The title isn’t very clear – it sounds like nut butter – which this is not.
It is a recipe for mashed potatoes, without any potatoes.
Clean, cut and cook until soft the florets from one head of cauliflower.
Add a heaping tablespoon or two of partially ground cashews for creaminess.
Add butter, plain yogurt, herbs and spices to taste.
Oh! And my husband just told me that he uses a little nutritional yeast in this dish, too!
Serve a healthier dinner – and a delicious one, too!
… and other veggies from the sea!
If you have never used various seaweeds in cooking, you might imagine something stinky or slimy. Not usually.
Although we are not on a sodium-restrictive diet, we substitute granulated sea veggies (above) for salt in almost all of our cooking. It shakes out as a slightly coarse powder and tastes like salt, unless you use a lot of it – and then you’ll get a fishy flavor, but it really isn’t unpleasant.
And roasted nori is wonderful cut into thin strips and added to stews, salads, deviled eggs, sandwiches, or soups.
I especially enjoy roasted seaweed plain, right out of the package – but that might be a culinary quirk of mine …
Anyway, this is the seaweed that is used in making sushi, but you can keep things simple and roll plain rice in a sheet of the roasted nori for a mineral-rich side dish.
Have a good time inventing your own favorite dishes with delicious and healthy veggies from the sea!
Although April has remained a tad chilly for many folks, the general consensus is that warmer weather really will return and it will once again be time for long walks, vintage baseball games, and picnics.
One of the easiest grab-and-go sandwiches is the tried and true hoagie.
Yes, it can be called a sub, torpedo, grinder, hero … but the basic premise is the same:
and the all important … Meats and Cheeses
And tah dah!
Grab some fruit, chips and a beverage of choice, toss an old blanket into the back of the car, and take off for the afternoon.
This is not only a post about fast foods, but a fast, AKA brief, post because I am in dire need of a relatively early night since I have an early morning ahead.
So – here are my Top Three go-to meals when time is melting away like homemade butter on freshly ironed waffles!
#1 Yup – eggs. I know I seem to post about these ovoid wonders all too frequently, but they are fast, protein rich and delicious no matter what you do to them. I prefer to scramble one or two then top with thinly sliced dill Havarti cheese and/or chopped fresh tomatoes; reheated, leftover veggies from the night before, or quickly sauteed minced onion. It is also nice to tuck this eggcellent concoction into pita bread, or between two slices of toast.
#2 Although this happens to be a picture of those D is for Daffodils cupcakes, just pretend that they are muffins – and the Allbran with applesauce muffins, at that. I really do like healthy muffins – I’ll add spelt, oatmeal, whole wheat, whatever I have on hand – and then freeze them for a quick breakfast. Cut in half, microwaved or popped in the toaster oven, then spread with some PB & J, or cream cheese – tah dah. Out the door I go!
#3 I have to admit that I am no stranger to carry-out, dining-in, and when possible … delivery! As much as I love to cook, as much as I recognize and applaud the merit of eating real food from real ingredients – there are just some days and some times when you do what you’ve gotta do.
And if you get fries with that, well, as long as they are really crispy, I’m not totally opposed to the idea.
