Cauliflower pizza

I love pizza.
On lchf you can have cheese.
But you can't have the base.
So I could go and buy a pizza and just eat the topping.

Or I could make this :)

Pizza base:
1 head of cauliflower - grate and steam. Squeeze out all the moisture in a kitchen towel and leave to cool.
250g grated mozarella
1 tsp Italian herbs
1 egg

Mix together well.
Flatten on a silpat sheet on a baking tray (needs to be around 8mm thick). The thinner the better but don't have any gaps.
Pat with a kitchen towel and bake for 15 mins at 180°. Turn up oven and cook for further 10 mins at 220°.

1 tsp Tomatoe paste
1 tsp Italian herbs
1 tsp Olive oil
Mix together and smooth on base.
Top with your desired toppings: salami, ham, olives, mushrooms, bacon,  avo, capers, anchovies - pile it high!
Top with mozarella - use as much as you like

Bake in oven at 220° for 8 mins

Top with rocket and devour!

Dr Paw Paw - my love!

Tashas has a staple on their menu - paw paw, yoghurt, almonds and honey.

I decided to mix it up a bit :)

1 paw paw
1 handful of walnuts
Raw honey
Double cream yoghurt
Lavender flowers

Chop, dress, eat

Thank me later

Celeriac fries

A delicious alternative to the usual suspects.

I spiced these with thyme, rosemary and chilli. Would work well with paprika as well.

1 celeriac bulb - peeled and thinly sliced into fries
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper and preferred spices and herbs

Combine in a bag, coat well with spices and oil.

Lay on baking tray.
Bake at 220°C for 25 mins

Salt and serve. Super moreish

Lamb meatballs with cumin, coriander and chilli

Nice to keep in the fridge for a snack or a light dinner with salad and yoghurt

500g lamb mince
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp coriander
1 red chilli deseeded
1/2 bunch coriander finely chopped
1 egg
Salt and pepper

Mix together and fry slowly in coconut oil.

Serve with tsatsiki and humus (if you're eating chick peas) and a Greek salad.
