Steak, mashed potatoes, and chips!…kind of…except it was all vegetables! Mwahahaha!

"steak", "mashed potatoes", and chips :)

“steak”, “mashed potatoes”, and chips 🙂

So tonight I decided to make the husband happy…and healthy 😉 I’m a very sneaky wife mwahahah! All vegetables tonight!

Instead of steak I marinated portobello mushrooms in Worcestershire sauce all day and then grilled them.

For the mashed potatoes I took frozen cauliflower and microwaved it for 7 minutes (til thawed) drained te water and put it in my food processor with some italian herbs! Voila! Faux mashed potatoes that would fool any child or husband (but I think some cheese would be a really good tasty add in if you’re feeding kiddos).

Instead if classic frozen chips I chopped up a sweet potato, steamed them for 25 minutes along with the broccoli (and 6 eggs for lunches this week). Then I sautéed them in some leftover Worcestershire sauce in a nonstick pan with no extra oil to crispy them up.

Yummy yummy! I think I could feed this to my little 10 year old brother and even he would like it. Massive thumbs up from the hubby tonight 🙂

Healthiest pizza in the world and lunch for tomorrow too!

Yummy tasty cauliflower pizza!

Ingredients for my pizza base

So I have fallen in love with frozen califlour. Not it as itself but the many things you can do with it! As a rice substitute in stir fry, potato substitute in a roast dinner or a pizza base! So last night I made pizza for me and Andy and at the same time made up my lunch for the next day 🙂

Preheat your oven to 350F. I started out with about a head of califlour. Put it in a bowl and microwave it to defrost. Then I sieved some of the water out and put it into my food processor to blend it to a purée. I then put it in a bowl with:1tbsp garlic crushed
1 tbsp ground flax
2 tbsp italian seasoning
2 eggs
1/2 cup shredded low fat mozzarella cheese

All my topping ingredients! Gotta love those colors!

I mixed everything together and pressed it onto two cookie sheets (or pizza trays if you’re fancy like that, lol) and cook for about 12 minutes. While that’s cooking you can chop up your toppings. I’m quite a veggie lover so I made one withbasil, tomatoes, an mozzarella. And another with roast veggies. I also make my own sauce with tomato purée, italian seasoning, basil, and garlic powder.

Pizza bases baked off and sauce ready to spread!

Take your bases out and top them! Yay, fun 🙂 put them back in the oven for another 12 minutes (or so). While they were cooking. I used the rest of the toppings for my lunch the next day. Just a light sauté and then put into a box with a tin of tomatoes and some kidney beans. I babysit on Tuesdays so it’s a meal I can just microwave at the house and keep myself healthy while making the kids ham and cheese sandwiches 😉

Tomorrows lunch ready to go!

Pizzas completed!

Prepare yourself: this will not simulate pizza “dough”. It’s a whole different experience, you will have to use a spatula to put the pieces into your plate and you might have to use a fork :p BUT when you think about how unprocessed, gluten free, natural, low calorie, and healthy this version is then you’re sure to go back for seconds 😉

Love you all, hope you enjoy pizza night 🙂
