Roasted Cauliflower Tots

What a great “pop in your mouth” appetizer!!  Nothing fried, nothing battered, nothing processed and best of all…not lacking in taste! Because cauliflower is one of the veggies that tend to be lower on the pesticide list, this makes for a cheap {only $1-something per head} and healthy, allergy-free snack— or side dish, or appetizer… you choose ;).

What’cha need:

1 head of cauliflower

1 T coconut oil

sea salt

pepper

Instructions:

  • cut cauliflower off of stalk  and into bite size pieces
  • place into a salad spinner- rinse well- then spin off any excess water
  • drizzle melted coconut oil over top of the florets and then spin again to disperse oil
  • pour onto baking sheet and season
  • cook  400 for 40-60 minutes (depending on the texture you want)–center rack-  flipping every 20 minutes

We love these dipped in Blueberry Ketchup! They go well with most meals but usually end up a side dish to burgers at my house 🙂 Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Hash

So I bought a new cheese grater with full intentions of making some homemade hash browns just so I wouldn’t have to wait for my taters to bake in the oven.{Busy mom here}. Mission accomplished!

These won me over instantly! A nice combo of sweet and savory!

Hash

Small pic- Large taste

Sweet Potato Hash

1 large Sweet potato rinsed and grated, skin on.
Half yellow Onion chopped or sliced- or a little bit of both, no ones judging you in your kitchen 😉

Heat about 3-4 T coconut oil over med-high heat. Add onion, stir and allow to soften a bit. Then toss in your shredded sweet potato. Stir only enough to coat with oil and let sit. Add some black pepper, and parsley. Sprinkle some sea salt, paprika, and a dab of cinnamon. Add a teaspoon minced garlic. By now your taters should be ready to flip/stir. Not too much stirring or you will end up with mush.
Mine were done in about ten minutes. I’m not an expert when it comes to making the perfect textured hash browns but the taste of these hit the spot! Also, sorry for the lack of measurements. I get into the kitchen sometimes and do my own thing. But the spices I mentioned first were heavier than those I finished with. I hope you like:)

Baked Fries

I had no idea before, but certain fast food chain french fries have dairy in them! Silly me for thinking a french fry was just a potato. Either way, we don’t do that fast food but we love to enjoy a well known fast food fave– the fry. 🙂

Baked Fries

  • 1 organic potato
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • chili powder
  • sea salt
  1. Cut potato in half. Flip onto flat side. Cut into equal sizes
  2. Put fries into a mixing bowl
  3. Dry with paper towels
  4. Add oil and spices.
  5. Mix until fries are coated with oil and spices

Spread evenly on baking sheet. I use one of the round ones usually used for pizza! Bake for 30 min on 375* flipping half way through.
Note* there isn’t a measurement next to the salt because I find different people like different amounts. I do highly recommend using sea salt to keep things healthy!
Blake loves these! And they are guilt free! So now he can enjoy fries that you know are both allergy friendly and healthy! –Yes, white potatoes are just as healthy as sweet potatoes– Both are OK in moderation!  & When you can afford to, BUY ORGANIC because potatoes are one of the veggies with high levels of pesticides!! Eck!  🙂

Coming soon: I will be posting my recipe for sweet potato fries so keep an eye out for it!
