Friends. We have come to the end of June. How the heck this happened, I have no idea. But alas, here we are!
The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and summer produce is in FULL SWING!
Last night, I made an AMAZING meal! We’re talking a 10/10! Delicious, filling, healthy and beautiful to boot! Plus – it showcased a bunch of summer veggies! What was it?
My Beet, Mushroom and Basil Cauli-Flatbread!
Talk about a fabulous treat! And it’s gluten/grain free, Specific Carb Diet friendly, Paleo, and has a Vegan option!
Here’s What You Need: (Serves 1)
1/4 cup almond flour
1 cup cauliflower
2 egg whites (Vegan option: 2 flax/chia eggs)
salt and pepper
1 beet, scrubbed and diced
2 Tbsp onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper
4 mushrooms, sliced
5 sugar snap peas, sliced into bite sized pieces
fresh basil, chopped
Good Chef’s Knife (This is the one I use and love)
Tinfoil (I use nonstick and it’s a GAME CHANGER)
2 Baking sheets
Pyrex bowl (Or steamer basket)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub and dry your beet. Then, cut it into 1/2 in cubes. Place them on a tinfoil-lined, olive oil-sprayed baking sheet in an even layer. Spritz with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring once halfway through.
While that’s baking, prepare your crust. Steam or microwave your cauliflower until tender. (I nuked mine in a pyrex bowl with 1/2 inch of water, covered with a paper towel). Let cool slightly, and then place the florets into the food processor and process until it resembles rice. Place the riced cauliflower in a clean kitchen towel (or several paper towels, or cheese cloth) and wring out as much water as you can. (This step is really important!) Then, mix your dried cauliflower rice with your egg of choice, almond flour, salt and pepper. Set aside. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper and place one on a baking sheet. Put the cauliflower dough in the center of the sheet. Place the other sheet of parchment on top and “smoosh” out the dough to form a circle. Don’t make it too thin, but spread until you get a nice sized crust. Bake the crust for 35 minutes at 400 degrees. This is what the underside of the crust looks like when it’s finished: see how golden and crispy it is?!
Meanwhile, sauté your mushrooms and sugar snap peas in 1 Tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper for just a few minutes, until the mushrooms brown and the peas become a vibrant green. Transfer to a plate and set aside. In the same pan, add another Tbsp of EVOO and sauté the onions and garlic with salt and pepper. Allow the onions to brown a bit, and then transfer them to the food processor.
When your beets come out of the oven, place them in the food processor with the onions and garlic. Add some salt and pepper and blend until creamy.
To assemble: Place your crust on the plate…
Top with the beet mixture…
Top with your mushrooms and sugar snap peas…
Garnish with fresh basil and DIG IN!
I cannot even begin to describe how delicious this flatbread was!! First – the crust was chewy and a little crispy. You could NOT taste the cauliflower AT ALL! It had a subtle nuttiness to it from the almond flour.
And the entire thing was just bursting with flavor! There was an earthy sweetness to the dish. The beets had an underlying sweetness that was complimented by the sweet sugar snap peas. the mushrooms really highlighted the earthiness of the beets! And the basil gave the dish a wonderful freshness that tied it all together!
Finally, it was a truly beautiful dish. The white mushrooms and green peas just popped off the of the deep crimson beets. It looked like a work of art. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost. 😉
Alright! That’ll do it for tonight, folks!
Happy cooking! Happy eating! Happy Summering!
What’s your favorite summer produce? Mine is DEFINITELY fresh basil, tomatoes, and WATERMELON!!!! ((My mouth is watering just thinking about it!))

Thanks Tonya for the link up! Hugs and love xox
I like fresh strawberries with fat free whipped cream in the summer. However, it’s hard to find organic in my area, because strawberries don’t grow well here.
Oooh that sounds so refreshing and yummy! Oh bummer – can you find frozen?? Hugs and love xox
My wife will LOVE this!! But I can’t stand mushrooms…
Hey Mike! Haha uh oh! Perhaps substitute zucchini or eggplant?? 🙂 Hugs and love xox
Fabulous idea on eggplant! I love that!
Yes!! I love the mini Japanese variety 👍🏼

I’m going to My kitchen right now…and I’m going to eat, just incase I get hungry predicting that Your next recipe is going to be even more delicious 😄. I wish I could blend “Flavourful + Delicious + Appetising” right now 🤩🤤👌🏻
Thanks so much!! Hahahaha you’re funny!! Non appetite! Hugs and love xox
Hahaha! Thanks. A good delicacy deserves happiness and hence the funny comment 🙂. And was it that You wanted to say Bon Appetit or Non appetite? I actually stay away from beet but after seeing Your recipe I almost felt like I’ll regret it if I do not try this recipe today 😄. I did try though for the fun part of hoping I maybe would like beet, not to mention I over burnt it at the end, haha!
Bon!! Did it autocorrect? Oops!
Cool, No Problem!🙂Best Wishes⭐️…Try a dish known as “Beetroot Pachadi” in your free time if You like Beets. I’m not sure if You’d like that since it falls into the spicy snack variety but worth a try if You are interested. It’s simple and a famous Indian delicacy.
Oooh sounds intriguing!!! Thanks for the tip!
I got hungry looking at this flatbread. I have not eaten beets in many years. I am going to take the leap and try them this summer making this flatbread. Thank you for the play by play on how to make it. That gluten free crust is a bonus.
Aw thanks Ada!! Ooh yes! I hope the reintroduction to the purple little guys is a good one! Haha Hugs and love xox

Caralyn, bless you and your family! I pray that God has brought together one of the best family gatherings and holidays ever, I sense that is the case! Meanwhile, When you have a moment, while I work up an appetite for breakfast, “how can I not looking at this post,” I ask that you please go back and read “Do You Think This Is A Joy Ride?” Because as I slept I did as I sometimes do when thinking about God and His inspiration before falling into my sleep I went to sleep and dreamed of some of these things I had written before going to bed, suddenly I awoke realizing what was left unsaid or still needed to be in order to be as clear as possible! Thank You! Ciao.
