I’m really trying to get back into the kitchen and posting recipes. I did a little traveling over the weekend and even that little bit throws me off my cooking game. Here’s an easy simple recipe that anyone can make. It’s great for a quick lunch, snack, or even a side dish.
Ingredients and Tools
Spiral Slice desired amount of zucchini and cucumbers
And I’m back in the kitchen! So I’ve been thinking a lot about soups lately, probably because the weather is getting cooler and it’s a comfort food. So I whipped up this bisque with a few simple ingredients.
Cauliflower ( I used orange) – about a 1/4 of the head chopped
Kale – 2 leaves chopped
Cheese of choice (I used Daiya Cheddar) – 3 handfuls
Garlic – 1 generous spoonful
White onions – 1/4 onion chopped
Almond Milk – about 1 cup
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp of olive oil
In a sauce pan combine salt, pepper, milk and cheese on low heat stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes
In a saute pan, add olive oil, cauliflower, kale, garlic, and onions on medium heat until vegetables are tender. Add 1/2 cup of cheese mixture to vegetables and cook covered for about 5 minutes.
Add vegetable mixture and cheese sauce to blender (I used the big cup of the Nutrabullet), blend until creamy and smooth.
I’ve been super lazy with cooking lately. I blame football season and training for work. But today I spend the majority of my day in the kitchen whipping up some meals. Here’s a great tasting sandwich that’s easy to make.
1/3 cup cashews
1/3 cup macadamia nuts
Cremini Mushrooms (sliced)
Sweet Peppers (sliced)
Applie Cider Vinegar
Put cashews and macadamia nuts in a contained, cover with water. Soak for about 2 hours in the fridge.
Place desired amount of spinach, mushrooms, and sweet peppers in a pan with a spoonful of coconut oil.
Saute in pan until spinach is cooked
Remove nuts from fridge, empty some of the water, add 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar, place in blender and mix until smooth.
Once smooth, spread on bread, place veggie mix on bread and press together for a delicious sandwich!
