Recipe #15: Roasted Cauliflower and Kale Spaghetti with Toasted Almonds

Lindsay's Cooking Adventures

Right off the bat, you may have noticed one change I made to the recipe – fettuccine pasta instead of spaghetti. I picked up the wrong box at the store by mistake but figured it would work the same way.

I will say that this recipe had a lot of steps and different components to keep an eye on, so I had to really pay attention and stay organized. The recipe is well-written though and everything comes together at the end to make a yummy pasta dish.

I love roasted vegetables so this kale and cauliflower were perfect for me. The cauliflower came out of the oven super tender but slightly caramelized and the kale was nice and crispy. It was hard to stop myself from picking at them because they were so good on their own, they would be a great side dish.

The flavours on the pasta were…

Stuffed Peppers

Jana Cooks

I think I should add “Vegetable Stuffer” to my CV.

Not only do I love stuffing butternuts, mushrooms, squashes, aubergines, peppers and whatever else I can hollow out and fill with something yummy — I’m pretty damn good at it, too!

Over this past weekend I indulged in a great sales offer that gave me a big bag of green peppers for next to nothing, so I decided to stuff them all last night.

Who’s hungry? Vincent, Roan and I. This recipe serves three — with the possibility of some leftover mince filling that can be used in a pasta or jaffle the next day.

Ingredients

  • 5 green peppers
  • 1 kg lean beef mince
  • 200 g carrot, cut into thin ribbons
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 50 g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • handful of coriander, finely chopped
  • 5 green onion sprigs, finely chopped
  • 1 can tomato & onion mix…

Vegetarian Borscht

Of Goats and Greens

While beet soup (Eastern European Borscht) is sometimes made with beef broth/stock, this one is made with a veggie broth.  And, since I didn’t have the regular purple beets in my fridge, the color on this one will not be the intense purple you might be used to, but it will be the red of the tomato sauce.  Never the matter — use the beets you desire!

This week, I’m co-hosting Angie’s Fiesta Friday 119 with  Ahila @ A Taste of Sri Lankan Cuisine.  If you are not sure what a link party is, it’s a way to network with people of common interest — in this case, tasty home-made food and recipes — and if you blog yourself, it’s a way to increase interested visitors dropping by,  who are curious about new foods…

Ham & Harvest Green Tomato Soup

Of Goats and Greens

Contains:  Nightshades.  Is: Grain-free, gluten-free, Paleo, Whole30.

recipe, soup, ham, harvest, garden, green tomatoesSoup’s On!

Well, as any gardener or homesteader knows (those who live at higher latitudes, that is) into every year a killing frost must fall.

I had a very prolific cherry tomato plant – just one, actually.  For future reference (at least on my part) it was an indeterminate Husky Cherry Red, and I’d grow this again.  I received a lot of ripe red fruits over the past month or so, and there were many more green ones when the killing frost swept down and told me, sort of like Bugs Bunny, “That’s All, Folks!”

Scratched my noodle, and decided to turn some of the crop into soup.

Note, this recipe is extremely flexible.  Whatever you have to hand may become a major ingredient here.  All quantities listed in this recipe is approximate.  This is about using what…
