Garlic Ginger Kale Bowl With Cauliflower Rice

It’s full on holiday season, which means food is everywhere; Thanksgiving leftovers all weekend, treats in the office, buffets at holiday parties (mine had a candy bar, ice cream bar and cupcake station), wine at countless happy hours. It’s all so overwhelmingly bad for you (sugary, fattening, delicious), so when I’m weeknight cooking this time of year, I crave simple, healthy meals. I love the idea of one bowl dinners – I’ve been making things like pork and butternut squash stew and quick pho – and this simple garlic ginger kale bowl couldn’t be easier to throw together after work.

 

Simply chop up some garlic and ginger, stir-fry with some ground meat or a can of beans, add kale and voila; flavorful, healthy comforting garlic ginger kale bowl. The most complicated aspect of this dish is the cauliflower rice (which is not complicated at all – just throw in a food processor and pop in the oven for 20 minutes), but any grain like brown rice or quinoa would work well. I just like the idea of putting vegetables on vegetables.

Healthy Baked Onion Rings (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

Healthy Baked Onion Rings

Growing up a Jets fan (I know, I know), I’ve been programmed to hate the Patriots. And since moving to Boston, I’ve had a good time watching Pats games and hoping for New England loss. But now that the Pats are out too, the fun is over. So, of course, I look forward to the food. Super Bowl food is notoriously unhealthy, so every year I challenge myself to make healthy game day food that actually tastes good. Usually, this doesn’t mean making food that is a low-calorie version of something else; it means making something that is inherently healthy and delicious as is (think pastured bacon wrapped dates).

 

But after having onion rings at our new burger place this weekend, Josh suggested I try a lightened up, gluten-free and vegan version for Sunday. And this recipe fits the bill.
