Grain–Free Cauliflower, Sultana & Toasted Almond Pilaf

Something Clean Something Green

First of all, I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone that’s checked out my blog, liked my recipes and said nice things about them too! It means a lot to me, and it’s spurring me on to create more and more great recipes to share with you all! So thank you again!

Now onto this latest recipe! I wanted to create a rice-based dish, but using cauliflower instead of grains. If you’ve never tried grating cauliflower and using it like this, I urge you to try it! It’s surprising how the cauliflower takes on a rice-like appearance once it’s cooked, and if you’re following a carb-free/Paleo diet, it’s ideal! I’ve used quite a wide-ranging combination of spices, but if you wanted to add your own favourites, and dial the chili up or down, feel free! The sweetness of the sultanas and the crunch of the almonds…

Energizing Fruit Juice Popsicles (Popsicle Mold Giveaway, ends Friday, July 17th)

LE ZOE MUSINGS

I’ve become a popsicle snob, if there is even such a thing. I refuse to buy store popsicles because I can make them myself without compromising the flavor or the health benefits. If you’ve noticed, I’ve written a few popsicle posts now. It’s because I really do enjoy making them! The process is simple and easy. Plus, I can feed my kids these without an ounce of guilt.

Energizing Juice Popsicles by Le Zoe Musings

Recently, I made juice popsicles out of several types of fruits. Just blend the fresh fruits with a bit of water and a little sugar if the fruit is too tangy. Pour the blended concoction into the popsicle molds, freeze, and voila! Fruit juice popsicles that’ll give you enough energy to last the entire day. The flavors seen here are banana, strawberry, blackberry, and orange.

I’ve been using Prepworks popsicle molds and love them. Here’s your chance to win one. There will…

Cherry Banana Smoothie Bowl

LE ZOE MUSINGS

This morning felt different. It was refreshing and so cozy. Snuggling under the blanket with the kiddos was ideal. At sixty something degrees, it was a nice change from the exhausting heat. With a refreshing morning, there has to be a matching refreshing breakfast.

My cherry banana smoothie bowl fits the bill, perfectly.

Hello Penzance! The Shore, has arrived.

There is an obvious attraction to food photography. Gluttons clutching full frame sensors armed with macro attachments, while they salivate like enthusiastic hyenas, repeating the phrase “It would be a shame not to”.

I, am no exception.

However, occasionally you come across a perfectly wonderful meal that makes you smile and make “mmmmm” noises like a true pro. Chef Bruce Rennie at The Shore, Penzance did just that. I had the pleasure of enjoying a delicious meal, so bold in its simplicity, I almost forgot to pick up my picture box and do what I love to do. Luckily my love of great food is only matched by my passion for taking photos of it (cue the snap happy hyena).

Bruce cooks food that you wish you had. Working with seasons he keeps the menu simple, uses locally sourced produce from cornish suppliers and his very own garden allotment! If you get…
