*Brown rice ends up with 34 grams of carbs per serving; using cauliflower rice switches it to 7 grams of carbs.
**I prefer my herbs fresh and I grow them and use them; but most folks may not have access, so I gave the dried equivalents.
- Preheat oven to 375° F.
- Prepare your cauliflower rice so it is cooked, not mushy, just tender. Or you can use an equivalent amount of shirataki rice.
- Place walnuts and cashews on a baking sheet and toast for 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool. Chop them in a food processor.
- Sauté the finely chopped celery, onions, and garlic; mix them all together. Lightly brown this mixture in a skillet with olive oil until it just nicely smells good. I know it’s a relative thing, but when the kitchen smells just perfectly nice, it’s time.
- Add the mushrooms, parsley, marjoram, thyme, and sage. Cook about 5 minutes, until it’s all golden looking. Transfer to a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, lightly beat together 4 eggs.
- In the large bowl, add the lightly beaten eggs, cooked cauliflower rice, and chopped nuts; and mix everything together.
- Add all the rest (cottage cheese, Swiss cheese, salt, and pepper) and mix it well.
- Butter a 9×5-inch loaf pan, line the bottom with parchment paper, and butter it again. Pour the mixture from the bowl into the pan.
- Bake 1 hour until golden brown. Let cool in pan for 20 minutes, then invert loaf and remove from pan. Slice into pieces and serve warm.
- Store leftovers for a few days in the refrigerator or a few months in the freezer (cut into slices). It makes good sandwiches and doesn’t last long. It’s really super-powered stuff.
- Reheat in a 375° F. oven.
