Creamy Mushroom Zucchini Pasta

Sometimes the greatest meals come about when you are trying to use up leftovers.  That is exactly what happened with this Creamy Mushroom Zucchini Pasta.  Have you tried zucchini pasta?  It’s so good and much lower in carbs.  I use my Spiralizer to make my zucchini pasta.  I just love that thing!  You can make pasta out of all kinds of veggies.  I have made pasta from sweet potatoes, beets and cucumbers so far.  So good!

I went a little overboard on the sauce with mine. :)  However, I decreased it in the recipe, so you shouldn’t have the same issue.  Either way this is delish!  This is a super easy recipe that only takes a few minutes to make.  If you wanted to boost the protein, you can add in whatever protein you like.

Easy Sesame Cauliflower

My husband Marcus has been wanting to do a Sesame Cauliflower recipe for a while now.  Well he finally did and I am here to share this Easy Sesame Cauliflower recipe with you!  Think sesame chicken minus the chicken.  This stuff was really good!  I could see this sesame cauliflower sauce being used on all kinds of things.  Like in a stir fry or as a veggie dip.  Or even a marinade.  I love recipes with multiple uses.  Don’t you?  Kind of like my Thai Peanut Sauce.

You can add all kinds of veggies into this recipe.   I could see snow peas, broccoli and red bell peppers being great additions.  Also mushrooms.  You can make the sauce and saute right away, or you can let the cauliflower and other veggies marinate for an hour or two.  I will definitely try the marinade next time!

Cheesy Vegan Quinoa Bites

You guys!!  My husband made the most amazing Cheesy Vegan Quinoa Bites!  There are tons of quinoa bite recipes on the web, but almost ALL of them contain cheese.  So he set out to make some Cheesy Vegan Quinoa Bites.  He totally outdid himself with this one!!  This is definitely a recipe we will make often in our house! He is just so much better at the savory dishes than I am.  A few of his other recipes are very popular on the blog.  Like the Sweet Potato Chili and the Pumpkin Enchiladas.

He made these in jumbo sized muffin pans.  However, I HIGHLY suggest making them in standard sized muffin pans.  I will mention the cooking time for both versions in the recipe.  These are just perfect. They are crispy on the outside and a little gooey in the middle.  These cheesy vegan quinoa bites are also gluten free in addition to being vegan. :)
