Curried Split Pea Cauliflower Stew


Curried Split Pea Cauliflower Stew This winter in Florida has been unseasonably chilly. No, we didn't experience a true "polar vortex" like many parts of the country, and never really needed to dig ourselves out from a snowstorm. Nonetheless, there were many days of "sweater weather", with temperatures dipping into the 40s and 50s. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to break out a stew recipe that I hadn't made in a couple of years. This one is loaded with flavor and nutrition. There's the cruciferous cauliflower, the leafy-green spinach, the high-fiber legumes, the disease-fighting garlic and onion from the [...]

Cauliflower Sun Dried Tomato Mac N “Cheese”


Cauliflower Sun Dried Tomato Mac N "Cheese" After a week of eating that didn't include as many vegetables as I usually prefer to consume, I stopped by the market on a Saturday morning once I finished up at the gym. I figured it would be good to replenish my body with some highly nutritious produce and picked up some baby spinach and a head of cauliflower.

Cauliflower Oyster Mushroom Tacos


Cauliflower Oyster Mushroom Tacos There may be more than a few recipes for tacos that turn up on the Vibrant Beat. After all, my family loves tacos! Who doesn't?! And tacos don't just mean a hard shell stuffed with beef, cheese, sour cream, and salsa. The world of plant-based eating has enlightened me to the diverse variety of delicious foods that can be used to stuff a corn tortilla! Some of my favorites include tempeh tacos , and tacos stuffed with "meat" made from walnuts and mushrooms, riced cauliflower, roasted chickpeas, or quinoa and lentils. And why do tacos have to [...]

Nacho Cauliflower Cheese


Nacho Cauliflower Cheese One of the most difficult things for many people when transitioning to a plant-based diet is cutting back on cheese. Cheese is one of those comfort foods that is not only addictive, but is found on almost everything we eat in a traditional American diet. Unfortunately cheese is loaded with saturated fat. In fact, cheese and pizza are the two top contributors of saturated fat in the United States! I have not tried many store-bought vegan cheeses that I've loved, although some do seem to be getting better. Many of the pizza shops in our area [...]
