Seared Ahi Tuna with Chimichurri — Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Delicious

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

seared-ahi-tuna-with-chimichurri

Welcome back to Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups, coupons, and sales. This week I picked up a beautiful piece of Ahi tuna at Fresh Thyme for $4.97/lb on their grand opening double ad Wednesday, and they also had bunches of parsley for just $.50 each. Well, doesn’t that just cry out for Seared Ahi Tuna with Chimichurri? This recipe was inspired by the seared tuna with chimichurri over at Kitchen Confidante, but with my own less chunky cilantro-free chimichurri and a spinach-based salad.

ahi-tuna-salad-with-chimichurri-6

Yes, I’m one of those unfortunate people for whom cilantro tastes like soap, but what can you do? Chimichurri is plenty delicious made with parsley, but if you prefer to cilantro yours up instead, just have fun playing with the recipe — it’s not an exact science here.

ahi-tuna-salad-with-chimichurri-7

I served our Seared Ahi Tuna with Chimichurri on a bed of mixed spinach & romaine, then added some sliced radishes, avocado, and green onions for garnish and their smooth-crunchy sharp-mellow contrast. Again, play with different lettuces and add-ons for a flavorful meal that’s pretty enough for date night yet super easy to put together.

Seared Ahi Tuna with Chimichurri

Ingredients

1 lb sushi grade Ahi tuna steak
leaves from one bunch fresh flat leaf parsley
handful fresh oregano leaves (substitute dried to taste if not available)
a few fresh basil leaves (substitute dried to taste if not available)
4 peeled garlic cloves
1 small jalapeño (omit if you don’t like yours spicy)
1/4 medium yellow onion
Juice from 1/2 a small lime
1/3 cup olive oil
2.5 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp cayenne (cut down or omit if you don’t like yours spicy)
black pepper to taste
Kosher salt to taste
Salad fixings of choice — I used spinach, romaine, radishes, green onions, and avocado

Directions

chimichurri-3

To make your chimichurri sauce: Add parsley, oregano, basil, garlic, jalapeño, onion, lime juice, olive oil, vinegar, cayenne, pepper, and salt to food processor and blend until fairly smooth.

seared-tuna

To sear your tuna: Heat two tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Salt and pepper both sides of your tuna, then sear for two minutes per side over medium heat. Remove to cutting board and slice thinly against the grain.

ahi-tuna-salad-wtih-chimichurri-8

To serve: Arrange tuna slices on a bed of salad greens of choice. Drizzle with chimichurri sauce and top the salad with whatever add-ons you have handy and sound tasty in this context. :)

Best. Dinner. Ever.

MashupDad and I enjoyed our Seared Ahi Tuna with Chimichurri while the munchkins ate chicken brats. That works! And this was sooo good, you guys, just an amazing combination of fresh flavors and textures. The chimichurri recipe here is fairly spicy, so you will want to omit the jalapeño and cayenne if you’re sensitive to that — and the whole meal is naturally gluten free, dairy free, and low carb.

chimichurri2

You’ll end up with a good bit of leftover chimichurri sauce, but this is a feature rather than a bug. Keep your chimichurri tightly covered in the refrigerator, and use it throughout the week to jazz up everything from burgers to grilled chicken to tacos to eggs. You can also thin it out slightly with a little more olive oil and vinegar to make a vibrant (and sugar free!) salad dressing.

Note: If you have concerns about seared tuna you can choose to cook yours all the way through, although you’ll lose some of the flavor and juiciness. I felt fairly confident in serving ours seared, since tuna is low risk and mine was previously frozen.

Portobello Poblano Tacos

easy-portobello-poblano-tacos

Welcome back to Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups, coupons, and sales. Earlier this week Jewel had portobello mushroom caps on sale for $.49 each, and my ALDI had three packs of poblano peppers for $1.39. Combine those with a pack of $.33 corn tortillas from ALDI and the avocados that were for sale all over town for Cinco de Mayo, and you have yourself an affordable but oh so tasty recipe for Portobello Poblano Tacos!

waiting-for-guac

These are both gluten free and vegetarian — and can be vegan if you leave off the cheese, so a great variation on your Taco Tuesday or Meatless Monday. Top with whatever taco fixings you prefer; I just served mine with guacamole and a little shredded queso quesadilla (also from ALDI).

Portobello Poblano Tacos

ingredients-ready

Ingredients

for the marinade

1/4 cup olive oil
Juice of 1-2 small limes (mine weren’t very juicy, so I used two)
1 tsp minced garlic
1.5 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp Kosher salt

for the filling

3-4 portobello mushroom caps
1 medium yellow onion
3 poblano peppers

for the serving

Corn tortillas
cheese
guacamole
other taco fixings of choice

Directions

veggies-in-bowl

Remove portobello stems, scoop out gills, and slice into strips. Slice onion. Remove stems and seeds from peppers and slice into strips. Mix all marinade ingredients, pour over veggies, and toss gently to coat. Let vegetables marinate for about 15 minutes while you make guacamole and get your other toppings together.

done-veggies-in-pan

Saute vegetables in olive oil over medium-high heat for 12-15 minutes, until onions are soft and mushrooms are softening. Serve in warmed corn tortillas with guacamole, cheese, or other taco fixings of your choice.

