Broccoli & Quinoa Medley  


Here is another one!!! Super easy, fun and healthy (in moderation lol). I found this broccoli casserole recipe on http://www.eatgood4life.com and decided to make it my own. I was truly amazed at how good and tasty this was and new you would love it! You know it’s also a plus when your toddler loves it! 👌🏾

Ingredients:

9-12 oz of broccoli (I used frozen)

2 1/2 cups of uncooked Quinoa
2 cups of Mozerella cheese

1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese

14 oz can of Swanson’s reduced sodium chicken broth

14 oz of water (I used the Swanson’s can)

3 stalks of green onions

2 cups of spinach (Again, I used frozen)

1 tsp. of oregano 

1 tsp. of garlic powder

Put frozen broccoli in a bowl and cook for about 3-4 minutes and set aside. 

Put Quinoa and chopped green onions in a 9×13 baking dish. 

Chicken broth and water mixed in bowl for taste testing (I did not add salt because the broth has enough, however you can add salt to your liking).  

Chicken broth, 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese, spinach, garlic and oregano added to the dish and ready to bake at 350 degrees in the oven for about 30 minutes. After 30 min. You will notice the Quinoa is fully cooked and you can now stir in the broccoli and add the remainder of cheese to cover the top (I sprinkled additional Parmesan too)! Broil for about 3 minutes and voilà! 

Good to the last drop!😜

 

Makes 5-6 servings. 

Cauliflower Crusted Pizza


So hear is another fun and tasty recipe that’s healthy! I had never eaten cauliflower prior to a year a go. It looked like broccoli that had not gotten its color in and I had no interest in eating it, much less mixing it with anything else!

Yet, when I found out that I could make a pizza crust out of cauliflower, I was intrigued more than anything to find out how it tasted once adding my favorite toppings! Of course after making it a few times and looking at other recipes, I was able to create one to call my own. No lye, there is work involved, however it’s worth it when it’s time to eat!😉

What’s Needed:

1 Head of Cauliflower 

1 Cup of Parmesan Shredded Cheese

1 Egg

Blender

Bowl (for mixing)

Parchment Paper

Serves 2-2.5 people (pictured above recipe was doubled to feed 4-4.5people).  

Begin by getting a head of cauliflower and chopping it into pieces small enough to add to your blender. Once cauliflower is well blended, you take a clean wash towel and put half in the towel at a time and roll it long ways. Once rolled, ring out as much water as possible from the cauliflower. 


As you can see from above, this is what happens when I mistankly add my egg before ringing out my cauliflower😂). Rung out nearly 3/4 of water (and egg). Re-ring if necessary to get as much water out as possible. 
In a bowl mix egg to with Parmesan cheese in a bowl. 
Mix egg and Parmesan mixture with cauliflower by hand or spoon. You can add a few shakes of bottled basil and oregano seasoning as I did. 
I pressed out the cauliflower into a shape I wanted and used my hands to pinch up the sides and lastly used a fork for the edge design. 
Bake for about 20 min. or until gold brown as desired on parchment paper. 
Check out that crust (please know that the crust is nothing like real pizza crust and may be a little floppy when done. 

Add whatever sauce and topping you like and bake for an additional 15-20 min. This was a barbecue chicken and spinach pizza!😊
