Bullseye “Guaccy” Broccy! GF, V, SCD, BED!

Go Team USA! I was so so happy for the Women’s Gymnastics team last night! I had fun watching it from a sports bar in the Northwoods of Wisconsin! Everyone was getting really into it — oooooing and ohhhhing at every misstep or “stuck” dismount.
Bullseye Guaccy Broccy!
What do you think of NBC tape delaying the events? If you’re on any type of social media, you already know the results before watching — kind of a bummer.
gorgeous golden cauliflower!
So for dinner tonight, I was really craving chips and guacamole. Although, now that I’m on the Specific Carb Diet, which is a grain free diet, chips are a “no-no.” And up North, almond flour is nowhere to be found, making homemade chips out of the question.
yum yum yum!
So what’s the next best thing? — Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower! Tender and Crisp — the perfect vessel for guacamole!
such delicious guacamole!
And it’s Gluten Free, Vegan, Specific Carb Diet (SCD) and Body Ecology Diet friendly!
love me some broccoli!
And super delicious to boot:)
Here’s what you need: (Serves 2)
1 large head of broccoli, broken into florets
1/2 head of cauliflower, broken into florets
1 avocado, mashed
1 Tbsp red onion, finely minced
1 garlic clove, grated
1-2 Tbsp Cilantro, chopped
squeeze of lime
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place florets on an olive-oil-sprayed baking sheet. Spritz the florets with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 20 minutes, flipping half way through.
Meanwhile, make your guacamole. Combine all your ingredients in a bowl and mash your avocado with the back of a fork. Mash until you get desired consistency.
what a plate!
To assemble, make a large circle of the broccoli florets. Then, place and inner circle of the cauliflower florets. Dollop about 2 Tbsp of guacamole in the center of your “bullseye” and garnish with chopped cilantro.
sittin’ pretty:)
This meal was so fabulous! It really hit the spot, and I didn’t even miss tortilla chips! When cauliflower is roasted, it becomes wonderfully golden and nutty flavored – pairing perfectly with the guacamole.
tender-crisp veggies!
And then the guacamole. My, Oh My was this ever fantastic! I think avocado may be one of my top 3 favorite foods. Hands down. No competition. I love how guacamole is so buttery and creamy, with a brightness from the lime, freshness from the cilantro, and an overall warmth from the garlic. It is truly magnificent.
gluten free, vegan, SCD, BED!
This meal was a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds!
What’s been your favorite event so far? And who are you rooting for?!? (I know there are some Canadians and Australians in the house!) :)
Until tomorrow!!
Need an olive oil mister? Here's the one I use and LOVE:
