Repeat that Dish

15 Mar

How’s your week going so far? Getting used to the Daylight Saving Time yet? For sure I do enjoy my commute in the evening.

Anyway, my eats have been pretty boring..mostly just super simple food, repeat recipes and left overs.

Like this dinner from yesterday:

Steamed broc, fish with caramelized carrots and roasted curried cauliflower (from Nom Nom Paleo recipe)

And I totally love roasted curried cauliflower that I made another batch again…for today’s dinner!

Steamed Chinese veggies, steamed broc, roast masala lamb and roasted curried cauliflower

Roasted Curried Cauliflower (from Nom Nom Paleo)
1 cauliflower head – cut the florets into bite size
Avocado oil
Salt and pepper
Curry powder

1. Cut the cauliflower into small pieces -not too small
2. Liberally season with salt, pepper, curry powder and avocado oil. I didn’t really have exact measurement here, but the rule of thumb is about 1-2 Tbsp avocado oil, 1 tsp of salt, curry powder and pepper
3. Meanwhile preheat your oven 450°F
4. Line your baking sheet with foil (trust me, it’ll make the clean up a breeze!)- arrange the cauliflower florets on the baking sheet
5. Cover the whole thing with another foil – bake for about 15 minutes
6. Remove the cover, set the oven to broil at 450°F for about 5 minutes to brown them a bit

On Sunday I test drive my new oven’s rotisserie feature.

Gotta read the instruction a bit..

The chicken was marinated with salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, thyme and rosemary

Finally after fiddling around, I got the position right, although I need to tie them better next time. When it was rotating, part of the wings and leg flapped around a bit.

I roasted the chicken for 450°F for about 1.5 hour. It turned out yummy! My next mission would be replicating Costco’s Chicken! Yeaah!

Do you eat same thing most of the days?

    I’m very much into simple dishes, and I can eat the same things over and over again, if I ike them! Your dishes look the way that I could live on them for sure! 😀 And wow – a whole roasted chicken is another dish that puts me into awe-mode. 😉

    Would you like to join my Solidarity for Japan project? And cook a Japanese dish, perhaps? There are a lot of Paleo compatible Japanese dishes, like teriyaki chicken or spinach with sesame sauce or Japanese beef stew. 🙂 And sashimi, of course. Doesn’t even need cooking. 😀

        That would be great, thank you so much! And it doesn’t have to be 100 % according to the original recipe, you can of course adjust. Leave the sugar awar, exchange ingredients, add veggies, etc. It just should still be Japanese style in the end. 🙂

    I have a tendency to repeat myself, it’s kind of comforting!

    I definitely eat mostly the same things each day – if it isn’t broken why fix it, right? But truthfully, my food is always a last minute decision so it’s easier to stick with the usual things.

    The cauliflower looks amazing!
