Skillet Cauliflower Gratin

I just returned from a food bloggers conference and firmly decided to eat more vegetables after speaking with an amazing holistic nutritionist. According to Marisa, only 15% of our daily protein intake should come from animal sources. Yikes… Frankly, I suspected that because for many past months I have been exercising a lot and eating very high protein diet without drastic changes in my physique. So, lesson learnt. Of course, the menu always comes down to picky little eaters. My kids are very good at eating fresh juicy garden…

Roasted Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Where do I begin?! Let me just say this: I’m not a huge traditional mac and cheese person but I love spaghetti squash mac and cheese and my zucchini mac and cheese. Now, here is a mind blowing combination: pasta, roasted cauliflower and garlic, and cheese => baked and I died. This roasted cauliflower mac and cheese is such an awesome hybrid of two dishes, delicious and contains half of large cauliflower head in here. My kids had seconds, licked the plates and after my toddler told me “I like you”. When…

Quinoa Gratin

When a cashier was nice enough to point out $5 price for a head of cauliflower, I was frankly surprised September is not a cauliflower season. Oh well, I went ahead and bought 2 heads anyways and made this delicious quinoa gratin. If you ever want to eat something without stressing about the calories, know it’s vegetables. You will get full before you overeat them.

Grilled Cauliflower with Smoked Paprika

We often hear “Eat your vegetables”, right?! I think it’s easier said than done. Even a clean eating freak like me gets bored with repetitive vegetable dishes week after week. I find that in order to eat a lot of vegetables, I have to change things up. The key is to have a variety of simple recipes handy and consume vegetables in various forms – smoothies, salads, baked, grilled and raw. 

Cauliflower Breadsticks

Phenomenal low carb alternative to traditional cheesy breadsticks. These cauliflower breadsticks are full of flavour, cheesy and easy. Yes, this recipe is foolproof, just like my so popular cauliflower pizza crust recipe (the amount of re-pins is insane => thank you!).  However for this recipe, I ditched the cheesecloth and made a few tricks with the ingredients. And you can pick them up by hand, I know you you are wondering about that. The answer is YES. Another easy pizza alternative I recently posted is oatmeal pizza crust, that is quickly…

Cilantro Lime Cauliflower with Avocado

I used to hate cauliflower. Then I saw how many of you guys like it. I made Roasted Garlic & Parmesan Cauliflower and then my cauliflower world was totally rocked by this Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe. Cauliflower is white, mild in taste and low in calories. Hello, what not to like?! Wohoo, let’s abuse cauliflower for the next 50 recipes. It’s dirt cheap, which is quite important as I’m spending hundreds of $$$ on organic chicken breasts on my quest to see the abs.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

Cauliflower pizza crust has gained a huge popularity in the past few years among low carb dieters and mainly fitness enthusiasts. Because you are indulging with pizza, America’s favourite comfort food, and not wrecking your nutrition numbers. I held off making cauliflower pizza because I simply was confused by various cooking methods and knew it would take me some time to come up with a foolproof recipe. And I was right, it took me 3 pizzas and 2 days (on and off) and here we are. This cauliflower pizza…

Crock Pot Chicken, Rice and Mushroom Soup

Um, will you run away if I tell you this soup is made with cauliflower?! Like no flour and milk slurry to thicken the broth. A head of cauliflower. My $2.99 organic vegetable. A few month ago, while experimenting with soup recipes for my eBook, I discovered it does wonders in a crock pot. So, cauliflower, rice, 2 chicken breasts, stock, veggies and spices. Turn on and see you later. I’m addicted to my crock pot! I love my crock pot and he loves me back. It makes me feel…

Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Cauliflower

  Really I can eat only so many cookies, cranberry orange bread and caramel popcorn. Even if it’s all healthy. Besides being married to Alex for over 8 years (w.o.w), I’m married to my veggies. Lately, we ran out of my mom’s supply of organic and free venison (she kinda hunts), and been trying to eat more veggies. Truth be told, it’s cheaper and healthier. Yep, I refuse to buy GMO corn and soy fed meat and it makes me feel better by saving a cow or two….
