38 x 38 - 12 New Recipes (#5, 6, and 7)

I've been looking for new recipes to incorporate into my new eating plan and I have a few great ones to share with you:

Roasted Cabbage Steaks
I got this idea from Pinterest and then adapted it just a little. Look here for the original recipe. These are my very minor changes:

  • Slice the cabbage into 1" thick steaks. 
  • Brush lightly with olive oil (I used about a 1/2 tsp on each "steak"). 
  • Rub the steak with fresh garlic, sprinkled on salt, pepper, and lemon pepper. 
  • Bake at 400 degrees in the oven for 30 minutes. 
These were delicious and super easy. Rob even liked them and he doesn't care much for cabbage. 

Cauliflower Bread Sticks
Another pinterest recipe! This was delicious - I'll definitely make it again. I will say don't expect it to be exactly like breadsticks obviously but still wonderful and delicious! 
1 cup raw grated cauliflower 
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 cup shredded light mozzarella
garlic salt and italian seasonings to taste

Preheat over to 350. Mix cauliflower, 1/4 cup egg substitute, and 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella together in a bowl until combined. Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment and lightly spray with Pam. Pour mixture into pan about 1-1/2 inch deep. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until set. Lift the edges of the parchment and place bread with parchment onto cookie sheet. Carefully use a spatula to lift the edges of the "dough" off the parchment and flip the dough. Bake for an additional 15 minutes at 450 degrees. Take out of oven and using a pizza cutter, slice strips through and separate slightly. Spring with seasonings and the remainder of the cheese. Bake at 450 for 10 more minutes until cheese is melted. 

Lemon Parmesan Kale Salad
Surprise, surprise...another Pinterest find! This was soooooo good too. Definitely worth trying:

3 cups chopped fresh kale
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp dried thyme
pint of salt and pepper
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/4 cup toasted bread crumbs (optional, I obviously left them out because of my program)

In a large bowl, whish together olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, salt and pepper. Add Kale and parmesan  (and breadcrumbs if using). Toss until kale is coated. Serve immediately.

Three delicious veggie recipes worth trying!!
