With Memorial Day around the corner, we are definitely in cookout season.  Bean salads are a staple at every family gathering of ours.  This easy mixed bean salad is so great because it calls for simple ingredients you probably already have on hand!

I used Sprouts brand Extra Virgin Olive oil and Sprouts brand Balsamic Vinegar. Did you know they have their own website dedicated to their private label products?

Coconut Curry Cauliflower

I love my veggies, but cauliflower has always been one that I avoided.  That is, until I made this Coconut Curry Cauliflower!  Coconut and curry were made for each other and the flavors go so well in this easy side dish.  If you wanted to make this a complete meal, you could serve it over rice or quinoa.  I also think the additions of some greens, like spinach, would be delicious.  I used the full fat canned coconut cream to make this dish extra rich in flavor and texture.

This coconut curry cauliflower is super easy and only contains a small amount of ingredients.  It’s vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  I hope you love it as much as we did.

Healthy Kidney Bean Pasta

We went to Disney World a few weeks ago.  Before we left, Marcus made this delicious Healthy Kidney Bean Pasta to help use up some of the stuff in the pantry.  I am not really a pasta person myself, but I thought this was awesome!  We used gluten free brown rice pasta, but I am sure any pasta will work. If you love easy dinner ideas check out this post too.  Some of Marcus’s other creations have been the sweet potato chili and the peanut noodle stir fry.
