Things have been pretty repetitive in the ol’ kitchen lately. I’ve been on a “clean out the pantry” kick, so there’s been a lot of repeats and unexciting meals being thrown together. But there have been a few new and exciting things definitely worth sharing.
We went to a small party on Superbowl Sunday last month. I knew in advance there would be a couple of plant-based-friendly options, but I made and brought a couple more. The meatballs were just Trader Joe’s meatballs that I threw into a crock pot with grape jelly and barbecue sauce. They were good, but y’all, these cauliflower wings from Sexy Vegan were CRAZY good! I will be making these for any and every tailgating/finger food event I ever attend ever again forever. Yes, forever.
I had also flagged this recipe for LA-Style Chimichurri Tacos in my Chloe’s Kitchen cookbook when I first got it for Christmas and made it recently too. I guess the way I assembled it I can’t really call it a taco, but whatever. It was still freaking delicious, so let’s roll with it. (After I snapped this pic, I rolled it up like a burrito.)
Bianca at The Friendly Fig totally showed out on this Crockpot Ginger & Cauliflower Curry recipe. This was perfection. Chop some stuff up and throw it in a pot? Yep, I’m a fan already. It was absolutely delicious. But I atleast quadrupled the curry in it because I’m super adventurous like that.
And finally, I don’t even remember how I stumbled upon this recipe for Black Bean and Cilantro Lime Quinoa Stuffed Peppers, but I’m damn glad I did! I froze half of the stuffing when I first made these, and I’ve got the other half thawing out for tonight. Good stuff, I say… good stuff.
