The OM Project!

The OM Project

I probably should have waited for Tuesday to post this one up, but every day is a good day for a taco, especially when it’s a healthy one! I love the color contrast of the purple, green, and orange of these butternut squash tacos.

Feel free to get creative with the dressings too: green goddess, lemon dill, or even a shawarma sauce would work.

Try to pick out a whole grain tortilla that you enjoy instead of those plain paper-like white ones, or if you’re feeling up to it, you can give making cauliflower tortillas a try.

Kung Pao Cauliflower

The OM Project.

The OM Project

This recipe by Circus Gardener’s Kitchen is similar to the spicy cauliflower wings I posted up a few weeks back. Treating cauliflower like little bites of chicken, you can season them, bake them, and grill them exactly the same way. Think of this as healthy General Gao’s and stick little tooth picks in them.

Ingredients

1 head of cauliflower, broken into florets, each about 1½-2 cm
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 red chillies, seeds in, finely chopped
2 cm piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
4 spring onions, sliced, including green parts
50 g unsalted peanuts, dry fried and roughly chopped
2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
50 g organic cornflour

125 ml roasted peanut oil (use groundnut oil if not available)
2 star anise
1 tsp Szechuan peppercorns
1 tsp dried chillies
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

for the marinade

100 ml organic…
