POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

My daughter invited us to dine with her a while ago and made the most delicious vegetarian meal.  The flavours for such a simple dish were so intense served with a side of fluffy rice and a few squares of crispy salty paneer, I just had to do a repeat performance for the two of us.  My husband, a meat lover, was amazed that a bowl of simple vegetables could be SO good. We had some leftovers so I mashed…

QUICK CHICKEN MASALA with CAULIFLOWER RICE

QUICK CHICKEN MASALA with CAULIFLOWER RICE

I’m trying out some more low carb recipes this week and am loving this easy cauliflower rice.  You grind it in a food processor or use a hand grater, fry it up in a little oil and season.  Francois said that when he closed his eyes and tasted it, was almost like eating real rice.  One whole cauliflower is more than enough for the two of us so guess what? It freezes really well.  I put the extra into a…

EASY CHEESY FAUX-TATO CASSEROLE

EASY CHEESY FAUX-TATO CASSEROLE

Today’s post is all about the cauliflower. So many things can be made with this unassuming vegetable. I think it’s OK to call a vegetable unassuming. One of my favourites is to use it to make a faux alfredo sauce which I mix in with my Three Cheese Hash Brown Casserole (recipe here) And for a low carb alternative to a summery barbecue picnic type dish try using cauliflower in a salad instead of potatoes. (recipe here) Fresh cauliflower is…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 25 and 26

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 25 and 26

Our Whole30 Thirty Day reboot is almost over. Just four days to go! I’ve found that fitting in three full meals works best when the second is light, like a snack or as today, a soup.  I located another of my daughter’s delicious creations, modified it to make it Whole30 compliant, used a very tender cut of beef and made her lettuce wraps.  Just one little filet mignon was all we needed for the two of us.  On the menu…

LEMONY CARROT CAULIFLOWER SOUP

LEMONY CARROT CAULIFLOWER SOUP

We are having guests over. What to serve, what to serve. It’s been a busy week, busy month really, and there will be more to come before the end of the month. I know it’s a culinary cardinal rule to avoid trying new things when inviting friends to your home for a meal (land or water) but I was dying to try this soup recipe… …easy (busy week) …healthy (always a plus) …and tiny boat galley friendly (isn’t that afterall…

PASTA and PEAS ALFREDO with BABY CLAMS

PASTA and PEAS ALFREDO with BABY CLAMS

Here I am again showing off my love for this marvellous versatile vegetable CAULIFLOWER. (Psst: if you haven’t tried my Cauliflower (not potato) Salad yet – shame on you!) I have been making Creamy Cauliflower Sauce a long time, in truth before the birth of Sea Salt Galley Kat when I was posting a recipe or three in our little boat blog, R.E.D. sails in the sunset and have recently begun adapting more cauliflower recipes for boat meals. At home…

CAULIFLOWER (not potato) SALAD

CAULIFLOWER (not potato) SALAD

I have been on a cauliflower kick lately. So many surprisingly delicious recipes that can be created using this unassuming vegetable. If you are ‘carb conscious’ as we aren’t, this is a real winner and great substitution for traditional potato salad and easily just as delicious…     CAULIFLOWER (not potato) SALAD 4 cups cooked (steamed) cauliflower florets 1/2 cup chopped onion 3 boiled eggs (yolks removed and set aside, whites chopped) 1/4 cup mayonnaise or Greek yogurt 1 tbsp…

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

Several months ago I found an interesting post from one of my favourite bloggers, Lindsay of A Pinch of Yum. She had created a recipe for Creamy Cauliflower Sauce which she transformed into a delicious rich-tasting Alfredo-like concoction without the scary calories and fat content.   I made it this summer at home, stashed some in the freezer, and took the rest onboard for an evening meal. For you lucky boaters who have a blender onboard this would be an…
