Roasted Fall Vegetables with Pumpkin Seed Oil

  It was a night when I needed to make a relatively fast dinner, but had no idea what I wanted to make.  I stopped at one of the local farm markets and picked up a cauliflower; I decided I would do something with the cauliflower and some of the sweet potatoes from my garden….

Cauliflower and Lentil Tacos

This is probably the strangest use of cauliflower I have tried yet, but, it worked!  The cauliflower-lentil combo was surprisingly tasty. We all ended up making tortilla-less salad combos with it after eating a taco or two. It easily replaced beef and refried beans and was more flavorful and oh so healthy! In addition the…

Roasted Cauliflower Frittata

As I have been saying, I am tickled with the cauliflower in my garden.  So far I have used the cauliflower in Spanish Cauliflower-Chickpea Salad and in a vegetable tempura that really good, but I did not get enough photos of to be able to build a post on it.  Tonight was a frittata I developed last…

Spanish Cauliflower-Chickpea Salad

Cauliflower is ready to be harvested! All 4 of my plants are producing. This is the first time that has happened. Typically I only get heads on 2 of the 4, so I am very happy. This post is about what I did with the first two heads… My two favorite ways to prepare cauliflower…

Pasta with Pan-Seared Cauliflower, Broccoli, Cabbage and Tomato

When you have nice, fresh vegetables, sometimes the best thing to do is a simple pan-sear with…

Cauliflower and Broccoli Farro

Every time I make farro I am surprised a how much I like it and wonder why I don’t make it more often.  Every single time.  But then I forget.  Months go by.  I don’t make farro, a bag sits in the pantry. Then I make a dish using farro and…am surprised by how much…

Saffron Cauliflower and Shrimp Pasta

The cauliflower is in!  All of my plants produced usable heads this spring, with no bugs.  What a nice change. The cool, wet weather this spring has benefitted the early vegetables, but I am not sure what the effect will be on my hot weather veggies.  The tomato plants are not happy and my okra…

Khorest Gol Kalam (Cauliflower Stew) and 10K

I wasn’t sure how my leg would handle the 10K; my calf seemed healed,but my hamstring was very tight since my 1 mile test run on Thursday.  And, it was going to be a trail run with real hills, some steep.  So,my goal was to make it through, and I was going to apply the…
