Muhammara Roasted Veggie Bowl

Muhammara Roasted Veggie Bowl

Thank you for all your sweet comments on Monday’s post. You all sure know how to comfort a girl! Even when that girl is being a self-indulgent whiner. Oops!

I’m going to take my complaining down a notch. As I think we all know, Sunday anxiety is way worse than the actual work week. So next week, feel free to give me a virtual slap if I let out a peep about my busy schedule!

Still, I appreciate Monday’s virtual hugs. You are all way too sweet, and I can’t believe my luck that we get to hang out and talk about food together all the time. Seriously!

Muhammara Roasted Veggie Bowl

We are still enjoying the double batch of muhammara I made last weekend, and this has been one of my favorite combinations: a bowl of wheat berries and roasted veggies topped with a big dollop of that rich spread. It’s not exactly earth-shattering (more like fridge-emptying!), but it’s still high on the deliciousness scale.

BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

I hope you’re as happy as I am to see yet another cauliflower recipe!

I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff lately. I made Asian Orange Cauliflower for dinner last week, followed by this pizza twice this weekend. I’m officially a huge cauliflower fan.

BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

When I say cauliflower pizza, you may assume that this is one of those gluten-free cauliflower crust deals. Not so. I’ve never tried a cauliflower crust recipe, mostly because I sure do love picking up fresh pizza dough from Whole Foods when I’m too lazy to make it myself. Given the recent cauliflower craze in my life, though, I’m sure a cauliflower crust is in my future.

But for now, it’s any kind of crust you like (feel free to double up on cauliflower!), topped with roasted cauliflower that’s been smothered in barbecue sauce. I’m relatively certain that nothing with barbecue sauce has ever come out of my kitchen before, but blogging is great for expanding the horizons like that. Also, Nate sure didn’t voice any complaints about this pizza appearing twice in one weekend, so I have a feeling the barbecue flavor is here to stay around these parts.

Asian Orange Cauliflower

Asian Orange Cauliflower

I usually reserve words like “insane,” “unreal,” and “magical” for creations like chocolate pecan butter, ice cream with bourbon in it, chocolate peanut butter cookies, etc. But today I’m about to use those words to describe a cauliflower dish… oh yes I am.

I recently made the discovery that cauliflower can be used in place of meat in all your old favorite Asian dishes. I tried it out first with the cauliflower coconut masala, and it was a magical. Also, though I came up with the idea independently, I totally wasn’t the first person to do so. That’s what happens when you have a unique idea in the year 2014… you Google it and realize that 2.1 million other people had the same idea, starting about 1000 years ago. Sigh.

Then I realized that, sure, cauliflower might be a typical component of Indian dishes, but it also works in practically everything else, too. Up until now I had considered tofu as the most logical vegetarian substitute. And I don’t always love the texture of tofu, so I pushed most of the chicken- and beef-based Asian recipes I knew to the back of my mind.

But cauliflower opens everything back up again, and with a new and improved texture. Can I get an amen from my fellow veggie texture lovers?
