Cauliflower-Rice Stuffed Capons


Stuffed capons can actually be healthy and festive at the same time! The bread crumb option here is really just for fun. The glaze on its own gives enough bright color and moisture. But traditional rollups have a bread crumb topping, so if you want to replicate that look, go for it. Serve with Root Hash and Garlic Asparagus.)


Prepare the Cauliflower Rice

1. Sauté diced onion over low heat until golden brown. Remove onion from frying pan and set aside.
2. Heat one teaspoon of oil in the frying pan. Add riced cauliflower in batches. Cook each batch, covered, for four to five minutes, then uncover and cook until lightly browned, stirring every few minutes.
3. After all the batches are done, combine “rice” with onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


To make your own riced cauliflower, place five to six florets at a time in a food processor fitted with the S blade and pulse until it resembles rice.

Prepare the Capons

1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, garlic, and pepper.
2. Rub one side of each cutlet with the mixture. Place about one-fourth cup of cauliflower rice in the center of the cutlet. Roll up each cutlet very tightly by placing one side over and then the other to close. Place roll seam side down in a nine- by nine-inch (23- by 23-centimeter) oven-to-table baking dish very close together to ensure that the rolls hold well.
3. Combine the apricot jam, coconut aminos, garlic, and pepper. Use a brush to baste the tops of the rollups.
4. To make the mock bread crumb topping, place the crumb ingredients into a plastic bag and shake until well combined, then sprinkle over the glazed cutlets.
5. Bake for 40 minutes.
6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
