What You’ll Need To Make This Niçoise Salad

Dijon Mustard – This French mustard works perfectly in this French recipe! Two tablespoons of tangy, slightly spicy Dijon mustard gives our dressing loads of delicious flavor. If you don’t have Dijon mustard, you can use spicy brown mustard or 1 teaspoon of ground mustard seed in its place.

Olive Oil – Plenty, and I mean plenty of olive oil is essential to a smooth and creamy vinaigrette! I like having two different kinds of olive oil in my kitchen – one cheaper, less flavorful kind, and one higher quality kind. The higher quality olive oil is exactly what I’d reach for in this, or any, salad dressing recipe. Whereas the cheaper, less flavorful olive oil is perfect for cooking, since much of its flavor will get cooked off anyway!

Baby Potatoes – These creamy, adorable potatoes are traditional to all Niçoise salads recipes. Either red or yellow baby potatoes will work here (I used a combination of both). To prep them for this dish, give them a good scrub under cold water then slice each one in half. Once prepped, quickly boil the baby potatoes until fork tender, then coat in dressing and add to your salad!

Lettuce – Really any kind of lettuce would work in this salad! Boston or butter lettuce taste both fresh and crisp, and are the perfect base to this hearty salad. However, I’ve swapped out the lettuce for arugula, baby spinach, and romaine – all were delicious!

Eggs – Hard boiled eggs, soft boiled eggs, or anywhere in between! There are a ton of boiled egg how-tos out there on the internet, in case you need some guidance. I followed this jammy egg recipe and my boiled eggs turned out PERFECT.

Tuna – It’s not a Niçoise salad without some flaked tuna! Similar to the olive oil in this salad recipe, we want to use good quality tuna as well. Also, look for solid canned tuna, as opposed to chunk light tuna. And for an even richer, more flavorful tuna, use tuna packed in oil – it’s extra buttery and delicious!

Tips and Tricks

  • When making the Niçoise salad dressing, *slowly* pour in the olive oil, while whisking. Doing this will help to emulsify the oil into the dressing, creating a smooth and well-combined vinaigrette. And take your time here, because rushing this step could cause the dressing to separate.
  • Boil the fresh green beans for no more than a few minutes! Green beans cook quickly, and can overcook even quicker. Therefore, to ensure they maintain their crisp-ness, boil them for no more than 3 minutes, then immediately transfer to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking!
  • Add this Niçoise salad into your weekly meal prep! To do this, simply chop and prep all salad ingredients, then whisk together the dressing. Divide and assemble your salads into four separate containers, and store the dressing on the side – then, when ready to eat, dress your salads and enjoy!

A classic French Niçoise salad, fully loaded with all things fresh and delicious! Bursting with seasonal spring veggies such as crisp green beans, baby potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and capers. This hearty Niçoise salad is then finished off with a tangy and herby dijon vinaigrette.

Ingredients

  • For the dressing:
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 3/4 cup olive oil

  • For the salad:
  • 1 pound baby potatoes, sliced in half

  • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed

  • 1 head Boston lettuce or butter lettuce, chopped

  • 2 (5-ounce) cans tuna, drained (see Notes)

  • 4 eggs, boiled

  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 5-6 radishes, ends trimmed and cut in half

  • 1/4 cup mixed olives

  • 2 tablespoons capers

Directions

  • Make the dressing my whisking together all ingredients except olive oil. Once combined, slowly pour in olive oil while whisking to emulsify oil and create a smooth dressing.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then add in the sliced potatoes along with a pinch of salt. Cook potatoes until fork tender, about 10 minutes, then drain from water. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl and toss in ¼ cup of dressing.
  • Bring another large pot of water to a boil, then add in trimmed green beans. Cook green beans until tender, about 2-3 minutes, then transfer to an ice bath to stop the cooking. Once cool, remove green beans from ice bath.
  • Assemble all salad ingredients on a large platter – cooked potatoes, green beans, lettuce, tuna, boiled eggs, red onion, tomatoes, radishes, mixed olives, and capers. Drizzle some dressing over salad and serve with extra dressing on the side.

