Sweet & Sour Cauliflower

sweet and sour cauliflowerI must be totally honest here and say one thing about CAULIFLOWER.  It’s not my favorite vegetable.  I’m really not a big fan of it at all.  Although, I do love it if it’s riced or mashed and smeared with a ton of cream and butter.  Other than that, I rarely buy it.  As of late, I’ve had this “problem” with buying things just because they’re on sale.

I was craving a little Chinese food this week… So, this was what I made!  This recipe was adapted from the Dude Diet cookbook.  I swapped a few ingredients out to make it more paleo’ish friendly.  I didn’t use any soy – my husband hates it and honestly I love coconut aminos SO much better than soy sauce.  Once you get all of the veggies and meat cut, you can throw this yummy meal together rather quickly.

Go ditch your Chinese take-out menus and make this at home!   🙂  Continue reading “Orange Chicken”

Faux Fried Rice is my new favorite invention for my homemade Chinese food cravings.  It makes me feel just a bit healthier when I use quinoa.  And the sesame oil gives it that perfect Chinese restaurant fake out that makes you think, “This doesn’t taste homemade!” Continue reading “Faux Fried Rice”

Sweet & Sour Chicken Dinner

As of last night, the chances of me and my husband ever ordering Chinese food to be delivered again are probably slim to none now.  We were really wanting to order out.  Mainly because it was late in the evening, we were tired, and to be perfectly honest – I just didn’t feel like cooking.  Continue reading “Sweet & Sour Chicken Dinner”
