ROASTED CAULIFLOWER AND GARBANZO COUSCOUS With BALSAMIC CANDIED WALNUTS
Do you love crazy scary rides?
We were in Disney for the weekend.
We ate Churros, Mickey Ice creams, cheesy pasta, frozen lemonade and a lot in between. I am not even making up what I ate, it was a little too much. I feel stuffed and
not so a little guilty to have eaten my way to happiness. Now, I fear the scale. Why am I only talking about food, we were in Disney right???…
The boys rode crazy rides many times and I stood by, 1. feeling too full, 2.feeling too scared. In reality big scary rides scare me more than it used to, wonder why?? I used to be a daredevil, bungee jumping, even sky diving but a 100 foot ride just churns me up from inside even without sitting on the ride.
Food looked better than the rides to me.The churros were so good, warm, lightly crispy on the outside, sorta chewy and soft on the inside with cinnamon sugar dusted all over it,…wow, I sure miss those.
Back to some healthy stuff..
I can’t live without a good spice blend, I’ve been using this one from couple of weeks on vegetables and sweet potatoes, I do like it. To wake up the flavors, I try to add some fresh herbs and some lemon juice. It is a nice blend to have. No, they didn’t pay me, although I wished they did:).
I enjoy cauliflower in any form but I’m sure you are with me on roasting them. Roasting just brings out the best in them.
I tossed in some garbanzo beans while roasting cauliflower and it was perfect. Had to have some crunch, so, made some BALSAMIC CURRIED WALNUT and tossed everything with some couscous, which I cooked in some vegetable stock. To make this even more perfect, lightly shredded some Parmesan cheese. It was delicious and I would consider this healthy compared to my bread and cheese lunch couple of days ago.