Notes

  • Tuna: Canned tuna packed in oil is ideal here, since it’s moist and has more flavor. However, if all you have is canned tuna packed in water then that works too!

Extra crunchy, perfectly sweet gluten-free chocolate chip cookie brittle! Made with almond flour and sweetened with coconut sugar for a healthier treat. This paleo dessert recipe requires just one bowl and 30 minutes to make!

What You’ll Need To Make Gluten-Free Cookie Brittle

Oil – Any neutral tasting oil will work in this recipe. I’ve made this recipe with both avocado oil and melted refined coconut oil. Avocado oil yields no flavor, while coconut oil yields a slight coconut flavor. Though both baked up perfectly crispy, so use whatever you’d like.

Egg Whites – By leaving out the egg yolks, we get an even crispier cookie brittle. For help figuring out how to separate egg whites from the yolk, I recommend following this tutorial. And don’t throw out your egg yolks! They’re deeply nutritious, so save them for your morning scramble.

Almond Flour – Almond flour works flawlessly in our cookie brittle batter. Also, in using almond flour in place of any other flour, we keep this dessert recipe grain-free and paleo-friendly.

Chocolate Chips – For a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie brittle, you’re gonna need plenty of chocolate chips. However, you can totally replace the chocolate chips in this recipe with anything you’d like. I’ve made a birthday cake cookie brittle using this recipe, by swapping out the chocolate chips for one cup of rainbow sprinkles – so fun and delicious!

Tips and Tricks

  • After 10 minutes of baking, you’ll want to remove your brittle from the oven to gently slice it. For easy slicing, I recommend using a pizza cutter and rolling it through the brittle in all different directions! Though if you don’t have a pizza cutter, use a sharp knife instead.
  • You must let this gluten-free chocolate chip cookie brittle cool completely before eating! If not, it won’t get nearly as crispy. Therefore, transfer your brittle pieces to a wire cooling rack for at least 30 minutes before eating, serving, and/or storing.
  • While not necessary, I recommend storing leftover brittle in an airtight container in your fridge! This will ensure the pieces stay crispy, and the chocolate doesn’t melt.

Adjust This Recipe To Your Dietary Needs

Make it Vegan: While I haven’t tried this variation myself yet, you might be able to get away with substituting the egg whites for two flax eggs. To make one flax egg, combine one tablespoon of ground flax meal with three tablespoons of water, whisk together then let it sit for 10 minutes, until the mixture thickens. Once thick, add in the flax eggs just as you would the egg whites. If you take this option, please let me know how it turns out!

Make it Paleo: Surprise! This dessert recipe is already paleo. Though to ensure it remains paleo, use your favorite refined sugar-free chocolate chips.

These hummingbird cupcakes are the perfect spring-time sweet treat! They’re grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free, topped off with a delicious cream cheese frosting.

It’s funny because I’m literally eating a hummingbird cupcake (and getting cream cheese frosting all over my keyboard) as I write this. I’m full-on addicted to the babies. They’re sweet, but not too sweet. Incredibly versatile – enjoy them as a snack, dessert, or heck you can even eat them for breakfast!

The first time I ever ate a hummingbird-anything was at this cute little muffin place by my parents house. My mom got me to try one of their hummingbird muffins and I’ve been hooked ever since. I then discovered hummingbird cake and was like – woahhhh, I didn’t know life could get EVEN better! And in case you’re like, Sam WTF is a hummingbird cupcake?! It’s similar to carrot cake, but has crushed pineapple and shredded coconut instead of carrots. It also features a cream cheese frosting, just like carrot cake. If you’re looking for a muffin instead of a cupcake, simply make these without the cream cheese frosting. My suggestion here is – take a plain cupcake, top it with a little crunchy almond butter, and enjoy it as a sweet afternoon snack!

