The Ultimate Paleo Sandwich Rolls [VIDEO]

I’ve been thinking about bringing paleo-friendly bread and rolls to LCK for some time now. But I knew before I did that I needed to make sure they fit specific criteria. They need the right flavor and fluffy, soft, air-y, bread-like texture. You see, I’ve never bothered buying gluten-free breads in the store. I never thought it was worth it because I always felt they were dense, not the right flavor, etc.

Paleo Sandwich Rolls

My ‘Everything Bagel’ Cauliflower Rolls are a huge hit around the web. But let’s be real, just like cauliflower pizza crusts, they are still cauliflower. They can’t really taste like pizza (or bread). So I bring you: The Ultimate Paleo Sandwich Rolls. Trust me.

  2. I use round molds or mason jar lids, and it yields 4 fluffy sandwich rolls. See the comments for how readers have adapted!
  3. Updated 2/2017. I used to add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or palm shortening but don't find it necessary for the texture so it has been removed.

Sriracha Lime Chicken Chopped Salad

It is so hot here in Boston, and that’s coming from the girl who was just visiting Florida in June. Wheeeew, hot. In leu, turning on the stove the past two nights wasn’t quite in the cards. The grill was though, paired with this  Sriracha Lime Chicken Chopped Salad that is just bursting with flavor.

 

Let’s see what we got: spicy and bold chicken, sweet and juicy grilled pineapple, refreshing crisp local lettuce, local tomatoes, and finally, avocado. Count me in any day of the week. Oh, and don’t forget the light and easy lime vinaigrette.

Maple Glazed Salmon

I am so excited to share this Maple Glazed Salmon recipe. It is hands down one of my new favorite ways to prepare salmon. I love the layer of goodness it coats on the top of the fish, and the flavor it brings.

 Maple Glazed Salmon

A few months back  we ate dinner at Mike’s parent’s house. His mom made a delicious salmon dish, and she mentioned it using brown sugar and maple syrup, and having a rub on it. Brilliant. I instantly knew it needed some adaptation!

So. Good.
