Menu planning – 9-18-16

Hello! It’s been a while since I have done a meal planning post! It’s all about quick and easy meals these days. In case you need some extra inspiration this week, I’m linking up with Laura and!

Sunday – Black bean tacos 

Monday – Easy Mediterranean collard wraps and roasted sweet potatoes

Tuesday – Butternut squash soup, veggies and hummus and Paleo dinner rolls (new)

Wednesday – Veggie chili nachos

Thursday – Stuffed peppers, roasted potatoes

Friday – Pizza night! Everyone likes to choose their own toppings, but I will be making a cauliflower/almond meal crust. Recipe below.

Saturday – Jamaican Chickpea Stew – over potatoes for the non-rice lovers 🙂

I also made some nut/date caramel sauce for dipping apples! Yum!

Cauliflower Crust

 3 cups riced cauliflower

¼ tsp. sea salt

½ tsp. dried basil

½ tsp. dried oregano

½ tsp. garlic powder

4 T. almond meal

1 T. nutritional yeast

1 T. olive oil

2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. Cut off the florets. Pulse in your food processor for about 30 seconds, until you get cauliflower “rice.” Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover. Microwave for 4 minutes. You can also steam or water saute. Dump cooked cauliflower onto a clean towel and cool. Once cauliflower is cool, wrap it up in the dish towel and wring the water out of it. You want to squeeze out as much water as possible.

Put cauliflower into a bowl. Now add spices, almond meal, nutritional yeast, olive oil. Stir the mixture to incorporate all the ingredients. Now add your egg and mix again.

Once mixed together, form the dough into a crust onto parchment paper about 1/4 inch thick.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until it starts to turn golden brown and the edges crisp up. Flip and bake another 5 minutes. The edges should start to be crispy brown but not too much because you will pop it back in the oven after adding the toppings.

Add your sauces & toppings (I recommend already cooked toppings)  and place back in the oven. Cook for another 5 minutes until the toppings are warm.

What’s for dinner at your house this week? Do you have any non-rice lovers at your house?
