Yes! Paleo Longsilog made with Longganisa crumbles, cauliflower rice, wilted greens and of course a fried egg. It’s the perfect meal if you are looking for something super healthy to eat.
This has been one of the recipes I have been meaning to make for the longest time. Finally the stars have aligned and I had all the ingredients to make this Paleo Longsilog. First of all lets answer this question first.
Well it’s a breakfast dish consisting of 3 main components:
Let’s breakdown Long-si-log shall we.
Long is short for Longganisa | Si is short for Sinagag | log is short for itlog
To put it simply a Silog is a term of endearment to what Filipinos eat for breakfast. The first part is the type of protein you are eating. Then the day old rice cooked with garlic and a crispy fried egg to top it off. Because after all it’s breakfast.
Now I am going to walk you through on how to make all the components of this meal. You will be using both the oven and the stove top at the same time, so be prepared with some multi-tasking.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the cauliflower rice, olive oil, garlic powder in a baking tray. Toss to coat and season the cauliflower and then spread in an even layer. Bake for 30 minutes.
While the cauliflower is in the oven make the logganisa crumbles. In a large pot heat up the olive oil on medium heat and add the pork. Cook for 5 minutes and then add in the garlic. Cook for a further 10 minutes until nice and brown.
Add in the coconut aminos, vinegar, date syrup, and other seasonings. Cook for another 5 minutes to develop flavor. Taste and adjust the sweet, salty or sour levels to your liking. Leave in the pot until ready to serve.
In a separate frying pan heat up the olive oil on medium heat and add in the spinach. Cook for 5 minutes until wilted, but still green and vibrant. Season with salt and pepper. Leave in the pan until ready to serve.
Check on the cauliflower and turn off oven and leave to the side until ready for serving.
To make the friend egg heat up the oil in a small skillet on medium heat. Crack an egg into the hot oil and cook for 3-4 minutes just until the egg white is set. Transfer to a plate and repeat for the other 3 eggs.
Place rice, longganisa crumbles, greens, eggs and tomato and chives on the table and serve family style.
My friend Ginger Dimpasok from Cafe 86 has made a version of this with apple sauce. If you don't have Date Syrup you can replace it with 1/2 cup of apple sauce instead.
You can also replace the Coconut Vinegar with regular white vinegar or even apple cider vinegar.
