Hey everyone! So I know I haven’t made any posts for months! But I will assure you, I WILL be posting regularly again (hopefully!).
So for a while now, cauliflower has been BIG. Like used as a pizza crust, rice, and even “mashed potato.” I have yet to try the latter two, but I have tried making the pizza – emphasis on the try. The crust didn’t bake through enough so the “pizza” turned out as a sort of mash with pizza toppings. Nonetheless it was absolutely delicious.
So, with the sort of twist-success, I wanted to make a sort of tart made with the same cauliflower mash tart.
- about 3/4 o head of a cauliflower, florets chopped
- 1 small broccoli bunch, florets chopped
- a bit more than 1/4 cup greek yogurt (can substitute same amount of pureed silken tofu or 1 egg)
- a generous pinch of salt
- your choice of spices
- your choice of cooked meat, I used the Beef-less Ground Beef from Trader Joe’s
- 1/4 cup baby carrots, chopped
- 1/2 of a zucchini, chopped (plus slices for topping)
Directions: Preheat your oven to First chop the cauliflower and blend in a food processor until finely ground. Then spritz some water and microwave for 2 minutes. Chop the broccoli and blend. (If you want you can blend the broccoli and cauliflower further to create a paste). Mix in the greek yogurt or egg or tofu. Add the spices. Bake for about 20 minutes or until edges and middle start to brown and harden. Chop the carrots and zucchini and mix in with the meat. Take out the cauliflower base and press the meat filling in. If desired you can add slices of vegetables on top, I like zucchini and/or tomato. Spritz the top with a bit of oil and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the top starts to brown and the zucchini shrinks and shrivels. *Optional: You can top with hummus, or lay some hummus on top of the base and add the filling on top of that.
*By the way, if you’d like please comment any suggestions for future posts. That would be greatly appreciated. 😀 *