What You’ll Need To Make Almond Flour Hummingbird Cupcakes

Almond Flour – I chose almond flour as the base of these cupcakes for two reasons. One – it’s grain-free, making these cupcakes so light and healthy that you could literally eat them for breakfast if you wanted to. And two – it yields a soft, crumbly cupcake that doesn’t fall apart when bitten into, but also isn’t at all dense. I specifically used this Anthony’s Organic Almond Flour, it’s fairly priced and bakes like a charm!

Coconut Sugar – Just half a cup of coconut sugar is all you need in these cupcakes! This is what I mean by they’re sweet, but not too sweet. Coconut sugar is lower on the glycemic index than usual white sugar. It also contains many more vitamins and minerals than most other sugars. If you don’t have coconut sugar, you can either use brown sugar, cane sugar, or white sugar instead.

Mashed Bananas – You won’t find a single hummingbird recipe without mashed bananas in it. In conjunction with the pineapple and coconut, a little banana is truly magnificent. It adds a touch of sweetness and incredible flavor. Though if you’re not a banana fan, you can use one cup of apple sauce instead.

Crushed Pineapple – Like I said earlier, crushed pineapple is a main ingredient in these hummingbird cupcakes. I buy canned crushed pineapple and rinse out the liquid before using in this recipe. Though you can use finely chopped fresh pineapple instead.

Shredded Coconut – Similar to the crushed pineapple, these wouldn’t be hummingbird cupcakes without a little coconut. My one thing when baking with coconut is to make sure it’s unsweetened. Our cupcakes are sweet enough!

Adjust This Recipe To Your Dietary Needs

  • Make it Paleo: Leave out the dairy-free cream cheese frosting and you’ll have delicious little paleo hummingbird muffins!
  • Make it Vegan: Use your favorite egg-substitute in place of the eggs in this recipe. I have not tested this recipe using flax eggs, though I can image that it will yield slightly less-fluffy, but still delicious cupcakes.
  • Sugar-Free Option: Leave out the frosting and sub 1/2 cup of your favorite sugar-free sweetener for the coconut sugar. You can also leave out the coconut sugar altogether, if you’d like!

Notes

  • Almond Flour: Be sure to use almond flour, not almond meal.
  • Coconut Oil: You can use 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil or melted butter instead.
  • Eggs: I like to remove my eggs from the fridge a couple hours before baking. If your eggs are too cold when added to the batter, they might cause your coconut oil to re-harden.

Start your day off right with this fully loaded breakfast bowl! Crispy potatoes, homemade bourbon bacon ham, smoky chipotle aioli, and fresh avocado, all complete with a fried egg.

I stopped by the Maman in SoHo recently for breakfast with a friend. It was my first time eating an actual meal there (usually just stop by for coffee), and it took me exactly .02 seconds to decide what I wanted to order. The Papa’s Breakfast Bowl had my name written allllll over it. “roasted potatoes, bourbon bacon jam, a sunny egg & sliced avocado served with chipotle aioli,” sign me UP.

What You’ll Need To Make The Ultimate Breakfast Bowl

Potatoes – Either yellow potatoes or baby potatoes will work here! I love yellow potatoes for how beautifully they roast up. Perfectly crispy on the outside, while soft and creamy on the inside. I keep the roasted potatoes in this recipe as simple as possible, since we’ve got a few other things going on! Start by tossing them in salt and oil, then roast for 20 minutes. While the potatoes roast, you’ll have just enough time to make your bourbon bacon jam.

Bacon – Any kind of bacon gets the job done. I used a standard no sugar-added bacon, since we’ll add some maple syrup to the jam later on. Though thick-cut or thin-cut makes no difference in this recipe.

Bourbon – Don’t worry, the bourbon in this recipe is totally safe for people of all ages to consume! Once added to the caramelized onions, the alcohol is completely cooked off, leaving behind only the smoky, slightly sweet taste of bourbon. I personally love the little bit of oomph a touch of bourbon gives our savory jam, but if you’d like, you can definitely make this recipe without it.

