Yesterday we cooked up a two of my favorite side dishes on#COOKINGWITHAMY. People are always looking for good sides, right? Well, these Broccoli Poppers from @lilsipper + Coconut Cauli Rice from @bewellbykelly can go with chicken or fish or they make a nice little meal by themselves. I personally wrapped them up some @SieteFoods Cassava + Chia tortillas…sprinkled with hemp seeds for added protein…and scarfed ‘em down! The world is your oyster though…eat them however you like…just eat them…because they’re good…and good for you!!!

The full Facebook Live video from yesterday:

Bone Broth Broccoli Poppers

Ingredients:

4 Medjool dates

1/2 cup bone broth

1 Tbsp Organic Sunbutter (ground sunflower seeds)

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp onion or garlic powder

Broccoli florets (no exact measurements—I did 1 head/bunch)

 

Directions:

1. Soak dates in bone broth overnight in fridge.

2. Next day, puree dates (with any extra of the broth that wasn’t absorbed from the dates) with Sunbutter and spices until smooth.

3. Wash broccoli and pat dry with a paper towel. Make sure they’re completely dry

4. Chopped broccoli up and toss it in a bowl or bag with puree to coat.

In an AIR FRYER: 12 minutes at 400° F

Or in the OVEN: bake 30-40 minutes or until crunchy at 400 ° F


NOTES: 

All ingredients should be able to be found in your normal grocery store. Bone broth is usually in refrigerated or freezer section and Organic Sunbutter is found near the other nut and seed butters or you can find on Amazon HERE. 

I don’t soak dates overnight every time, and the flavor is still good!

For broccoli amount, I used the head of broccoli that I got in the veggie section. 


Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Ingredients:

4 cups of cauliflower rice

2 Tbsp coconut oil

2 Tbsp coconut milk or coconut crème

½ tsp pink Himalayan sea salt *

1 Tbsp Coconut Aminos *

1 Tbsp Low-Sodium Gluten-Free Tamari *

 

Directions:

1. In a large sauté pan, add coconut oil, coconut milk (full-fat) and cauliflower.

2. Stir-fry on medium heat until cauliflower is done to your liking, 4-6 minutes.

 

NOTES:

Cauliflower Rice is typically in frozen vegetable section or you can make your own using a food processor and a head of cauliflower.

 *Indicates ingredients that I personally added to Kelly’s recipe that I highly recommend you do! :)

 Coconut Aminos Sauce and Low-Sodium Gluten Free Tamari can both be found near the soy sauce or on the natural aisles or you can order the Aminos on Amazon HERE and the Tamari on Amazon HERE. Both add a soy sauce flavor without putting soy + major sodium in your body. You could get away with just using 2 Tbsps of just 1 of them…but I love the flavor that you get if you mix in both.
