I was at my friend Tracy's house last weekend and she is well-known in our group as one of the best chefs around. Her son was born with an allergy to gluten and as a result, she and her family have adopted a primarily gluten-free diet. Tracy cooks most nights of the week, and her meals are beautiful, colorful, healthy and many are even manageable for an amateur like me.
I asked her to share a few of her weeknight recipes with me and I made this delicious concoction last night: Stir-Fried Steak with Veggies Over Coconut, Lime & Ginger Cauliflower "Rice"
Does your mouth water just hearing the name of the dish? Mine did...
Here it is:
1. Add avocado oil to a cast iron skillet on medium/high heat and stir fry peppers, onions, snap peas and brussel sprouts (quartered)..or really any veggies you want in your stir-fry. Add strips or cubes of steak.
2. Cut the cauliflower into florets and pulse them in a food-processor. Do this in relatively small batches (i.e.: 4 groups for a large head of cauliflower).
3. Heat coconut oil in a separate skillet and add fresh ginger. Throw in the cauliflower crumbs and cook to your desired temp (I like mine a little crusty/well-done). Add lime zest, a little lime juice and salt to taste.
4. Place the stir-fried veggies and steak over your coconut-lime-cauliflower "rice" in a shallow bowl. Add some Siracha and enjoy a mouth-watering, gluten-free meal that you will surely want to incorporate in your weekly rotation!
For those of you who (like me) may have thought gluten-free meals had to be boring or unexciting...we hope this delicious, flavorful and easy to make recipe provides you the wheat-free inspiration you need (:
