An Amazing (& Easy) Gluten Free Dinner

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 (:

Bon Appetit!
