Butternut Cauliflower Coconut Curry

A range of textures—crunchy peas, tender vegetables, and silky coconut broth—makes this cool-weather main incredibly satisfying. The chickpea mixture can also be a delicious gluten-free snack: After baking, toss with a little kosher salt, ground cumin, and ground red pepper. Store in an airtight container for three days. To speed up prep, look for pre-cut cauliflower florets in your grocery store’s produce section. Even if you have to prep the cauliflower and cut your own florets, you will only add about five minutes to a 40-minute meatless main.

CALIFORNIA SPICY CRAB STUFFED AVOCADO

All the flavors in a Spicy California roll without the rice! These avocados are stuffed with lump crab, cucumbers and spicy mayo topped with furakike and drizzled with soy sauce. I’ve had this idea in my head all week, I wasn’t exactly sure how it would come out but I’m obsessed with them, they came out so good!
There’s no cooking involved, takes less than 10 minutes to whip up! They are also low-carb, keto, paleo, whole30, dairy-free and gluten-free.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tablespoons light mayo (I used Hellmans) *for whole30 use compliant mayo
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
  • 4 oz lump crab meat
  • 1/4 cup peeled and diced cucumber
  • 1 small Hass avocado (about 4 oz avocado when pitted and peeled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon furakike (I like Eden Shake or use sesame seeds)
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free soy sauce (coconut aminos for whole30/paleo)

COLOMBIAN-STYLE ZUCCHINI RELLENOS

These Stuffed Zucchinis, which are low-carb, Whole30, Keto, gluten-free, dairy-free and Paleo, are inspired from a Colombian dish, Pepino Rellenos which I fell in love with when I was there many years ago. It’s not a dish you would see in a restaurant menu, it’s a dish you would find someone cooking in their kitchen for a weeknight meal. In Colombia, they don’t use zucchinis, instead they use Pepinos known as stuffing cucumbers or Slippery Gourds in English. Because that’s not very common here, I used zucchini which are in season.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 medium (7 ounce each) zucchinis, cut in half lengthwise
  • 8 oz 90% lean ground beef
  • kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2/3 diced cup onion
  • 2 cups plum tomatoes, chopped fine
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped

Cheddar-Stuffed Mini Meatloaves with Chipotle Glaze

Individual meatloaves not only take the guesswork out of portion size, they cook quicker than a large loaf. Look for ground chipotle in the spice section of the market—it gives the glaze a hit of smoke and spice. Serve with roasted broccoli and brown rice tossed with cilantro.
