Weekly Recipes and Meal Plan

This Week’s Basket from Milk and Honey Organics Included: Red Potatoes, Yellow Onions, Jonagold Apples, Bosc Pears, Pomegranates, Roma Tomatoes, Shallots, Parisi Farms’ Broccoli Crowns, Mustard Greens and Butternut Squash. My butternut squash so was so adorable – yes, I honestly think produce can be cute. ;) Some baskets had kiwi and lettuce, but I have plenty of lettuce because I had coupons to use from Organic Girl by the end of 2011.

This Week’s Meal Plan: I’m eating a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet, with only 5% of my calories from animal protein, but I did add optional meat, egg, and cheese options for my husband.

Recipe: Cheesy Cauliflower

This is my favorite way to eat cauliflower! And if you have someone in your family that thinks they don’t like cauliflower, try this recipe on them and see if they still don’t like cauliflower. You can eat this as a side dish, on a piece of toast (cauliflower sandwiches), or as a sausage dog topper (Bryan’s idea, and he seemed to really like it). Here it is:

  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-2 shallots, finely sliced (optional)
  • 3 baby bella mushrooms, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 head of cauliflower, roughly chopped (discard stem)
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2-1 c. shredded cheese (sharp cheddar is our favorite for this recipe)

Heat butter and oil in large saute pan over medium low heat. Saute garlic (and shallots and mushrooms, if desired) for 1-2 minutes. Add roughly chopped cauliflower florets. Cook until softened (about 5-7 minutes). Stir in dijon mustard (feel free to add salt and pepper or Lawry’s seasoned salt, if desired). Sprinkle with cheese and continue cooking till cheese is melted. Serve hot.

My Dinner: I added a salad for additional color
