Parmesan-Roasted Cauliflower

The combination of meaty, caramelized cauliflower florets and some just-this-side-of-burnt onions has become our go-to winter side dish.

Ingredients

SERVINGS: 4

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan

Recipe Tips

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Toss cauliflower florets on a large rimmed baking sheet with thyme, garlic, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast, tossing occasionally, until almost tender, 35-40 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan, toss to combine, and roast until cauliflower is tender, 10–12 minutes longer.

Paleo Zucchini Chips

Source: Jenn’s Facebook Page
Ingredients:

  • One Zucchini (The larger the better, to counter shrinkage)
  • Paleo friendly cooking spray
  • Salt & Pepper

Method

  1. Slice your Zucchini thin. I would say 1/4 to 1/8 of an inch. You can use a food processor, but depending on your slicer, it can end up a little too thin.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. That is around 100-105 degrees centigrade.
  3. Spray your baking sheet with your paleo friendly cooking spray.
  4. Lay out all the chips and spray cooking sprat lightly on the chips. Alternatively you could just toss it in some Coconut oil
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes to two hours, or until they get to the right level of crispiness for you.
  6. Eat within two to three hours.

And there you have it, rather yummy Paleo Zucchini chips.

Parmigiano Reggiano Crisps

Source: Whole Foods
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup grated (not shredded) Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme 
Method:
Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.Mix cheese and thyme in a bowl. To form each crisp, spoon 2 to 3 teaspoons of the cheese mixture on to a prepared baking sheet to make a small pile. Space the piles 2 to 3 inches apart.
When both baking sheets are full, lightly press cheese with the back of a spoon or your fingers to flatten each pile into a 2-inch circle.Bake until slightly browned on top, 8 to 12 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and cool a few minutes to let crisps firm up. S
lide parchment paper off the baking sheet and on to a wire rack. Use a spatula to gently loosen crisps. They should be slightly flexible at this point, but will harden as they finish cooling. Repeat process with remaining cheese mixture.Allow crisps to cool completely before storing in an airtight container, layered between sheets of waxed paper.
