My cousin Charles, also known as “The Poor Chef” goes by the motto “Eat cheap, but eat well.” He is also working to bring much-needed awareness to the Diabetes disease. Because I am so proud of him and everything he is doing, I wanted to share a favorite recipe of his, Cauliflower and Spinach Balls. Share your photos on Facebook if you decide to make them.
1 head of cauliflower — remove outer stems
1 cup chopped spinach
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 sprigs scallion/green onion diced
2 sprigs garlic diced
1/2 cup bell peppers diced (red/yellow)
Sea salt – pinch
1/2 cup quinoa
1/4 cup grape seed oil
1 egg white
Sauté cilantro, scallion, garlic, bell peppers, spinach with 1/2 grape seed oil. Use blender or food processor to finely chop cauliflower. Combine cauliflower and egg with sauté mixture and form into balls. Roll balls into quinoa flakes and place in baking dish.
Sprinkle remaining oil and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes
