Coconut Cauliflower Soup

Made Tom Yam kind of soup with homemade coconut milk. That gave me idea that cauliflower in coconut taste very good.

So ppl doing keto can make keto soup with cauliflower. I made paste first with lemon grass. Garlic , ginger , little red onion , cilantro stalks and red chili. To give it nice red color I added Korean chili powder .

Fry paste in coconut oil for a minute and then add water. Let it boil , add salt.

Add fresh cauliflower florets , mushroom , broccoli, squash whatever veggies you like and let veggies cook. If you can find long mushrooms, they r good for soup.

Add coconut milk , simmer for few minutes.

I added bean sprouts and noodles to it .

Garnish with cilantro , green onion. Squeeze some lemon /lime juice.

Just play with what you have and coconut milk make soup tasty.


Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bar

Fall is all abt pumpkin, isn’t it ? Well , may be not. Pumpkin bars using coconut flour turned out good. Found recipe on YouTube and I think channel was clean and delicious or something like that.

Cooking with good ingredients is good. I used organic coconut flour and organic maple syrup. Recipe is so simple :

1 can 15oz pumpkin purée. Nothing added to it .

3/4th cup coconut flour, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 2 eggs , 1/4 cup almond milk (I used regular milk), pumpkin spice, cinnamon powder , pinch of salt. And 1/2 tsp baking powder.

Mix everything together. Add some chocolate cups and nuts .

Bake at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 40-45 minutes.

They were mildly sweet so I topped it with little maple syrup while eating .


Gluten Free Kodo Millet

In india , we use lot of wheat flour and eat roti, Paratha everyday. Growing up, always heard old ppl wanting to eat jowar millet roti since it’s easy to digest and they tried to get away from wheat. This was before we all learn abt gluten.

Kodo millet is available in india , Indian stores easily. Made with vegetables and added some biryani powder . Instant pot cooked in 7 minutes.

Are you including millet in your diet ? Or waiting for doctor to tell you ?


Boiled Edamame

First time I made it at home. Every time I think of making at home and go to store, I forget to buy or if I remember that store won’t have it.

Last weekend my friend brought on hike and it got my attention again. Today I made special visit to Walmart just to buy this. It’s available frozen here .

Added to instant pot with some water and Himalayan pink salt. Boiled for 4 mins and I let pressure release naturally. They came out nice soft . Adjust boiling time as per your liking .

Drain. Sprinkle some salt , fresh lemon or lime juice . Lemon juice is for my Indian taste bud.

Tasted so good and creamy.

Makes a good snack , appetizer.
