Southwest Shepherd’s Pie


I have an overwhelmingly large amount of ground turkey in my home. I bought two pounds today on sale at Smart & Final along with a pound of ground turkey breakfast sausage. When I came home I discovered I have four more pounds of ground turkey in my freezer. So I set out to find…

Spinach and Rice Casserole {lower carb}


After the success I had a few weeks ago with making a broccoli rice cheese casserole substituting most of the rice for cauliflower rice, I decided to find additional casserole recipes to make “healthier” by adding cauliflower rice. There are probably not surprisingly a ton of options out there. I decided to try to go…

{lower carb} Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole


I guess you could say I’m a little bit obsessed with cauliflower rice recently. I keep thinking of ways I can sneak it into dishes as a substitute for regular rice. So I got to thinking about the traditional broccoli cheese rice casserole dish my mom makes and the millions of variations of the dish…

Cauliflower Fritters


Every time I buy cauliflower (or rather cauliflower rice these days) I get grandiose thoughts of doing something cool with it and then sort of forget that the cauliflower is even in my refrigerator. I guess I must not find cauliflower all that exciting when you get right down to it or I wouldn’t procrastinate…

Cauliflower Fried Rice {with ahi tuna}


  The first time I tried substituting “cauliflower” for rice in an Asian dish, I liked it enough but didn’t love it. There was something about the texture that didn’t thrill me. It was a great substitute and a great way to make a dish healthier but it was missing something. About a week or…

Cauliflower Gratin


I found a very basic recipe for Cauliflower Gratin when flipping through Foot Network Magazine a couple of weeks ago. I unsheathed the recipe this morning when I was trying to finalize my Thanksgiving menu and found the recipe in a pile of recipes I had set aside. I had an extra bag of Riced…

Basil Thai Chicken over {Cauliflower} Rice


The other day I was trying to get creative about sneakily adding more vegetables into my dinner so I began researching how I could do so with cauliflower. Trader Joe’s sells “riced” cauliflower that I’ve been eyeing up for a while. So I looked up recipes for fried (cauliflower) rice and the ilk and stumbled…

Cauliflower Crust Pizza {gluten-free}


I have two heads of cauliflower in my fridge both of which have been in there a little too long. So of course I turned to Pinterest for ideas to make good use of the cauliflower and one of the first pictures I stumbled upon was a picture of pizza made with cauliflower crust. Pizza…

Cauliflower, Cheddar and Asiago Soup


This week it’s supposed to be in the high 80s, much like last year in early May, if I remember correctly. This weekend, however, it was classic Portland weather. A little cold, a little rainy. Perfect weather for soup. The soup I made this past weekend is inspired by my cousin. She sent me a…

Roasted Cauliflower with Turmeric and Sea Salt


The first time I ever had cauliflower was last summer. I had it twice: in Chicken Cauliflower Maglobeh and roasted in my oven. The Maglobeh was so good as a whole that I couldn’t make any judgements about the fried cauliflower other than it was kind of mushy. The roasted cauliflower was OK, but not something…

Roasted Cauliflower


I’ve now made roasted cauliflower twice. OK. The first time someone made it for me. So let me rephrase that. I’ve now eaten roasted cauliflower twice. (That’s twice the amount of cauliflower in the span of one week that I’ve had in my entire life.) I’ve had it roasted with crushed red chili flakes as…

Chicken Cauliflower Maglobeh


One of the best things about blogging about what you eat is reading about (and drooling over) what fellow bloggers eat. The other day Procrastinator Cook posted her recipe for Cauliflower Chicken Maglobeh. It was perfect timing for me to read the blog as I had just purchased cauliflower and had just pulled a whole chicken from my freezer to…
