Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli:




Preheat oven to 425*
Cut up about 2lbs of broccoli and toss with a little bit of oil (I used plain veg oil) and some salt and pepper
Roast broccoli for about 10-15 mins
Add 1lb raw shrimp tossed with a bit of salt, pepper and garlic powder
Mix together with broccoli and roast another 10-15 mins (until shrimp is done)
Squeeze a little bit of lemon juice on top and serve.

*You can really use whatever spices you want - red pepper flakes, onion powder, cumin, etc. Next time I am going to add a bit of sliced red bell peppers in with the broccoli.

These look wonderful! I had not thought about deep frying them. Any instructions on keeping the mozzarella intact?

Please forgive me taking so long to respond. We have been dealing with some sick family members. I have it written in a notebook and now that we are back home (hubby and brother were in hospital - at opposite ends of town! - and the Dallas area is pretty big, ha, but all is well now.), I will be looking for the notebook. I am so glad you reminded me about making these rolls. When I went back on induction this time, I forgot about the rolls - but I have not forgotten about you. I promise to get back to you.

Oh Joycee! That is so much to deal with!
I have lived in Dallas and it is huge! You are so kind to keep these on your mind.
I hope everyone is on the mend and I hope you take some time to BREATHE!

Thank you for thinking of me - I can wait.

You can use frozen. Just make sure you drain it well.

I chop up the cauliflower and boil it in water with a splash of cream. (supposed to help keep the whiteness LOL)
Once it's to the point of being able to put a fork through it, drain it and make sure it is drained well.
I then do batches in my food processor and puree it. I add 4oz cream cheese to 1 head of cauliflower.

Put it in a pan, top with bacon bits, cheddar cheese, green onion,whatever you like and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes!

I don't see why not - I use my stick blender.

My mashed cauli recipe -
Cauli - a small head or 1 lb frozen, steamed until very tender, drained
butter - about 2 Tbsp
cream cheese -about 4 oz
garlic powder - to taste
onion powder - to taste
salt - to taste

I don't bother with liquid cream because the cream cheese gives it a nice white color. So just toss all the ingredients together while the cauli is still hot, and go at it with the stick blender until it's completely smooth. After that, I add coarse ground black pepper and stir that in. (or blend briefly - you don't want to blend so long that it chops up the black pepper)

Don't expect it to taste like mashed potatoes. It's a lovely vegetable dish in it's own right, and also great with some xanthan thickened gravy on it.

Grilled chops, spinach gratin, bell pepper slaw.


For the spinach I took goat cheese, melted it in some cream, added the spinach, handful of mozz, handful of cheddar, lots of garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper and a beaten egg, baked it till brown and bubbly then added some parm on top. **I don't believe goat cheese is induction friendly but you can sub cream cheese.

bell pepper slaw: and because I can never follow a recipe as written: I cut the bell peppers to 3, left out the celery and onion (Mike won't eat it) cut down the splenda to about a tsp (3 Tbsp just seemed like way too much sweetner) left out the mustard seeds (there's plenty from the whole grain mustard)and cut down the celery seed to maybe 1/4 tsp)

It's kind of a weird trio, but super yummy!

I used a big bag of frozen.

Fresh would work, but it's such a pain to cook so much of it and wind up with 1/4cup of it in the end

I made my first batch. I need to figure out the mashing part since I dont have a food processor and my little one for smoothies didn't work at all. It was surprisingly good. I need to tweek it a bit but it wasn't terrible. Thanks for sharing.

You can also buy fresh spinach in bags and just toss it in the freezer. I do this for smoothies for my kids. It won't thaw back to fresh of course, but when you put it into a smoothie it kind of shatters. And I toss it into other dishes like omlettes and soups too. Not sure of the advantage over the bagged kind shown above except that I have tried that in a smoothie and it's gross, so freezing thd fresh works great. I buy the humongous bags a Costco and simply toss them in the freezer when I get home.