Mayonnaise – A few tablespoons of good quality mayo is the base to our chipotle aioli. When making aiolis, I always emphasize the importance of starting with a good quality, mild tasting mayo. I used Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo, which not only tastes delicious, but is much healthier than most other mayos on the market.

Eggs – Maman’s version of this breakfast bowl comes with just one fried egg on top. However, you can certainly add as many eggs as you’d like! You even have the freedom to cook your eggs however you prefer them. Over easy, over hard, scrambled, poached, or boiled, your breakfast bowl will taste delicious no matter what!

Microgreens – While cute and tasty, you don’t have to use microgreens in this recipe. You can certainly use any kind of green you’d like. Or, feel free to leave the greens out altogether.

Adjust This Recipe To Your Dietary Needs

Make it Vegetarian: The only meat in these breakfast bowls is the bacon. So, simply remove the bacon from the jam, and cook the onions in one tablespoon of avocado oil instead.

Make it Paleo: Swap the yellow potatoes for white sweet potatoes for a paleo breakfast bowl! You’ll also want to omit the bourbon from the jam, and use a paleo-compliant mayonnaise in the chipotle aioli.

These almond flour pancakes are extra fluffy, delicious, and super easy to make! One bowl, a handful of ingredients, and 15 minutes is all you need to throw this simple gluten-free breakfast together. These almond flour pancakes are also the perfect blank canvas to any toppings you’d like (I went with blueberries – yum!).

What You’ll Need

Almond Flour – The star of our show – almond flour! It’s naturally gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo friendly. Almond flour is actually the only flour you’ll need for this healthy breakfast recipe. The most common misconception when it comes to almond flour is that it can be used as a 1:1 substitution for regular all purpose flour. However, that’s definitely not the case! Almond flour is much more dense and creates a heavier bake than regular flour. Though in this recipe we lighten the pancakes up with two whole eggs and a touch of milk.

Eggs – Eggs are crucial to keeping these almond flour pancakes held together! They are our binding agent, and without them the pancakes would simply fall apart. I highly recommend using large or extra large eggs for this recipe, though really any size will work.

Coconut Oil or Butter – Whether you’re using a non-stick pan or not, a touch or butter or oil is very useful to prevent sticking. For a non-stick pan, you may be able to get away with using less oil or butter than the recipe calls for. But for either a stainless steel or cast-iron pan, you’ll need the full tablespoon. And if you ever begin to notice sticking throughout the cooking process, then go ahead and add a bit more butter or oil to your pan!

How to Make Almond Flour Pancakes

Making homemade almond flour pancakes is super easy! Start by adding the almond flour and baking powder to a large bowl. Whisk those dry ingredients together before adding in the eggs, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Once your pancake batter is completely combined, then you can add in any fillings/toppings you’d like – fresh blueberries and chocolate chips are my personal favorite!

Now that your batter is all prepped, heat a tablespoon of either butter, coconut oil, or any other neutral-tasting oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, scoop about 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet. The batter will disperse out and form that signature circular pancake shape.

Cook each pancake in the skillet for about 3-5 minutes, or until the bottom is nicely golden brown. Then, use a spatula to carefully flip the pancake and cook the other side. Repeat this cooking process with your remaining better then serve your almond flour pancakes! I recommend finishing them off with a dusting of powdered sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Adjust This Recipe to Your Dietary Needs

Make it Vegan – Make this a vegan almond flour pancake recipe by substituting the two eggs for one flax egg (1 tablespoon of ground flax meal + 3 tablespoons water) and one mashed banana. The flax egg and banana will work together to bind your pancakes and prevent them from falling apart. Also, use your favorite vegan milk in place of the regular milk this recipe calls for.

Make it Dairy-Free – To make this a dairy-free breakfast, simply use almond milk or your favorite non-dairy milk in place of the regular milk in this recipe. Also, be sure to use coconut oil for cooking, instead of butter.
