Don’t you hate it when you want to cook something so you go to find the recipe … but there is none that sounds quite right? That was the problem I had with these two recipes, Cauliflower Rice and Broccoli Salad. Ive made cauliflower rice before but it was not a hit! It turned out too wet, I must have put too much water in it. This time I tried to find a better recipe but I couldn’t find one. So heres mine! Its so ridic easy and you can use whichever veggies you have on hand.
1 head of cauliflower, rinced
3 cloves garlic, diced
salt and pepper to taste
a splash of veggie broth
veggies of choice (I used bella mushrooms and frozen peas)
Pulse the cauliflower in food processor until rough chopped and rice shaped. Heat oil in pan over medium high heat. Saute onion and garlic for about 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Add desired veggies and cook 5 mins. Add cauliflower, stir well, then add veggie broth, sea salt and pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes until cauliflower is slightly tender. Do not over cook!
3 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 orange pepper, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped (optional, Im not a fan)
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup roasted pine nuts (or whatever nut you have)
All of the ingredients go in to a large mixing bowl, stir.
2 cups of Vegenaise
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1tbsp garlic, pressed
red pepper flakes, sea salt, and ground pepper to taste
All of the ingredients go in to a separate mixing bowl, wisk together, and then pour over the Broccoli Salad.
