Cauliflower rice, Lemon dill carrots and Homemade Vinaigrette

Here are 3 recipes that have been on my menu while I've been eating primal/paleo. They are all becoming staples around here, are very yummy and very healthy. Give them a try!

Homemade Vinaigrette
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon dijon or other mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a jar with a lid. Tighten lid and shake until well combined. Refrigerate unused portion.

Lemon Dill Carrots
2 C baby carrots
1/3 C Lemon juice
2 tsp dill

Place baby carrots in a microwave safe bowl. Pour lemon juice over carrots then sprinkle with dill. Cover lightly and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Pierce carots with a knife or fork to test for tenderness. Continue microwaving in 30 second increments until carrots reach desired tenderness.

Cauliflower Rice
1 head of Cauliflower
1 tbs coconut oil or bacon grease or pan drippings from other cooked meat

Using a cheese grater grate the cauliflower using the large shredder. This will produce little bits of cauliflower that look like rice. When you have your desired amount, heat oil in a skillet then add the riced cauliflower. Heat on medium heat stirring continuously until cauliflower browns slightly. Remove from heat, cover and let sit until ready to serve.

  1. Hi Angie-

    I am making rounds on the Washington Bloggy Moms page. Wanted to drop in and say Hi! (We are practically neighbors too- I am out in Monroe)

    My blog encourages women to take good care of themselves- I can tell by your blog that you are conscientious of that too. I hope you will stop by and say hello.

    Take Good Care!

  3. I made a variation on the Cauliflower rice last night. I sauteed 1/2 diced onion, 1/2 diced tomato and 1/2 diced orange pepper in bacon grease first before adding the cauliflower. It tasted a lot like mexican rice to me. I'm thinking of mixing in an egg next time to make it more like fried rice.
