February Recipe Roundup

Hi there!

I’ve finally admitted that right now does not seem to be a blogging time for me. I’m not sure why, and I’m sure it will pass. Maybe in a few days, maybe in a few weeks. But having recipes over my head that I haven’t posted is stressing me out a little. Partly because I don’t take notes of what I change in recipes, so the longer I go without posting, the more likely I am to forget what I did differently to make it worthy of a recipe to post for you! Which brings me to the second reason it’s stressing me out. I want to share these recipes for you and I don’t want to keep them from you any longer! So here is a round up of what I’ve been eating lately, along with with the original recipes and a note if I’ve changed anything. Enjoy and I will be back before you know it! 

  1. Cauliflower and Quinoa Burger (Adapted from Pinch of Yum)
    • FINALLY a veggie burger without beans. I didn’t change much to the base of these burgers, they stayed together well though I ate mine bun-less. I made my own chipotle mayo and a different version of the green sauce but a MUST try. Cauliflower and Quinoa Burger
  2. Cauliflower Pizza Crust (Adapted from Buzzfeed)
    • Heart-shaped not required. Whatever you do squeeze out any excess liquid after step four (after it has cooled slightly) and DON’T use fresh mozzarella. It’ll get soggy 🙂 You can totally pick this up like a regular slice of pizza though I won’t lie, you’ll notice the difference. Cauliflower Pizza Crust
  3. Quinoa Stuffed Pepper Soup with Sausage meatballs (Adapted from Oh Sweet Basil)
    • This one I followed until the last step when I threw everything in the crockpot including uncooked quinoa with a little extra chicken broth for about an hour and a half on high until quinoa was cooked. Quinoa Stuffed Pepper Soup with Sausage meatballs
  4. Zoodle and Onion Noodle Soup with Pesto (Adapted from Inspiralized)
    • This one I left out the sausage (but only because Kels and I had this with the roasted veggie grilled cheese) and spiralized red onion with the zucchini. I also used this jar of pesto quinoa I found Trader Joe’s, however regular store bought pesto would definitely do! Zoodle and Onion Noodle Soup with Pesto
  5. “Baked Ziti” Zoodles (adapted from Food E File)
    • This one I used homemade sauce and turkey sausage, I also mixed in some veggie pasta with the zoodles just to add bulk to the dish. "Baked Ziti" Zoodles
  6. Quinoa, Guac and Eggs (Adapted from Simply Quinoa)
    • This one I used homemade salsa, left out the kale and added pepper jack cheese 😉 Quinoa, Guac and Eggs
  7. Sweet Potato, Spinach and Chicken Sausage Bake (Adapted from Pinch of Yum)
    • This one I subbed spinach for the kale because that’s what I had and made the cheese sauce gluten free by using cornstarch (though I’d recommend following the original recipe for the roux!) Sweet Potato, Spinach and Chicken Sausage Bake
  8. Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl (Adapted from Pinch of Yum)
    • This is a buildable bowl, you can add whatever you like… I used spiralized cucumbers, quinoa, red onion, avocado, feta and this wonderful roasted red pepper sauce based on the one in the recipe. I left out the almonds and added in some balsamic vinegar and olive oil so I didn’t need a dressing for my bowl. Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl
  9. Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce over Zoodles
    • I took this from the red pepper sauce in the above post. Pureed roasted red peppers, some greek yogurt, parmesan cheese, feta, a little lemon juice and a crumbled turkey sausage link over raw zoodles. Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce over Zoodles
  10. Zoodle Carbonara with Chicken (Adapted from Cafe Delites)
    • This one I followed pretty closely as I’d never made carbonara before. Bacon + zoodles meant I needed to add chicken so I wasn’t starving 5 seconds laterZoodle Carbonara with Chicken
  11.  BLT Salad with Avocado (Adapted from Skinny Taste)
    • This one I followed closely except for the dressing which I subbed all of the mayo out for greek yogurt. I also added chicken. BLT Salad with Avocado

That was a lot of recipes. But I feel SOOO much better now. <3
