This recipe is from Lindsay Grimes-Freedman’s Cookbook, Cauliflower Power. She is the woman behind TheToastedPinenut.com. She has incredibly delicious and easy recipes that are gluten & dairy free and typically low carb (her husband has T1D!).
This low carb seedy loaf bread is the answer to all of your sandwich (and french toast) prayers! And it has 3 cups of cauliflower in it - so a heaaaavy serving of hidden veggies. And, as always, it's gluten free, dairy free, and paleo.
1/2 CupArrowroot Flour (or Tapioca Flour)
2TablespoonsApple Cider Vinegar
3TablespoonsSeed Mix (I like to use Sesame, Sunflower, Pumpkin, and Chia)
Heat oven to 350F
Cook cauliflower rice, dry saute, for about 5 minutes.
Allow rice to cool, transfer to a dish towel and squeeze out excess liquid. Set aside.
In a high-powered blender, combine eggs and tahini about 30 seconds. Add cauliflower rice and blend 1 minute.
Add remaining ingredients and blend for 1 minute. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes.
Pour batter into a 9x5 loaf pan and sprinkle with seed topping. Bake for 1 hour.
Cauliflower contains sulforaphane which is a sulfur that's associated with a whole slew of benefits including: improving kidney function, balancing blood pressure, slowing tumor growth, killing cancer stem cells, impriving DNA methylation. It's also anti-inflammatory, which is very important for those of use with diabetes or any other autoimmune disease.Cauliflower is also loaded with vitamin C and considered to be a good source of Vitamin K, magnesium (see why magnesium is really important for people with T1D here), B vitamins, folate, potassium, and manganese.Pasture Raised Eggs are an excellent source of high-quality protein, raise HDL cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) and lower triglycerides, contain choline (an essential B vitamin), and contain antioxidants that target eye health.Tahini (sesame seed butter) contains the antioxidant lignan, which helps reduce inflammation and free radical damage. It also is great for liver and kidney health!Flax is high in omega-3 fatty acids which is an excellent ant-inflammatory and a great source of dietary fiber.Almonds are one of the highest sources of dietary Vitamin E. They are also great sources of manganeses, magnesium, and are loaded with antioxidants!
