Paleo Friendly, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

  • 2 cups (500 mL) boneless, skinless chicken breast(s), cooked, chopped
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut oil
  • 1 cup (250 mL) onion(s), diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) cumin, ground
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) curry powder
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) David’s Blackening Rub
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) salt
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) coconut flour
  • 3 cups (750 mL) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup (250 mL) butternut squash, peeled, diced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) broccoli, chopped up
  • 1 red pepper(s), diced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) parsley, fresh, minced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) quiona, dry


Cook the quinoa according to package instructions. Sauté onion, garlic and spices in coconut oil until tender. Sprinkle in coconut flour and stir well to blend. Sauté for 2 more minutes. Pour in chicken broth and blend well to break down any lumps. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Simmer uncovered for another 5 minutes.  Stir in vegetables and chicken and season with salt to taste. Continue to simmer until the curry comes to a boil and the vegetables are tender crisp. The thickness of the curry depends on your taste and the combination of ingredients. You may need to add an additional cup of chicken broth if it is too thick. Just before serving stir in fresh minced parsley (or cilantro or basil).

3. Cauliflower Rice

  • 1 head of Cauliflower

Wash one head of cauliflower and pat dry. Throw it in a blender and chop it until it is in small pieces (like the size of quinoa). You can also grate through a cheese grater. Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil (I prefer coconut or avocado) to medium heat, and stir in the cauliflower and continue stirring until cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste.

cauliflower pizza

Gluten Free

  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, coarsely chopped or grated
  • 1/2 cup cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Place cauliflower pieces through the feeding tube of the food processor using the grating blade; pulse until all the cauliflower is shredded. You can also use a cheese grater or good knife and large cutting board.
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until cooled, about 15 minutes. If you worry that your cauliflower pieces will fall through the steamer, line with steamer with lettuce or cabbage.
  3. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat or greased aluminum foil (coconut spray is proffered).
  4. Stir cheese, parsley, egg, garlic, salt, and pepper into cauliflower until evenly incorporated. Pour mixture onto the prepared baking sheet; press and shape into a pizza crust.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
  6. Eat as is or top with your favorite pizza or pasta sauce and ingredients (meat should be cooked) and pop back in the oven until the cheese is melted. I usually use back bacon and mushrooms or pineapple.
