Macadamia Nut Sour Cream

Macadamia Not Sour Cream
Macadamia Nut Sour Cream

Macadamia Nut Sour Cream is an awesome replacement for dairy sour cream.  I am sharing a recipe I really liked when I was vegan for one year. During that year, I experimented with many cashew recipes including a cashew sour cream. When I found out that cashews have too many lectins, I changed the cashews for macadamia nuts and created this recipe. Now my family and I use this sour cream wherever sour cream is called for, like on tacos, burritos, stroganoff, even on Instant Pot Pinto Beans.

Ingredients for Macadamia Nut Sour Cream

  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 + 1/3 cup water (divided)
  • 2 TBLS fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions for Macadamia Nut Sour Cream

  1. Cover macadamia nuts with water and soak for 4 – 6 hours. Then drain and rinse the nuts with fresh water.

  2. Transfer the nuts into a high speed blender with 1/2 cup water, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and salt. Using the puree or liquefy setting on your blender, blend until you get your desired smoothness. I had to add an addition 1/3 cup water to get the sour cream as creamy and smooth as dairy sour cream. Next use in your favorite recipe!

Sugar Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

These beautiful Sugar Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies taste as good as they look! I had a lot of fun making them. I love to bake and being Danish, it’s important to me that they taste good but they also need to be sugar free with no lectins! Chocolate chip cookies are my family’s favorite cookies so I modified a recipe from www.kitchentreaty.com to be lectin free! I used Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup instead of pure maple syrup and I used Lily’s Dark Chocolate Stevia Sweetened Premium Baking Chips for the semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Ingredients for Sugar Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 4 Tbls solid coconut oil
  • 6 Tbls Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup
  • 2 large pastured raised eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 cups Bob’s Red Mill almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine-grain sea salt
  • 1 cup Lily’s Dark Chocolate Stevia Sweetened Premium Baking Chips + more for topping if desired

Instructions for Sugar Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper so it’s an easy cleanup.
  2. Add the coconut oil and the Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup to a large bowl. Whisk it briskly until combined. Then add the egg and vanilla. Continue to whisk until blended!
  3. In another bowl, mix the almond flour, baking soda and salt. Then add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and blend together. Next add in the Lily’s dark chocolate chips.
  4. With a medium ice cream scoop, scoop out the dough onto the parchment lined baking sheets, about two inches apart. Then press each cookie down gently with your finger tips.
  5. Next bake until the cookies are set and the edges are lightly browned, 8-9 minutes. Then cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet and finally transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tuna, Avocado & Celery Salad
Tuna, Avocado & Celery Salad

This Avocado, Tuna & Celery salad was a huge hit with my family. In the dog days of summer, I needed a recipe that wouldn’t heat up the house. On the Plant Paradox program, I also wanted a recipe that didn’t contain any lectins. I adapted this recipe from Natasha’s Kitchen, Avocado Tuna Salad Recipe at natashaskitchen.com.

Since we do not eat cucumbers, I made my salad with celery which gave it the crunchiness of the cucumbers. Also, I didn’t have any cilantro, so I just left out the herb.

Ingredients for Avocado, Tuna & Celery Salad

  • 30 oz tuna in water, not drained and flaked (Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna with Sea Salt) 6 small cans

Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese & Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast
Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese & Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast

Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese & Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast was a huge hit with my family including my Dad and my brother. The chicken was tender and the asparagus cooked perfectly. We all enjoyed this very much. The original recipe is from Tiffany at www.lecremedelacrumb.com/asparagus-stuffed-chicken. I also modified the recipe a bit and made Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese & Asparagus stuffed portobello mushrooms for my vegan son. He ate 3 portobello mushrooms, he liked it so much! That recipe will be coming soon.

Ingredients for Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese & Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbls. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp. dried Italian blend seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 cup macadamia nut mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2/3 cup macadamia nut Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbls. olive oil or ghee
  • 1 dropper of SweetLeaf Stevia drops
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced thinly

Instructions for Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese & Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up!
  2. Next, using a sharp knife, slice each chicken breast horizontally to form a pocket. Be sure not to slice all the way through, but leave a 1/2 inch for the fold.

This recipe was adapted from www.minimalistbaker.com/how-to-make-vegan-parmesan-cheese but I changed the nuts from cashews to macadamia nuts and added onion powder. My family and I really like it in asparagus & cheese stuffed chicken breasts and in scrambled eggs with chopped broccoli florets. You can use it anytime you would normally use Parmesan cheese.

Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese

Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese
Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese

Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese has been my solution to milk allergies. These allergies  have caused me to have asthma symptoms such as shortness of breath and chest pain. So I gave up milk while eating vegan and my symptoms went away. Because a lot of the recipes I use require cheese, I have been making nut cheeses for awhile now. I used cashews as the primary nut. I recently found out that cashews are not nuts but actually legumes. On the Plant Paradox eating plan, legumes need to be cooked in a pressure cooker. So I decided to use macadamia nuts rather than cashews as my nut of choice for cheese. Because I wanted to make a chicken dish that required mozzarella cheese I created this recipe for macadamia nut mozzarella cheese.

