Easy, random and delicious!



So, I wasnt in the mood to make  big dinner tonight. Last night I made cauliflower Alfredo (recipe to be posted soon). It's Monday and I was too tired to go to the grocery store so I made do. 

Roasted cauliflower, quick bread, guacamole and sautéed tempeh with sweet chili sauce. Best thing is, they went together beautifully! 



Roasted cauliflower 

1 head cauliflower
Everything seasoning, to taste
Olive oil

Place cauliflower on a baking sheet and drizzle just a little oil over the whole thing. Sprinkle seasoning all over, to taste (I used trader joe's everything seasoning but you can use whatever you want really)

Bake on 375' for about 30 minutes. 

Sautéed tempeh

1 package tempeh
Oil
2 to 3 T sweet chili sauce

Break apart the tempeh into bite size pieces and place in pan that is on medium heat with a little oil. Get each side goldenl brown and then pour on the sauce. Sauté until pieces get a little darker and glazed on each side.

Quick bread 

3 C flour (1C whole wheat flour)
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 T everything seasoning 
2 to 3 C water 
1 T veggie oil 

Mix dry ingredients then add when. Add water one cup at a time while mixing with a spoon until it clumps. Then knead the rest with your hand. Roll out dough on parchment until it's the size of a baking sheet. Bake at 350' for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. 

Guacamole 

2 ripe avocados 
1/3 C nutritional yeast
1 t salt
1 t pepper 
2 t everything seasoning (sense a theme here?)
1 small package of cherry tomatoes, cut in half

Mash avocados together first. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients.
