Healthy Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust

Healthy Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust
I was planning to share a quinoa, kale and tofu skillet recipe this morning, however plans changed after I had one bite of the pizza I made last night for dinner. Don’t get me wrong, the kale and tofu dish is great (I’ll still post the recipe sometime this week). However, this pizza isn’t your average pie and judging from the response I got when I posted an Instragram photo on Facebook last night, the recipe needed to be shared right away. The thing that makes this pizza so unique is that the crust is made out of cauliflower – yes, the vegetable! I honestly can’t remember when or where I first saw the idea for pizza made with a cauliflower crust (probably Pinterest), but I know that it has been done many times before. I used this blog post from DAMY Health as a guide and came up with a variation of the recipe. So yes, pizza CAN BE healthy! Healthy Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust Pre-heat oven to 400° F. I found that it’s easier to eat this pizza with a fork/knife.

No Sugar Oat Drops When I first saw this recipe I was intrigued by the fact that these have NO sugar, butter, eggs or anything that can be considered unhealthy. Always on the hunt for things to throw at my kids at feeding time, I gave them a whirl. They are amazing, surprisingly light, incredibly filling and tasty, you can mix and match the ingredients to get a different result each time, adding different seeds fruits or nuts.You can freeze them wrapped individually and have a easy breakfast on the go. 1 1/2 cups regular rolled oats (use whatever type of oats you like) 1 cup coconut flakes 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1/4 cup of almond meal (or nutmeal of your choice) ( If you want to make it nut free you could use a flour, just adjust the wet ingredients to get the right consistency) 1/2 cup mixed nuts, finely chopped 1 cup dried fruit (of your choice or chocolate chips or berries) Preheat oven to 175C.

AUTUMN SALAD WITH HORSERADISH VINAIGRETTE + NEWS! I'm pregnant! We're pregnant is what you say, I suppose, but I'm the one in the stretchy pants over here. So many things to say about this, friends, but I'm at a loss for words at the same time. This may be more of a generally-emotional-lady thing, so bear with me, but you know when you feel outside of yourself? Like little crazy trolls are frantic in your head making you irritable and easily bringing you to tears. Dark Chocolate Mousse Bars Many of my friends have seen my baking cupboard…that spot where I keep extracts, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and stacks of Ghirardelli chocolate bars. We go through A LOT of those chocolate bars. But I hadn’t baked with Ghirardelli’s 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips till I tested out these scrumptious Dark Chocolate Mousse Bars. This recipe was a cinch to whip up…with a phenomenal pay off. To start, an easy graham cracker crust was mixed, tamped, baked and then cooled while the filling was prepped.

Vegan Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Good morning and happy Friday from Boston! We’re headed out to explore the city in a bit, but I thought I would pop in and share a recipe with you. In my last post I mentioned that, despite the chillier weather we’ve been experiencing, I hadn’t broke out the pumpkin recipes yet. Well… that changed last night. I think the fall favor of the butternut squash protein pancakes are to blame – they made me crave pumpkin goodies. Detox Salad One of my favourite things to do after visiting Whole Foods is to re-create salad bar foods or specialty products at home for much less money. Or at least, that’s my good intention until I get home and I can’t remember the ingredient list! Not last night. :) Thanks Eric! After we dined – Eric on pizza and me on the hot & cold salad bar – I picked up the ingredients for the Detox Salad and vowed to make it when I got home that night.

Cookie Dough Dip recipe Got a hankering for spooning into a bowl of Chocolate Chip Cookie dough? Yeah, we get those, too. Like, weekly. Okay, daily. Okay, every dag-blummed minute of our lives. Easy Crust-less Spinach and Feta Pie In honor of National Pi Day, a day in history that celebrates the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter (3.14), I can't think of a better way to celebrate such an ironic-named holiday than to share a slice of this simply delicious, savory spinach pie recipe from the archives. A simple Greek inspired pie combining savory flavors such as spinach, feta, Asiago cheese, dill and scallions. Perfect to take to a potluck! Served with a salad, you can turn this into a main dish, or cut it into smaller wedges to serve as an appetizer.

Cavolfiore Palma a la Leah (Pan-Roasted Cauliflower) recipe on Food52.com Author Notes: My friends and I stumbled upon the cutest Italian restaurant in the West Village that is truly a hidden gem (which is why I decline to name it here) and it has since been the venue for a number of our families' important dinners, including my wedding rehearsal dinner. They serve this cauliflower dish as an appetizer but it's more of a side dish in my mind. It's definitely my favorite thing on the menu and everything they make is amazing, so this one is quite special. I'm not sure if I'm replicating it exactly, but I come pretty close. The original recipe features currants, but lacking those at the moment I substituted golden sultana raisins and a little bit of sumac for the slight tartness you'd get from currants but is sadly absent from a raisin.

12 vegetarian Thanksgiving dishes to make omnivores jealous This article originally appeared on Food52.com Thanksgiving for vegetarians really isn’t that big of a deal. Unless you’re sitting at a table where everything has been pre-drenched in gravy or stewed in chicken stock or fried in bacon fat (I assume that such tables exist, but I have never sat at one), there are probably enough meatless foodstuffs to make a meatless meal. But it’s a holiday that centers around turkey, and thus there’s an odd spotlight that shines, each year, on meat abstainers. What will they eat?
