minutes or until tender.
Drain and press firmly with a towel to get all the moisture out.
Now add the spices.
And the eggs.
Give it a good stir.
Now the original recipe says to form circles, but I am not into that cuz it takes too much time. Whichever you prefer. I grabbed my glass baking dish (a 9×13) and sprayed it w olive oil. If you have parchment paper, use that. Press 1/2 the mix in. Spread it thinly but not so much you can see the bottom of the dish.
I was up in the mountains, so it cooked faster, but I’d say between 15-17 minutes. Edges will be golden and the middle will be firm.
Now from here the paths can diverge. I cut mine in half (one serving), and made turkey asparagus wraps. Then I made an egg and veggie wrap. The possibilities are endless! Let me know how it goes! (Feel free to comment!)
