For the Love of Cauliflower

IMG_3652I’ve turned over a new leaf and cauliflower is behind it. Cauliflower used to be one of my least favorite vegetables until I got a little adventurous with cooking it. Now it’s my favorite substitution to make certain meals or snacks lower in calories.

As I shared yesterday, I’ve made Cauliflower Potato Soup a few times. I thought I’d share some other yummy cauliflower recipes with you.

Baked Potato Cauliflower Soup

IMG_4979I haven’t shared a recipe in a while, but this one is worth passing along. It was a rainy day here yesterday, so it seemed like the perfect time for soup. Honestly, it’s probably one of the last days I’ll be able to make it for a while.

I’ve been making this soup since around this time last year, and I would strongly recommend it.

My husband isn’t a huge fan of cauliflower, but he likes this soup. I promise, it doesn’t taste like cauliflower.

Muffins, Muffins, Muffins

I had seen several recipes on Pinterest that were similar to this one, but they all used bananas. I don’t like banana, so I wanted to try different fruits in my muffins. Hence, the apples you see in the ingredients list…

Coat the muffin tin with non-stick spray or light butter and add your veggies and some green onions. I like to put chopped bell peppers in my egg muffins. It adds flavor and makes the muffins nice and colorful. Next time I think I’ll also add some zucchini, broccoli or asparagus. You can also add bacon or turkey sausage crumbles…

I saw these on Pinterest and thought they looked yummy. So I gave them a try. I forgot to take pictures, but I followed this recipe. Below is a picture of her chocolate cupcake muffins. Mine didn’t actually look like this…at all. But they were still yummy.

Try Some Spaghetti Squash

My favorite vegetable of the moment is spaghetti squash. If you’ve never tried it, you should!

I’d never had it until a few months ago, when I saw one in the grocery store. I felt so adventurous putting such an unfamiliar item in my grocery cart….

It is a great substitute for spaghetti noodles, if you’re looking to cut back on your carbohydrates once in a while. I’ve had it several times now with spaghetti sauce and spicy Italian turkey sausage. It doesn’t have the same texture as noodles, but I never feel like I’m missing out when I have it.

Partial Kitchen & Peanut Chicken

We’re making progress here and there on the kitchen. We measured and planned out the cabinet boxes…Then, we constructed the cabinet boxes for one side of the kitchen, sans the facings. I even helped with cutting the wood, and I got to use the nail gun a few times…The first thing I made on the stove was peanut chicken…If you’re curious, here’s how to make this dish…
