Perhaps the thought has crossed your mind that you’d like food ideas. Transitioning from a normal American diet to the wholeTEN described diet is not easy. We intend to help.

These recipes were created in a normal kitchen by a normal human being with a normal daily workload. They are delicious and easy and everyone who ate them were filled with glee.

Chicken Skewers with Sunshine Sauce served with Cauliflower Pilaf

Chicken Skewers

1 T honey
2 T Aminos (soy sauce substitute)
2 garlic cloves or 1 tsp minced garlic
2 T Olive Oil
4 boneless chicken breasts cut into strips (not too thin.  ≈3 strips per breast)
Bell Peppers, cut into chunks

Combine the first 5 ingredients and mix well.  Place chicken breasts strips in a pan and drizzle the marinade over them.  The longer they can marinade the better. One hour minimum.

Weave your chicken onto the skewers alternating peppers.  Two strips per skewer.  Then, grill.

Topped the chicken off with Sunshine Sauce (substitute almond butter instead of sun butter).  Sunshine sauce is delicious!  (editor’s recommendation: make at least a double batch of the sauce and use the remaining sauce in spaghetti squash for a pseudo pad thai)

Sundried Tomato Cauliflower Pilaf

1 Head Cauliflower
¾ cup chicken broth
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup packed chopped (in a mini food processor) sundried tomatoes
¼ cup chopped green onions
3 garlic cloves
½ cup cashews
salt and pepper to taste

Cut the cauliflower florets plus some stem off and food process them into “rice”.  If your florets are too large you may need to do two batches.  Put the rice in a bowl and pour the chicken broth over the rice.  Let it set for at least 30 minutes.  Pour the coconut oil into a large pot.  Once the oil has heated, toss in the onions and garlic and let them cook for a couple of minutes before adding the sundried tomatoes and cashews.  Cook for a couple of more minutes stirring and then add the rice and chicken broth mixture, salt and pepper.  The rice will have soaked up the broth by now.  Stir all ingredients together on medium heat for 5 minutes.  Turn the heat down to low and cover the pan for an additional 10 minutes…stirring occasionally.

The last salad dressing you’ll ever need

1/4 cup Tahini (ground sesame seeds, found in Mediterranean markets and fancy grocery stores)
3/4 cup Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 garlic clove, minced

Combine all 5 ingredients in a tightly sealed container. Shake it. This is well suited for any salad, especially those with piles of vegetables on top.
