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.

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.

Cream of Broccoli Soup - My Whole Food Life

I used almond milk in my recipe, but you could also use full fat coconut milk for an extra rich texture.  Another option would be to top this with a cashew cream.  Yum!  This cream of broccoli soup is vegan and gluten free.  I added some nutritional yeast for a slight cheesy flavor.  I cooked this on the stove top, but you can also cook this soup in the crock pot as well.