Ingredients For Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese

  • 3/4 cup macadamia nuts
  • 3/4 cup plain almond milk (not vanilla) or vegetable broth
  • 3 tbls lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbls nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbls onion powder
  • 1 3/4 cups water – divided
  • 2 TBLS + 1 1/4 tsp. agar powder

Instructions For Macadamia Nut Mozzarella Cheese

  1. Boil macadamia nuts for 10 minutes in a cup of water then strain away the excess.
  2. Put the nuts in the blender with the remaining ingredients, except 1 1/4 cups water and agar powder.
  3. Blend until it is completely smooth and creamy.
  4. Place remaining 1 1/4 cup water into saucepan and heat the water. Add the agar and heat until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute.
  5. Transfer the agar mixture into the blender. Blend until smooth.
  6. Pour mixture into an oiled container. Then cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.

Garlic Mayonnaise Sweet Potato Salad

Garlic Mayonnaise Sweet Potato Salad
Garlic Mayonnaise Sweet Potato Salad

With Barbecue season upon us, you have to have some kind of a potato-ey mayonnaise-y salad. So I made a Garlic Mayonnaise Sweet Potato Salad which was a huge hit for our last barbecue. It’s made with sweet potatoes instead of russet potatoes and Garlic Mayonnaise instead of regular mayonnaise. The Garlic Mayonnaise is homemade and lectin free! I made it the way I usually make potato salad in the past, with eggs and black olives. Instead of sweet pickles, I roasted red bell peppers, skinned them and took the seeds out of them so they were also lectin free. This replaced the sweetness of the pickles.

Ingredients for Garlic Mayonnaise Sweet Potato Salad

  • 3 pounds white sweet potato, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 large red onion, finely diced
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Garlic Mayonnaise
  • 6 eggs, hard boiled, peeled and diced**
  • 1 can black olives, diced
  • 2 roasted red bell peppers, with skin and seeds removed, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • paprika

** To boil the eggs, place in cold water and bring them to a boil. Time the boil for 1 minute. Then turn off the heat, cover them and let them sit in the water for 10 minutes. Drain the hot water, and cover them again with cold water. This makes perfect boiled eggs that peel easily!

Instructions for Garlic Mayonnaise Sweet Potato Salad

  • The first step is to peel and finely dice the sweet potatoes. Add them to a large pot of water with 1 teaspoon of salt. It takes about 9 minutes to get them tender, but not mushy.

LRG_DSC01760

  • While the potatoes are cooking, roast the red peppers that have been seeded and cut in half in a 400 degree oven until the skins blacken.

LRG_DSC01763

  • Gently peel the skins off of the red bell peppers. Then dice them.
  • Drain the sweet potatoes and rinse with cool water.
  • While the sweet potatoes are cooling, cut up the boiled eggs, red onions, celery and the black olives.

LRG_DSC01765

  • Add the cooled sweet potatoes and mix together.

LRG_DSC01767

  • Once that is combined, add the Garlic Mayonnaise, salt, pepper and paprika. Mix well until everything is coated with the Garlic Mayonnaise.
  • Sprinkle with paprika. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Lectin Free Garlic Mayonnaise

Since I am on a condiment kick right now, my son, Paul and I created a Lectin Free Garlic Mayonnaise using avocado oil and olive oil. I used the garlic mayonnaise in a Sweet Potato Salad and it was a big hit with my family. It was also awesome on the Barbecued Hamburgers with the Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce we had on the 4th of July! The recipe for the Sweet Potato Salad will be coming soon!

Ingredients for Lectin Free Garlic Mayonnaise

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 Tablespoons Champagne Vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup avocado oil

Instructions for Lectin Free Garlic Mayonnaise

  1. Whip the eggs yolks with a whisk.
  2. Add the Champagne Vinegar, salt, garlic and pepper. Whisk together.
  3. Slowing drizzle the oils while whisking briskly. This takes a long time because you do not want it to separate and whisking briskly makes the Lectin Free Mayonnaise really thick. If you pour too much oil in at a time, the mayonnaise will not thicken. If you do not whisk it enough it will not thicken. So be prepared for your arm to get tired!

Creating your own condiments is fun and making sure they are lectin free is important to me. I am continuing to lose weight by following this plan and walking my dog. The walk is good for both of us!

Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce

Plant Paradox Approved Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce
Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce

This recipe for barbecue sauce was handed down to me from my Mother-In-Law, Esther. She was a wonderful cook. She taught me how to cook like her. We spent many evening and weekend meals together and I gleaned as much as I could from her. She was the type of cook who never measured. She would pour the spices into the palm of her hand and then into the pot. So my sister-in-laws would make her stop and measure the spices after she poured them into her hand. Then they would write down the recipe!

I adapted Esther’s original recipe for Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce by making a Sugar-Free Tomato Ketchup and Sugar-Free Worcestershire Sauce. I also exchanged the vegetable oil for olive oil and the margarine for grass-fed butter. This sauce is excellent on hamburgers and chicken.

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did!

Ingredients for Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce

Instructions for Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and melt the butter. You will need to use a wisk to combine all of the ingredients. It will separate as it sits, so give it a stir and it will be ready to use.

We used it on hamburgers. To barbecue, first brown one side of the meat, flip it over and brush it with barbecue sauce. When the other side is cooked flip the burger over again and brush the second side with barbecue sauce. Then flip once more and let the second side sit for a minute. They were delicious!
