Cilantro Egg Salad Sandwich


2014/02/10 by nikkiledford

I’m baaack! I felt like taking a little reprieve from posting after my 30-day blogging marathon.  I’ve got a great recipe for you today! Thank goodness for pinterest and all her crazy paleo food ideas 🙂 I needed a little inspiration to try things outside of my normal cooking routine.

Here’s a lovely little Egg Salad Sandwich to add to your Grain-Free recipe book.

Cilantro Egg Salad

1 large bunch cilantro
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. macadamia nuts
2 cloves garlic
squeeze of lemon
sea salt to taste
black pepper to taste
7 hardboiled eggs
1/2 c. diced celery
1 green onion, diced

  1. In a food processor, blend cilantro, garlic, olive oil, nuts, lemon, sea salt, and pepper until smooth.
  2. Mash eggs with onion, cilantro pesto, and celery. Scoop onto the grain-free roll for an sandwich (also good in lettuce wraps with some fresh tomato


Grain-Free Rolls

1 c. tapioca or potato starch
1/2 c. coconut flour
1 egg
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix dry ingredients.
  3. Whisk together wet ingredients and add to dry.
  4. Mold batter into discs. These rolls will not rise, so make sure to make them the size you want. (I’m going to play with the recipe to see if I can make fluffy, non-coconut flour ones)
  5. Bake for 20 – 30 mins until the edges are golden.
  6. Slice in half for sandwich use.

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
