Cauliflower and Egg Fried Rice

A healthy take on conventional fried rice is made with riced cauliflower sautéed with eggs, peas, carrots, and a touch of sesame oil.

Ingredient: 

  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Salt
  • 1 cup chopped scallions, light and green parts separated (you’ll need 5-6 scallions)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger, from a 1-inch knob (see note)
  • One 2-lb head cauliflower (or 2 pounds “ready to cook” cauliflower rice), thawed if frozen
  • 4-5 tablespoons soy sauce (use gluten-free if needed)
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Asian/toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup chopped cashews or peanuts (optional)

Recipe: 

Using a food processor with a grating disc attached, grate the cauliflower. Alternately, use a box or hand-held grater with big holes to grate on. Put aside. (If you’re using “ready to cook” cauliflower rice, skip this step.)

In a large (10 or 12-inch) nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium heat. Scramble the eggs until they are cooked, adding a little pinch of salt along the way. Place on a little platter and reserve. Cleanse the pan with a cloth.

Pour in three tablespoons of vegetable oil and place over medium heat in the pan. Add the ginger, garlic, and light scallions. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened but not browned. 

Add the sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt, red pepper flakes, 4 tablespoons soy sauce, and chopped cauliflower. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. 

After adding the peas and carrots, simmer for a few more minutes, or until the cauliflower “rice” is crisp-tender and the veggies are heated through. Add the eggs, sesame oil, rice vinegar, dark green scallions, and almonds (if using). If needed, add the final tablespoon of soy sauce after tasting and adjusting the spice. Warm up the food.

11. Herbed Egg Frittata Muffins

Herbed Egg Frittata Muffins

Herbed Egg Frittata Muffins

Make easy, portion-controlled frittatas by baking eggs with your preferred herbs and vegetables in muffin tins. These are great for meal planning or dinner.

Ingredient: 

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh herb leaves – my favorite: dill, parsley, cilantro, basil, chives. All the soft ones.
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2-1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

Recipe: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Whisk the eggs until they are no longer “snotty” in a large mixing dish. The more liquid it becomes, the longer you whisk it.

Remove herb stalks and carefully slice herb leaves. Combine with the whisked eggs.

Whisk eggs vigorously until fully blended with sea salt and pepper.

Line a muffin tray with silicone muffin liners (*see notes), then divide the egg mixture evenly among the muffin liners. Then, on top of each muffin, sprinkle some mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the eggs are completely set. They will first create a dome and then flatten it as they cool.

Enjoy right away, or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days, or freeze in a silicone bag. Place in the refrigerator overnight to defrost, then microwave or bake at 350°F for 3-5 minutes.

Egg and Chickpea Salad Wraps

Wrap hard-boiled eggs, mashed chickpeas, Greek yogurt, and veggies in whole-grain wraps for a protein-rich meal.

Ingredients: 

  • 15-16 oz Chickpeas, (1 can)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Celery, chopped into small pieces (1 stalk)
  • 1 cup Romaine Lettuce, finely chopped/shredded
  • 1/3 cup Pickles, chopped into small pieces (3 mini garlic pickles))
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 3 Tbsp Primal Kitchen Vegan Mayo, vegan
  • 1 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper, (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • Black Salt (Kala Namak), (I use it with the built-in grinder and grind it about 3-5 times. Taste and adjust as needed).

Recipe: 

Rinse and drain the chickpeas before placing them in a large mixing dish.

Mash your chickpeas with a fork. To add texture, leave a handful of chickpeas unmashed.

Next, stir in the chopped celery, shredded lettuce, diced pickles, lemon juice, vegan mayo, and mustard until well combined.

Finally, add your seasonings. I like to start with less salt than normal and then add more as needed.

Once the seasoning is to your satisfaction, stir in the Black Salt.

Egg and Asparagus Tart

Make a beautiful dish with a puff pastry foundation, fried asparagus, eggs, and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese on top.

Ingredient: 

  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed and rolled to about 10 x 15 inches
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 3 ounces gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 small lemon, zested
  • 3 tablespoons feta, crumbled
  • ¼ teaspoon flakey salt, or kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

Recipe:  

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the puff pastry on a piece of parchment paper. Roll it out to about 10 by 15 inches if it isn’t already that size. 

Score a one-inch border all around with a dull knife, then puncture the dough many times within the border with a fork. 10 to 12 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown. Keep the oven on and set aside.

Brush the Dijon mustard all over the border of the puff pastry. It’s fine to deflate the pastry as you brush it. Sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella and gruyere cheese.

Toss the asparagus with the olive oil and kosher salt before arranging it on top of the tart. Make small cracks in the asparagus and crack the eggs into them. Sprinkle the eggs with the majority of the flakey salt, then the remaining salt, black pepper, and lemon zest over the tart.

Bake the assembled tart for about 15 minutes, or until the eggs are set to your preference. Allow the tart to rest for 5 minutes before crumbling the feta cheese on top, cutting, and serving.

Fill a large baking dish halfway with water. Bake for 20 minutes with the peppers cut side down in the water.

In a 12-inch skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Cook until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Cook for 30 seconds after adding the garlic. 

Combine corn, beans, chopped tomatoes, green onions, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Stir for 5 minutes, or until the corn and beans are thoroughly heated.

Egg and Tomato Galette

For a delicious dinner treat, bake a rustic galette with a flaky crust covered with sliced tomatoes, eggs, and fresh herbs.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • For the filling:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 chili pepper, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2-3 large tomatoes, about 1 pound, diced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 8 ounces spinach, chopped
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 4 small eggs, plus one more to use as egg wash

Recipe: 

Combine flour and salt in a food processor. Pulse in the butter until little stones form.

Sour cream, lemon juice, and water should be combined in a small bowl. Add to the food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles a dough. Refrigerate dough for at least one hour, or up to two days, wrapped in plastic wrap.

To create the filling, heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the onions are transparent. Combine the garlic, chili pepper, salt, pepper, caraway seeds, cumin, turmeric, and paprika in a mixing bowl. 1 minute in the microwave. 

Combine the tomatoes, tomato paste, honey, and vinegar in a mixing bowl. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce begins to thicken. Mix in the spinach until it is slightly wilted. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool somewhat. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

While the filling cools, divide the dough into four equal pieces. Each piece of dough should be rolled into an 8-inch round. Place the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Place the tomato mixture in the center, leaving a 12-inch border on all sides. Distribute the feta evenly among the galettes, then fold the dough edges in, overlapping if necessary.

Whisk one egg with a few drops of water in a small bowl. Brush the egg wash over the dough. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the dough is brown.

Remove galettes from the oven and form a well in the center of each with a spoon. Fill each galette with one egg, spreading the whites out with a knife so they don’t pool on top of the yolks. 

If you have large eggs, try using only half of each egg white. You can accomplish this by cracking the egg over a bowl and allowing some of the white to drip out before placing the yolk and remaining whites in the galette’s well. Bake for another 5-8 minutes, or until the whites have set.

Allow it to cool slightly before sprinkling with smoked paprika and freshly ground black pepper to serve.
