Cauliflower: The Paleo Game-Changer

Today, I was super grumpy upon seeing this sign at the ice cream place a mile from my house. . .That I drive past twice a day. . .Grrrr

But my dinner changed everything.

I went off this recipe: Primal Chicken Alfredo, but changed it a little.

1) So first, I marinated 4 chicken breasts in olive oil, balsamic, 2 cloves of garlic (minced), some salt and pepper

2) I browned the chicken on each side on the stove, then put it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes

3) While the chicken baked, I put 3 c of chicken broth in a pot, and 1/2 a cauliflower in the chicken broth (broken into little florets).  I covered the pot and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

4) In another pan, I put 1/4 c grassfed unsalted butter and 6 cloves of garlic (minced), and cooked it on medium heat until the garlic softened.

5) I put the chicken broth, cauliflower, butter, and garlic in the blender, and just pureed it all (I didn’t even add salt or pepper)

6) Sauteed two zucchinis, sliced like pasta, in a pan with some olive oil, sea salt, and pepper, and cooked it until the zucchini softened.

7) served the “alfredo” sauce over the zucchini and chicken. . .

It sounds crazy, but it’s literally the best thing I’ve ever eaten.  I may eat this cauliflower puree all day every day.  Alone.  With a spoon.

Adam went nuts over it as well.  He licked the bowl clean.

And we both agreed – this would work better with the turkey meatballs from my Fall Pasta than with the chicken in the Primally Inspired recipe.

Finally, the lesson of the day: it’s a good thing I never went to med school.  Based on my cutting skills with the zucchini, anyone I had to perform surgery on would be screwed.
