Roasted Cauliflower with Yellow Curry Sauce

Roasted Cauliflower with Yellow Curry Sauce

What’s the saying – “brown food tastes better”? I’m definitely taking that to heart with today’s recipe. Brown on brown on brown! It makes for some humble pictures, but some reeeeally tasty veggies.

This roasted cauliflower dish is another restaurant recreation, and – totally unintentionally – from the same restaurant as Tuesday’s recipe. It’s our favorite neighborhood place (Avenues Bistro on Third, if you’re in Salt Lake!) and, um, I guess we’ve been eating there a lot lately? I’ve learned to always order the special if it’s vegetarian. It’s always to die for, even if the name doesn’t sound too exciting. I mean, roasted cauliflower with yellow curry sauce – boring, right? Nope nope nope, wrong!

Mushroom Larb (Thai Mushroom Lettuce Wraps)

Mushroom Larb

Lately…

I cannot stay awake in shavasana for.the.life.of.me.

I’m considering making a Warby Parker purchase and doing the glasses thing. (Thoughts???)

I can’t believe that I graduated from college 6 years ago this weekend.

It feels like summer and I am getting excited for summer travel plans!

I registered for a July half marathon and am hoping to PR by dropping some lbs. We’ll see!

Thai Pineapple Pizza

Thai Pineapple Pizza

Hello hello, and happy Cinco de Mayo! We are celebrating with Thai food. Obviously.

I mean, I already did the tequila thing, because I figure everyone celebrated Cinco de Mayo this weekend. Right? Now it’s Monday, and tequila on a Monday is probably a bad idea. Unless you’re in college, in which case you might not care what’s a good or bad idea when it comes to tequila. But if you’re not in college, Monday is the time to get back to healthy eating and all that jazz after a weekend that maybe involved a bit of tequila, but probably involved a lot more adult stuff like waking up early and running errands. So, Cinco de Mayo, adult-Monday-Thai-style. That’s what we’re doing today.

Have I lost you yet? Just follow along… you won’t be sorry.

Mango Sticky Rice

Mango Sticky Rice

You know you’ve entered yuppie status when you can’t resist the Whole Foods one-day sale on champagne mangoes, and end up coming home with an entire crate.

Mango Sticky Rice

This happened last Friday, when I ran into Whole Foods for a “few things” (always) on my way home from work, and left with $9 of mangoes. Such a sucker.

But $9 for 14 mangoes! I was both delighted with the deal and in disbelief that I was buying a crate of something just because it was on sale. Also, have I really entered the phase of my life where I stock up on whole crates of expensive produce? I might be, like, 10 years too young for that. So many emotions brought on by these mangoes. Plus, how do you use up 14 mangoes?

Mango Sticky Rice

Luckily,  I found the solution to that last one.

Step 1: make mango sticky rice.

Step 2: devour mango sticky rice.

Step 3: repeat.

I think that should just about cover it.

Thai Red Curry Quinoa Soup

Thai Red Curry Quinoa Soup

Hiya!

Are you surprised that I want to talk about curry today?

Prooobably not. Curry seems to be all that’s on my mind lately – in popcorn, in peanut sauce, and now in soup. What can I say? I <3 curry. And I especially <3 coconutty curry as a spicy base for a veg-filled soup.

Thai Red Curry Quinoa Soup

This soup is a mix between authentic (lemongrass, Thai basil, Thai chilies) and inauthentic (quinoa and kale). I hope you guys are OK with that – I know I am. Mostly, I wanted to use red curry as a base for a soup, but then I quickly realized that I wanted to add quinoa and kale to it. Quinoa and kale happen to be my two favorite soup additions. They add such great texture, and I love that they hold up no matter how many times you reheat the soup. (You know the same isn’t always true if you’ve used, say, noodles and broccoli before.) So curry, quinoa and kale it is! A rockstar combo, if I do say so myself.
