Fried Cauliflower Rice with Pork and Scallops

Yum

 


One of our favorite networks to watch on TV is the Food Network Channel. From Chopped, to Worst Cooks in America, to Beat Bobby Flay, and now Amy Schumer Learns to Cook (with her husband, Chris Fischer, who is a chef). We love everything about this show! The comedy, the recipes, the cocktails, and how they beautifully display each recipe on a piece of cardboard at the beginning. HA! 

This recipe is courtesy of Chris Fischer and Amy Schumer! The only thing I did differently was used cauliflower rice instead of white rice. Fantastic! I plan to make more of their recipes real soon!

Ingredients:

- 1/2 cup ground pork or sausage

- salt to taste

- 1 bunch scallions, diced (I used two green onions - white and green parts)

- 2 Tbs olive oil

- 1/4 pound fresh scallops, chopped

- 2 cups riced cauliflower

- 2 eggs

- 1 Tbs soy sauce

- 1 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground pork and season with a little salt. Cook until pork is no longer pink (about 5 minutes). Add the scallions and olive oil and cook for a minute. Add the scallops, toss well, and cook for 90 seconds. Add the rice. Crack the eggs over the rice. Increase the heat to high and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat, drizzle with soy sauce, stir in cilantro, and serve. Enjoy!

Fennel and Celery Salad with Parmesan

Yum

One of our favorite networks to watch on TV is the Food Network Channel. From Chopped, to Worst Cooks in America, to Beat Bobby Flay, and now Amy Schumer Learns to Cook (with her husband, Chris Fischer, who is a chef). We love everything about this show! The comedy, the recipes, the cocktails, and how they beautifully display each recipe on a piece of cardboard at the beginning. HA! 

This recipe is courtesy of Chris Fischer and Amy Schumer! I plan to make more of their recipes real soon! Next up... Fried Rice with Pork and Scallops! Yummo! 

Ingredients:

- 1 fennel bulb, very thinly sliced

- 5 celery stalks, very thinly sliced

- 1 Tbs lemon juice

- 2 Tbs olive oil (we used 3 and that was perfect)

- kosher salt (or your favorite seasonings)

- 3 Tbs grated parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients and enjoy! Isn't that easy? I believe they added the cheese after they put the fennel/celery mixture on individual plates. Mixed right in works too. Also, in the same lazy manner, instead of taking awhile to thinly slice the fennel bulb and celery, I chopped them roughly and then used my Pampered Chef food chopper to finish the job. Worked great!

Cheesy Tuna Melts with Artichokes

Yum

Ok, the picture might not do these tuna melts justice, but believe me... these are fantastic! A slightly different twist on a regular tuna melt, these melts, brightened with the flavor of lemon and artichokes, are good for any time of the day!

Ingredients:

- 1, 12 oz. can light water-packed tuna, drained
- 2/3 cup coarsely chopped water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend), divided
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
- Juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon
- Sourdough bread, English muffins, or bread of choice

Toast bread or English muffins. While bread is toasting, combine tuna, artichokes, mayo, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese, pepper, oregano, and lemon juice. Spread on toast and sprinkle with more shredded cheese. Put under a broiler until cheese is melted. Or if you have a toaster oven, place back in toaster until cheese is completed melted. Enjoy!
