Sriracha Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Sriracha Buffalo Cauliflower Bites | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

First the cauliflower gets rolled in a little breading, then it’s off to the oven to be baked to perfection. Once they’ve finished baking they get covered in the BEST sriracha buffalo sauce. Honestly, you will not even realize you are eating cauliflower. All you will realize is that it’s so dang good. I think these bites may be one of my dad’s favorites. He and I both loved them, especially when dipped in that blue cheese sauce (YUM, and it’s made healthier with Greek yogurt!). There really are no words.

Smoky Black Bean Beet Burgers

VEGAN Black Bean Beet Burgers! Tender and moist on the inside, slightly crisp on the outside with TONS of flavor and nutrition #vegan #glutenfree #minimalistbaker

People call beets a lot of things ― earthy, or even dirty, gets thrown around a lot ― but beautiful is not often one of them. And it should be. Beets, with their ruby red or golden yellow hue, are stunners. When put to work in the right recipes, they will easily impress.

That’s not all beets are good for, either. These roots are a nutritional powerhouse. They’re high in betaine, which helps fight inflammation. They’re rich in nitrates, which could help lower blood pressure. And they’re a great source of folates, which is vital in disease risk reduction. Continue reading “Smoky Black Bean Beet Burgers”

How To Make Broccoli Actually Taste Good

Broccoli is detested by so many people, and that sentiment is wholly undeserved. This green veggie is versatile and delicious, plus it pairs beautifully with butter and cheese(which is always a bonus, in our book).

The reason broccoli gets such a bad rap is because too many people cook it beyond recognition. It’s not the broccoli’s fault ― this nutritious vegetable deserves better.

If you’re a broccoli hater, we have a guide for you. A number of do’s and don’ts that’ll ensure you eat the best broccoli of your life ― and forget all about the bad broccoli of your youth. If you’re already a broccoli fan, you might find a new cooking method below.

Let’s get you learning how to love broccoli.

Roasted broccoli, the best vegetable dish in the world.

 

1. For the best broccoli of your life, roast it. Roasting makes broccoli taste like the best stuff on the planet. It caramelizes the broccoli, releasing the natural sugar in the vegetable. It is unlike anything you’ve ever had before. Continue reading “How To Make Broccoli Actually Taste Good”

No-Cook Overnight Oatmeal

TheChic_overnight-oatmeal

Cold oatmeal for breakfast?  It may not sound appetizing, but don’t judge it before you try it!

Cold oats or grains are nothing new or unusual.  Muesli is a traditional Swiss dish that consists of uncooked oats, fruits, nuts and milk.  Instead of cooking the oats, it is soaked in the milk until it has softened.

This cold bowl of oatmeal is a refreshing and surprising breakfast.   It’s nothing like cooked oatmeal that is gluey and super thick when cooled.

I prefer this chilled oatmeal because it is ready when I wake up in the morning.  There is no need to heat it up, however you can warm it up in the microwave if you’d like.  We’ve all heard that oatmeal is good for you.  It’s full of fiber, lowers your cholesterol, and keep your full all morning.