And there’s your meat-free taco night!

portobello-poblano-tacos

The meaty portobellos are plenty filling, and the slight kick and crunch of the poblanos provides the perfect counterpoint to some creamy guacamole. I’ll definitely be making this healthier Taco Tuesday alternative again… I’m kind of wishing I had some more right now, actually!

portobello-poblano-eggs

Some of the leftover diced up veggies made a mean batch of scrambled eggs the next day, too.

Low Carb Cauliflower Waffle Rolls

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

low-carb-cauliflower-waffles-as-rolls

Welcome back to Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups, coupons, and sales. This week: Low Carb Cauliflower Waffle Rolls. I got a head of cauliflower for $2.00 at Trader Joe’s (and saw them for $2.29 each at ALDI), so wanted to share this fun modification to the Low Carb Cauliflower Rolls recipe I posted a few months back. Low carb MashupDad started adding a little Parmesan cheese to the original recipe, then one of his coworkers suggested cooking them up in the waffle iron — which makes them slightly less crumbly, and lets you break them apart easily to make sandwich halves or quarters.

low-carb-cauliflower-waffle-roll-with-cheese

By the way, I’m keeping this recipe handy for next April Fool’s Day — do you think Mr. 8 would buy that Low Carb Cauliflower Waffle Rolls with white cheddar cheese were actually… cinnamon waffles with frosting? 😉

Low Carb Cauliflower Waffle Rolls

ingredients-low-carb-cauliflower-rolls

Ingredients

3 cups “riced” cauliflower (less than a large head of cauliflower, so rice your florets a bit at a time until you hit three cups)
3 Tbsp almond flour
1 Tbsp coconut flour
2 eggs
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
Cooking spray

Directions

Wash cauliflower and chop into florets. Add to food processor and pulse until your cauliflower reaches “rice” consistency, scraping down the sides as necessary. Combine riced cauliflower, eggs, almond flour, coconut flour, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and sea salt in large bowl and stir until well combined.

on-waffle-iron

Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and heat on medium until ready to cook. Scoop out a half cup of cauliflower mixture, packed, and add to waffle iron. Press out slightly, then close waffle iron and cook for six minutes.

low-carb-cauliflower-waffle-roll-on-iron

Open to reveal your low carb cauliflower waffle roll in all its browned glory! Repeat the process with the rest of your cauliflower mixture, spraying your waffle iron again if rolls start to stick. Makes five rolls, which you can store tightly covered in your refrigerator for up to a week.

These savory Low Carb Cauliflower Rolls are perfect…

leaning-tower-of-low-carb-waffles-3

… for sandwiches, broiling up with a little cheese on top, with scrambled eggs, and more! Confession time: I cooked up the cheddar cheesy one pictured above for MashupDad, but kind of ended up eating it myself — they’re just that good. These are low carb and can also be gluten free, as long as you use a Parmesan without wheat-based fillers. (I’m honestly not sure if the ALDI Priano Parmesan pictured here is gluten free, so substitute a cheese appropriate to your own family’s dietary needs if necessary.) Be forewarned that low Carb Cauliflower Waffle Rolls are very filling, so plan accordingly when incorporating these into your own meals.

Were you at the Gluten Free Expo today too?

gfexpo

Things are skewed a bit later than usual today because Junior High Guy and I spent the morning at the Gluten Free Expo in Schaumburg. You may have been there too — I’d never have seen you in the crowd because there were a few too many people for the space, but this was a really nice array of gluten free, allergy friendly vendors and products. :)

lsline

This is me standing for 25 minutes in the LivingSocial ticket holder line to get in — that part wasn’t as well handled, as people with regular tickets were able to walk right in with almost no lines. (Hopefully if they sell tickets through LivingSocial again next year, they’ll speed up the check-in process or up the staffing levels!) It looked a lot calmer when I left, so if you go tomorrow you may wish to head over a little later in the day.

cheesewich

And here’s low carb MashupDad’s favorite photo from the event — he’d eat these all day!

Jewel had a nice booth there, as did Fresh Thyme, Angelo Caputo’s, Costco, and Meijer. Fresh Thyme was passing out Mambo Sprouts booklets, a $5/$30 coupon, and other coupons, while Jewel was giving out Skinny Pop and a $5/$50 coupon. Jewel also offers free tours with registered dietitians if you have questions about gluten and allergy free products (call 630-336-0603 or email [email protected]).

Jewel is also holding gluten free fairs:

  • Thurs 5/7 4-7PM 1227 Naper Blvd, Naperville
  • Sat 5/9 11-2PM 370 N. Des Plaines, Chicago
  • Sat 5/16 11-2PM 7525 W. Lake St., River Forest
  • Sun 5/17 11-2PM 9449 N. Skokie Blvd, Skokie

gfsamples

I came home with a nice array of coupons and samples, and highly recommend checking out the expo tomorrow if you have a chance. It’s a great chance to check out new products from well-known brands, as well as to get an introduction to newer or smaller companies offering gluten free products — be sure to bring your appetite, as you can eat your way through the Expo while enjoying samples at almost every booth.
