Strawberry Mango Sorbet

4 frozen strawberries

1 cup frozen mango

1/4 cup 100% white grape juice. I used white grape because this is all I had in the fridge.

Method:

let me first say that I have a cheap blender but it works for me. So I have to add liquid in order for the blender to work.

Place frozen fruit in blender. Add half of the liquid and blend. slowly add remaining liquid while blending. You might have to stop and give the mixture a stir to dislodge any pieces of fruit before continuing to blend.

Blend until smooth.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I recently stumbled across this recipe for cauliflower pizza crust. I never heard of it before and was so excited to try it.I planned to try it and even put it in my meal plan 2 weeks ago.

I read the warnings people gave about making sure that all the water was squeezed out…But, it looked like it was good with a little moisture. Plus my finger was still hurting so sueezing out the water was not much of an option as I was not going to do anything to cause my finger to hurt any worse that it did. DEFINITELY NOT!

So I made this recipe inspired by  this recipe

 

I large cauliflower  head

 

1/4 cup cassava flour

1/2 cup garbanzo flour

 

1 tbsp.dried oregano

1tsp dried marjoram

 

Salt to taste

 

3 flax “eggs” (1 egg = 1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal and 3 Tbsp. water, so 3 Tbsp. flaxseed meal and 9 Tbsp. water)

Method:

Cook cauliflower. Drain and mince until cauliflower resembles “rice”. Pour cauliflower “rice” in cheese cloth and squeeze out all the liquid.  Mix flax eggs and let sit for about 2 minutes to gel up. Put cauliflower “rice” in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.

Place cauliflower dough on a greased pizza pan and shape. Bake for about 20-30 minutes until the crust is golden brown.

Remove from oven and top with ingredients of choice.
