One of the most fun things about recipe development is taking a recipe you love, and adapting it. Sometimes it’s about making it healthier, or adapting it to fit different diets. If you read here often, you know how much I love fish tacos. However, a lot of readers here are not looking for fish based recipes (I don’t post many). Therefore, I created chipotle cauliflower hummus tacos with cumin slaw to be vegan, and just as delicious! Continue reading →
Leafy greens are one of the hardest foods for me to consume regularly. Spinach and kale are the easy ones. I devour kale salads when I bother to make them, and I try to mix spinach into dishes like quesadillas or lasagna. I mixed chard into enchiladas before, but I was inspired by Joanne@Eats Well with Others to try a pesto! This spicy cauliflower Swiss chard pesto pasta recipe was amazing! Seriously, I surprised myself with how much I loved it, and I found a new way to enjoy more leafy greens like chard. Continue reading →
I have been eating a mostly vegetarian diet for a little over five years. One of the things I find myself easily doing is eating a lot of carbohydrates. I get plenty of protein too, but when you are searching for substitutes in a dish like sloppy joes, carb-heavy fillers can become the easy choice. I finally upgraded my lentil and bulgar sloppy joes recipe, focusing on getting a serving of veggies instead of carbs. Lentil cauliflower vegan sloppy joes are just as tasty, and help me to focus on eating more vegetables! Continue reading →
These buffalo blue cheese vegetarian taquitos were created completely on a whim. Oftentimes I buy a few extra ingredients that aren’t on my grocery list at the store, simply because they are on sale. One night when I needed a quick weeknight meal, I riffled through the fridge and found some 6-inch tortillas, so I whipped up these taquitos . I had seen a vegan buffalo taquitos pin on pinterest and thought it looked like a fantastic idea, but I hadn’t even look at the recipe. As it turned out, my version is loaded with tangy blue cheese, as well as a healthy does of vegetables! Continue reading →
Curry is one of those dishes that can be made in about a million different ways, with so many different ingredients! It can be hard to narrow down what you want to try when it comes to making a curry recipe. It can also be difficult to find all the ingredients locally available. This tomato coconut curry with cauliflower and chickpeas is made with simple ingredients and spices, so it will be easy to make and enjoy! Continue reading →
The temperatures are warming and spring is in the air. The tulips in front of my house are even starting to sprout up out of the ground in anticipation of spring. This roasted cauliflower soup with smoked gouda recipe is a great end of winter dish that I have been making a lot recently. You can make it as rich or as light as you like, based on how much half and half you use. Plus it will use up all your soup crackers before soup is no longer in season! Continue reading →
Spicy buffalo sauce is one of my favorite flavors. I mentioned this in my post for Buffalo Queso Dip. Experimenting with food is kind-of a food bloggers job, and I will experiment all day with buffalo sauce! And please don’t think I’m kidding. Good hot sauce can belong on breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or on this appetizer, Beer Battered Buffalo Cauliflower! Continue reading →
