We’re heading out to the west Yukon River for a week, so the blog will be quiet for a bit (now that I've gotten into a bit of a routine with it!) Before I go, though, I have another delicious meal for you.
One of my very favorite food blogs is MinimalistBaker.com – check it out, her food is AH-MAZ-ING and easy! A recent post of hers that landed in my inbox was this Spicy Korean Cauliflower Wing recipe. That one didn’t take long to make it to the table! But I had to reformulate the gochujang sauce recipe into something that I can eat. At that point, it probably wasn’t even recognizable as gochujang, but it was GOOD. The whole recipe was amazing, in fact, and my family is begging to have it again!
The sauce in the recipe was obviously going to be quite spicy, which is not up the alley of everyone in my family, so I backed off on the red pepper and used chili powder. The result is a fairly sweet sauce with a nice umami background and a bit of a kick.
I kept the rest of my red pepper sauce in the root cellar, with the intention of making the following recipe. When we were staying with our friends in CA over Thanksgiving, I found that the easiest way for me to eat was to store pre-cooked vegetables and meat in the fridge, mix them into various servings, and cover it with avocados and amazing sauces. (When I start my AIP diet, I plan to use a variation of this technique, and I’ll share that with you once I implement it.)
This sauce, is indeed amazing.
We had some leftover REALLY GOOD moose round roast that I used for this, but you could use any meat you choose. Just make sure it’s tasty. Or omit meat entirely for a vegan meal.
This recipe is paleo as-is, but to turn it into AIP, substitute a different sauce. That’s something I’ll be working on in the fairly near future, so keep your eyes on the inbox! (Actually, don’t, that’s bad for your eyes and brain and basically all of your body.)
It also makes a really good, easy lunch to pack. I steamed a whole sweet potato and all our leftover broccoli for this, and of course you have your half avocado. It’s as good cold as it is hot, so you don’t even have to corrupt it with microwaves!
If you have a family who tries to steal your limited-diet food on a regular basis like mine does, you may want to make extras of this recipe. I had to fight hard to keep this one to myself!
1. Steam sweet potatoes and broccoli for 10 minutes.
2. While vegetables are steaming, add all sauce ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
3. Place steamed vegetables into bowl. Slice avocado and add to bowl. Add meat, then place sauce on top.
I grew up eating my Mom's amazing gourmet cooking. And then something happened. Almost two years ago, I became very sick. After lots of testing, the types of food I could eat became very, very limited. My mission now is to try to make good, affordable, easy, allergy-friendly food! All of my recipes, therefore, will be gluten free, dairy free, bean free, egg free, and cane sugar free. Most of my recipes will be paleo, Whole30, and/or keto friendly.
