KetoFlex Recipe: Cauliflower Rice with Spicy Tofu

This is my first recipe as an official KetoFlex person: Rice made from Cauliflower cuddling with Spicy diced Tofu.  Delicious!  If the rest of the food on the "diet" tastes this wonderful, I'm in!


The ingredients list is below.  You might just want to do a scroll through this little tutorial to get a gawk at how to make cauliflower rice (very easy) and spice up your tofu (also easy):

Start with a lovely organic cauliflower.  This is how it looks when it has had its leaves removed.

Pulse it through your food processor until it resembles rice throughout.  Or, alternatively, you can grate it with a box grater.

I like to dry it off so that it doesn't cook up too limp.  I just line a pan with a couple of layers of paper towel, pour in the 'rice', and let it sit a bit.  Then I soak up excess water with towels from the top.

Cut a block of pressed organic tofu into cubes and dredge completely in  a Taco seasoning like Simply Organic Southwest Taco Seasoning Mix, Certified Organic, 1.13-Ounce Packets (Pack of 12) Cover the cubes well.  Mmm.  Smells soooo good!

Cook it up as described below, and you have a really satsifying, tasty meal.  Top with Guacamole.  This should serve 2-3 adults.

INGREDIENTS

3 C. of homemade or packaged Cauliflower Rice
1 block Extra Firm (Pressed) Organic Tofu, diced
2 T. Taco Seasoning
2 T. Nutritional Yeast
Fresh Lime and Cilantro (Optional-- But I'd say go for it!)
2 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3/4 C. Guacamole (your own recipe or packaged)

METHOD OF PREPARATION

  1. Drain and press the tofu.  I generally put the block in a colander and put a piece of paper towel on the block and then carefully place 3 tins of food over the toweling for about an hour or so.  Then dredge the tofu in Taco Seasoning, coating as much as possible.  Set the tofu cubes aside for at least fifteen minutes.
  2. Heat the Olive Oil and gently stir fry the tofu until it begins to turn golden
  3. Add the cauliflower rice.  Stir together thoroughly.  Cover with a lid.  Cook and stir occasionally for about 10 minutes until the rice has softened.
  4. Stir in Nutritional Yeast.  Sprinkle on chopped Cilantro and squeeze on some Lime Juice at serving time (can provide lime wedges to the diners)
  5. Top each serving with 1/4+ C. of guacamole (2-3 servings)

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
