Linseed (Flaxseed) Pizza Base

pizza
This is a paleo friendly, grain free pizza base that turned out surprisingly crunchy. Feel free to experiment with whatever healthy toppings you wish. I put tomato, mushroom, green olives, green beans and a little sprinkling of cheese on mine which was a yummy combo.

If you can’t find ground linseed buy whole linseeds and grind them in a coffee grinder.

Makes 1 large pizza

Base ingredients

1 cup ground linseed (flaxseed)
2 tbsp coconut flour (or 4 tbsp almond meal)
1 clove garlic, minced Continue reading

3/4 cup coconut butter or oil, melted (the butter gives it more of a fudgy consistency)
¾ cup cashews Continue reading

Butter Chicken made with Cauliflower Cream

This is a bit of a healthier spin on the traditional butter chicken recipe. I was surprised at how well the texture turned out and how similar it tasted  to traditional butter chicken. The spices were what made this dish especially tasty, so I would recommend getting a good butter chicken spice mix but make sure the ingredients have no added sugar or preservatives. I used the Herbies Butter Chicken Spice Mix which was made up of paprika, cumin, coriander, turmeric, Continue reading
