Cabbage Hash

I reinvented my Coconut Apple Cabbage recipe last night, and ended up with a great cabbage hash, that’s super flavorful and very easy to make.

Cabbage Hash

  • 1 bag shredded cabbage
  • 1 white onion
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • 2 apples
  • Kosher salt/pepp

Melt coconut oil in the pan, and add the loosely chopped white onion and garlic cloves. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Just as the onions are starting to become transparent, add the bag of cabbage and continue sautéing. Last, add the diced apples, and continue to sauté until they’re slightly soft, but not mushy.

I originally wouldn’t have thought of it as a “hash” per say, but I wanted eggs, and next to the eggs it really was like a (non-starchy) hash! You could easily add bacon, or any other kind of meat 🙂photo 1 (12)

Mushroom Tomato Brussels Hash

If there’s one thing I love, for breakfast, lunch (great leftovers), or dinner, it’s a quick vegetable hash. The opportunities are endless, and they’re easy. It’s a great way to get a filling, healthy meal all-in-one.

Mushroom Tomato Brussels Hash

  • 1 bag shredded Brussels sprouts
  • 6 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 package white mushrooms
  • Kosher salt/pepp
  • Garlic powder
  • Chili flakes

I began by cooking the chopped bacon in the pan, and then added the onion. I seasoned with kosher salt/pepp, garlic powder and chili flakes, and let the onion cook until it started to become transparent. I added the entire bag of shredded Brussels sprouts, and continued tossing until they started to cook down. I added the mushrooms, and let them cook until they were no longer firm. Last, I added the halved cherry tomatoes, and continued gently tossing until the tomatoes were warm. Nom!photo 1 (2) photo 2 (2)

I enjoyed it with a fresh avocado and some fresh berries 🙂photo

Orange Bacon Brussels Sprout Hash

Yes, make this asap, because it’s pretty (that’s not really why). I don’t often blog immediately after I create a recipe, because, well, I’m eating or living life or sleeping-but it’s Friday so yay, I can stay up late! I’m so old.

Super stressful, busy week here, and I have about 50 kajillion things I want to blog about, but don’t have the time-sleep is valuable for helping my brain function, or repair. Therefore, I came home tonight, poured myself a glass of red wine, started bacon cooking, had a bite of Theo Chocolate, then starting cooking. In that order.

Orange Bacon Brussels Sprout Hash

  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 TBSP Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil
  • 1 bag shredded Brussels sprouts (TJ’s)
  • 1 medium orange (zest, juice, and flesh!)
  • 1/2 package cooked bacon, cut into chunks
  • 3 eggs, over-easy
  • Kosher salt/pepp
  • Garlic powder

I began by sautéing the onion in the coconut oil over medium heat, seasoning with kosher salt/pepp/garlic powder. Then I turned the heat down to low and added the entire bag of shredded sprouts, sautéing until cooked, but still crisp. I added the juice of the orange and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. Then I cut the bacon into pieces right into the pan, added the orange zest, and scraped the flesh pieces of the orange out of each orange 1/2. I let everything heat throughout.

Then I ate it with some over-easy eggs. What what.

Orange happens to be one of my favorite flavors, of all time. It is exceptional with salty, veggie, sweet, chocolate, etc. flavors. Enjoy!DSC_0910DSC_0919DSC_0922

Poached Egg…salad?

I’ve done a lot with eggs, but I’ve never topped a salad with one! The inspiration came from a newer restaurant here in San Diego, 100 Wines, from the Cohn Family Restaurant Group (one of our favorites), view the amazing menu here: 100 Wines Menu. They’re very accommodating with gluten-free, grain-free, etc. and willingly substitute breads/pita for crisp vegetables, or will remove ingredients you can’t eat, etc.

I met a girlfriend for dinner there and I enjoyed the Mixed Greens salad: poached egg, crispy pork belly, ciabatta crouton, piquillo, peppers, ginger apple dressing-sans the ciabatta crouton of course 🙂 It was fabulous! I can’t believe how awesome the yolk was mixed in with the salad. I told Seth about it, and he made this one night recently!

Burger Egg Salad

  • Burger patties, of your choice
  • Bacon
  • Over-easy or poached egg
  • Salad, of your choice

You can use any burger patties you choose, seasoned however you want, and same goes for the salad and it’s ingredients-be creative. Make the salad, top with burger, bacon and poached eggs. Mix altogether-the key is a little runny yolk, it flavors the salad so well!DSC_0226DSC_0229

Coconut Sauteed Artichoke Hearts

I completely ran out of fresh vegetables toward the end of last week, so this quick dish was inspired by what I did have, a can of artichoke hearts! I love artichoke hearts, but rarely eat them as I’m not a fan of anything canned, and I can’t seem to find ANY that don’t have some sort of nitrate or preservative (if you have found them, please let me know!!).

Coconut sautéed Artichoke Hearts

I simply dropped a dollop of coconut oil in the sauté pan, then took each artichoke heart into my hand and squeezed it over the sink to eliminate the excess water, then dropped in the pan. I really think they’re best mashed up in your hand like this, as they don’t have to remain intact to taste good and then your sauté doesn’t get too watery. I let mine get a little toasty or caramelized, and they are SO GOOD! Last, I seasoned with kosher salt/pepp.DSC_0198

This would be a very easy and different side dish to any meal, and they really take on the texture and look of scrambled eggs.
