This month, I have been all about the cauliflower rage. And freezer foods. I love quick. easy meals and sides. There’s something about that magical cauliflower that has me feeling all light and summery.
Here are a few of my favorite things this month.
Although I have seen this in the freezer for months, I didn’t take the plunge to try it until a friend suggested it on my Instagram post last month. I am very disappointed in myself. If you are a fan of gnocchi, you will love this Cauliflower Gnocchi replacement. It’s also perfect for my gluten-free friends. You know who you are. My pasta-loving boyfriend isn’t a fan of gnocchi (it’s a texture thing), so I get these bad boys all to myself. I topped mine with marinara, but I am excited to try a variety of different ways.
Chicken-less Mandarin Orange Morsels
Since switching to an 80% veggie diet, I try to limit my soy intake and use other proteins to supplement. However, these Chicken-less Mandarin Orange Morsels are one of the things I make an exception for. Now, I have a guilt-free, vegan version of one of my favorite Asian dishes. Serve with any kind of rice, but my favorite is the riced cauliflower stir fry.
Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry
This Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry is not only the perfect complement to the chicken-less mandarin orange morsels, but it goes great with any Asian meal. I am a huge fan of easy to cook side, and the minds at Trader Joe’s do all of the hard work for me. All that’s left is heating it up in the skillet.
Roasted Potatoes With Peppers & Onions
In a perfect world there would be a cauliflower alternative to the Roasted Potatoes with Peppers & Onions to round off this carb-friendly post. However, if you are going to get in potato carbs, you might as well do it with these. Not only is it straight from the bag to skillet with no prep-work or seasoning needed, but it’s so good and the perfect side for any meal.
Sambucus Elderberry Gummies
School is starting back up in just a couple of weeks, so I am getting a headstart by taking these Sambucus Elderberry Gummies every day to build up my immune system. Ain’t nobody got time for the flu or a cold this year. The gummies make it easy to pop in on the way out the door too.
