Seared Scallops with Zucchini, King Oyster Mushroom, and Summer Squash Spaghetti with Shaved Garlic and White Truffle Emulsion

Last week I cerebrated my birthday with good friends, awesome readers, and some amazing paleo-friendly food at Tempo Kitchen & Cocktails. I love that Tempo uses local ingredients and I LOVE that they offer most of their menu gluten-free, so it was a pleasure collaborating with them on this special evening!

If you follow me on social media, you may have seen me sharing details of this event throughout the past month. I worked with the chefs at Tempo and we created a wonderful 6-course dinner. The night was so wonderful and I can’t wait to host more dinners soon!

A bunch of readers and friends who attended the dinner requested a recipe from the night. I took a little poll and the scallop dish won. So I am SUPER excited to share it with you today.


Here’s a sneak peek of the dinner, course-by-course!

  • 1 lb. fresh scallops

  • 1 cup Arugula
  • 3 tablespoons toasted almonds
  • 2 cups dried shitake mushrooms
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon truffle oil


  • Clean the small abductor muscle off the bottom of the scallops.

  • Shave the king oyster mushrooms on the mandolin (if king oyster mushrooms are not available substitute white button, or cremini mushrooms)
