So we are a few days into our first diet challenge, which is all about adding Superfoods into our daily meals as often as possible. You can review the challenge here. Make sure to spend some time reviewing the comments because many of you guys have added to the list of Superfoods and we now have a much longer list which you can choose from.
Today I would like to share with you a recipe made up of Superfoods from the list. For those of you who think that you hate Cauliflower, you are going to be in for a tasty surprise. Freddy absolutely hates Cauliflower with a passion and I fed this to him without him knowing what it was. He loved it. Just a quick tip, Freddy added some grilled, diced Turkey breasts to this recipe and I added a scoop of plain, tasteless protein. The protein I used had no carbs or fat – just pure whey protein. I also added cashews, because they are also a Superfood that have a beneficial effect on health and weight management if eaten in moderation. Cashews are a great source of good fat and are considered a low fat nut, because compared to other nuts (almonds, walnuts, peanuts and pecans) they contain less fat per serving. I just love cashews – that’s the other reason why added them to this recipe
Extra Virgin Olive oil, about 400ml of Milk, Cashew nuts, 1/2 of large Cauliflower, 80ml of Coconut Milk, 3 Onions, 3 cloves of Garlic, 2 tablespoons of fresh ground Ginger, 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin, salt.
Chop the onions and saute them in 2 tbsp of Olive oil until slightly brown.
Add 2tbsp of ground fresh ginger and 4 cloves of garlic. Use the garlic press.
Add Cinnamon, Turmeric, and Cumin.
Add Milk and Coconut Milk. Make sure that the Cauliflower is not completely covered by the milk. The cream should be thicker than soup. Cook on a medium heat until the Cauliflower turns soft.
Let it cool down and then use a food processor to blend it into a creamy consistency.
Following this recipe you will be able to make 2 portions. When you pour the cream onto the plate, don’t forget to add a handful of Cashew nuts and salt to taste. This recipe by itself is low in protein so try to add either lean meat like Freddy did with his Turkey, or you can add the whey protein like I did, or you can try soy meat.
