I used pecans in this recipe, but walnuts would be good as well.  I think even sunflower seeds may work for a nut free option.  This easy no bake recipe could be made ahead of time so you have on less thing to cook on the day of your holiday party.

Sweet and Sour Cauliflower Stir Fry

OMG this Sweet and Sour Cauliflower Stir Fry is so good!  I am a big fan of sweet and sour sauce.  Sadly, most store bought brands are loaded with sugar and other additives.  So I had to make my own and boy did it come out good!  Actually, I can’t take total credit for this one.  I came up with the idea for a sweet and sour cauliflower stir fry, but my husband Marcus created the dish.  Some other creations of his are my Peanut Noodle Stir Fry and my Sweet Potato Chili.  He is so much better at the savory recipes.  I served this over brown rice, but it would be equally as good over quinoa.

Sweet and Sour Cauliflower - My Whole Food Life

This Sweet and Sour Cauliflower stir fry is vegan and gluten free.  You could probably serve it over cauliflower rice for a grain free option.  I kept the veggies and the rice in separate containers in the fridge so I could add the amount of rice I wanted.  I ate 2 servings of the veggies and only a small portion of the rice.  I can see the sauce working in a lot of other recipes too!

Gluten Free Gingerbread Pancakes

I have the perfect holiday breakfast for you.  Gluten Free Gingerbread Pancakes.  I already have a recipe for gingerbread pancakes on the blog, but it’s not gluten free.  So I slightly tweaked that recipe to come up with these gluten free gingerbread pancakes.  This would be the perfect breakfast for Christmas morning.  To make things easier, you could mix the dry ingredients the night before.  Then it’s super quick to pull these together.  Imagine how great your house will smell too!  I added chocolate chips to mine for an extra special treat.
