Ceviche Tostada (Vegan)

Ceviche Tostada (Vegan)

Ceviche Tostadas  are one of my favorite things, but being vegan for a month means I can’t have fish.  Fortunately, I had already come up with a recipe for cauliflower ceviche which was liked by everyone in the family.  Granted, Baker’s Man complained that I shouldn’t call it ceviche because there was no fish or shrimp in the recipe.  I solved that problem when I prepared these Ceviche Tostadas by telling him that we were having tostadas with cauliflower salad on top.  He willingly ate them without complaint because there was no expectation of seafood in the mix.  I call […]

Cauliflower Ceviche

Cauliflower Ceviche (Vegan)

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

This recipe is a great way to get your family to painlessly eat more non starchy vegetables like cauliflower.  Cauliflower has many touted health benefits.  I love cauliflower.  It’s one of my favorite vegetables.  Unfortunately, it’s not my family’s favorite.  I’ve tried slipping mashed cauliflower on the table in place of potatoes, but they weren’t big fans.    Undeterred, I decided to try another approach.  A friend at work was sharing how her housemate had tricked her husband into eating cauliflower mashed into some potatoes.  I decided I had to give it a try. Since I didn’t have a specific recipe, […]
