Cauliflower Sauce

Welcome back! You didn’t know this until now, but you are in the middle of the Cauliflower Trilogy! I am using one recipe (the cauliflower purée), modifying it (into this cauliflower sauce), and creating a new recipe (Creamy Spaghetti Squash with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Mushrooms, and Spinach – coming very soon). Fun, right?

Cauliflower Purée

This stuff is so good.. it’s so silky and creamy, I don’t even miss mashed potatoes. I have tried mashed cauliflower and it doesn’t even come close to this cauliflower purée. I think I could eat this whole recipe on my own, all at once. And I could.. because a large head of cauliflower is only 200 calories with tons of potassium, protein, fiber, and vitamin C.

Apple Butternut Squash Soup

Apple Butternut Squash Soup - Kate's Better BiteMy fiancé and I had our three year anniversary last month. (3 years already! Crazy how time flies!) It was our last anniversary before we would be married and would have a new anniversary date.

I have been wanting to go to a restaurant called Recess for about a year now and we finally went there to celebrate. The chef and owner of this restaurant, Greg Hardesty, is one of the best chefs in Indianapolis and I couldn’t wait to try one of his four-course meals.

Did I take pictures of my meal? You betcha.. except I didn’t think of taking pictures until AFTER the first course, so no picture of that wonderful salad. (more…)

A Healthier Broccoli Salad

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is this week already! What are you making for Thanksgiving? If I need to bring something to a gathering, sometimes I like to try out new desserts. This year I decided to bring a broccoli salad as a side dish though because there is usually more than enough sweets at my family’s Thanksgiving. Of course it’s going to be a healthy side dish!

I love broccoli salad, aside from the raisins (yuck)! But I do not like that it’s loaded with mayonnaise and sugar. I came up with a healthier broccoli salad that I can actually feel good about eating.

Healthy Creamy Mushroom Soup

My favorite soups are definitely the thick and creamy kind. Unfortunately they are not healthy! They usually have cream and flour, which I would prefer to leave out of my soup.

So how can you make a creamy soup without all that cream? Use cauliflower to replace the cream! Don’t be alarmed if you do not like the taste of cauliflower; it’s not my favorite vegetable to eat usually but love making cauliflower purée and using it as a thickener or a sauce or even to replace mashed potatoes. The taste is completely transformed once the cauliflower is puréed and garlic, seasonings, and butter are added! The result is a delicious healthy creamy mushroom soup!

Football Chili

My fiancé loves football. He cannot get enough of it. He also loves chili.. so he made this recipe all on his own to be able to have chili while watching football. It’s interesting that he hates to cook but sometimes, very rarely, he gets excited about making something.

The funny thing is that he’s known to burn food that’s cooked in liquid, such as spaghetti.. He’s done it multiple times! How does he do it? Who knows…it’s a mystery to me. I was at work when he was making this chili and a couple of hours after he started it, I got a text: “I burned the chili.” What?? How did you manage that?? He has a special talent! It definitely added a unique flavor to the chili but nevertheless, it was still delicious. I’m sharing his recipe but I’m going to leave the burning step out, sound good?
