Paleo Cauliflower "pasta" Primavera, gluten free

I'm enjoying Pasta Primavera without the pasta!
Hubby is out tonight with the boys and I'm making dinner for just me. My first love is pasta but I'm off carbs for awhile. That's why I came up with this Paleo Cauliflower Pasta Primavera Recipe!
I was going through my veggie drawer and I started thinking that using my organic cauliflower would give this dish the "al dente" texture that I crave. It even looks and tastes like Pasta Primavera when you coated in sauce and Parmesan...

Cream of Chicken, Cauliflower & Fennel Soup recipe, gluten free, clean eating
We're crazy about homemade soups at our house. So when I saw the Romanesco Cauliflower and Fennel in my box from Space Girl Organics I decided to make a creamy soup for the Children's Home.  It turned out great!

Low Carb Chicken & Cauliflower "Pasta" e Fagioli, gluten free

Do you leave veggies in the fridge and they go bad?  You're not alone!  I hate wasting food, don't you?
So I work hard to use all of my beautiful organic produce in our dinners, but sometimes the week just disappears! (where does it go?)
When that happens I make soup. It's easy to make and works for a fast dinner or pack it in a thermos and it makes a great lunch for work or school.
This is one of my all time favorites.  I adore Pasta e Fagioli, but I'm not eating grains these days, so the cauliflower is a perfect low carb substitute.   You won't even miss the pasta!

This wonderful cauliflower pizza crust has almost no carbs!  but will it hold together and taste like a pizza?  Yes!  It's amazing how good it is and easy to make with one head of organic cauliflower and a little cheese.  I love using fresh organic vegetables for my pizza's from our local Space Girl Organics.
The secret to a perfect cauliflower crust is to squeeze the cauliflower in a tea towel after microwaving to get all of the water out. You'll be amazed how much water there is!  Put the cauliflower into a clean towel, fold and twist from the top and really squeeze the water out.  Careful, if you're impatient like me it's going to be scorching hot, so cool before squeezing or wear heat proof kitchen mitts.
Compared to my favorite yeast pizza crust recipe that makes two huge pizza's, this recipe makes about an 18 inch pan pizza.   I like leftovers so I think I'll double the recipe next time.  You need to press the "dough" into a circle and if you are using a pan with holes like I did it will go through the holes a bit.  I just scraped it off the underside of the pan and put it back on top and popped it in the oven.  I came out perfect and after baking it didn't stick to the pan at all.

Skinny Cauliflower Recipes!


 I love these substitutes!!  Each recipe makes about 6 servings. Only 60 calories per serving (without the sour cream or cheese) compared to rice at 242 calories or mashed potatoes at 237!!  If you add the cheese and sour cream it will add apx 70 more calories per serving.   Still not bad at all.  Try adding herbs and  seasonings instead to keep it really Skinny.  Enjoy!  xx
