These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
This evening, youngest son came for dinner. We had pan seared fresh wild caught pacific cod that I picked up at Costco yesterday. I made a simple mixture of almond flour, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne pepper. I lightly dusted both sides of the fillets with the flour mixture and sauteed them on each side for about 5 minutes. I also had some leftover extra sauteed fresh spinach that I mixed with some sliced fresh mushrooms and seasoned with salt and pepper and then after the cod was cooked, I moved the fillets to a baking pan and topped them with the spinach-mushroom combo and sprinkled with some finely grated Parmesan cheese and ran under the broiler for a few minutes until browned. It was simple, easy and delicious! I also tried a recipe I found on the back of the Publix weekly sale flyer for Cheesy Cauliflower Puff. It sounded and looked good. I modified it a bit to make it a little lower in carbs as well as grain free by substituting half-and-half for the milk as well as 1/2 cup almond flour with 2 tablespoons butter cut in for the "baking mix" called for in the recipe. It had lots of cheese -- probably more than I really care for considering it only had 12-oz of cauliflower in the casserole. It had 8 ounces of shredded white Vermont cheese, 1/2 cup of ricotta and 4 ounces of cream cheese as well as eggs. While it was good, I probably would not make it again -- it was just too rich for my taste. Below, I snapped a couple photos for you to see. Enjoy!
