Spicy Jasmine Rice & Red Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Thank you Village Harvest for sponsoring this post. Every day Village Harvest is planting seeds of change and growing possibilities, one bag of goodness at a time.

This stuffed peppers recipe will knock your socks off! I have really cracked down on my eating habits over the past month. One of my new favorite healthy dishes are stuffed peppers. These peppers are packed full of spicy, savory goodness with just a hint of cheese. Because cheese is amazing and I still like to indulge a little ūüėČ

With all of the stress of wedding planning and renovating the condo I have felt like a complete mess. I started stress eating, y’all. So I cleaned up my diet and I feel so much better! [ I even created a healthy brownie recipe to get through the sugar cravings ]. This recipe is so good you guys and it is good for you. Perfect for cleaning up your diet without compromising on great flavor. It feels indulgent but is actually healthy and provides some great nutrients.

I recently started using Village Harvest Organic Benefit Blends and boy are they good! For these stuffed peppers I used the Organic Protein Blend with jasmine rice, red quinoa, and lentils. You can easily switch it out for another blend like the Organic Antioxidant or Organic Ancient Grains blend. Each blend offers a distinctive blend of healthful goodness!

What I really love is that Village Harvest products are more than just rice blends, they are about discovering new possibilities at home in the kitchen. The brand’s slogan is Something Better Starts Here and that could not be more true. If you do not have Village Harvest blends in your local grocery store I strongly encourage you to fill out the product request form HERE.

Lemon Parmesan Tuna and Black Bean Pasta

Lemon-Parmesan-Tuna-Black-Bean-Pasta-recipe

Hello hello! I promised this gluten free black bean pasta recipe last week, but, had a terrible time editing the images. I hadn’t planned on shooting this recipe originally, and I have not had time to reshoot it [ yet ]. I grabbed my camera and snapped some quick images in my kitchen.. at night. There wasn’t a single ray of natural light anywhere.

Mistakes. Mistakes everywhere!

Every single vertical image was unusable. Somewhere between panic and resolution, I thought: “This blog is about being real. So just be real about this.”¬†I messed up.. And I’m telling y’all about it. I have been practicing shooting in manual and I missed the mark on more than one image. Mistakes make us better right! So here are a tiny handful of horizontal images to stir your hunger!

Lemon-Parmesan-Tuna-Black-Bean-Pasta-recipe

Pasta dishes are right up there with pizza in my book. Pizza ultimately reigns supreme, but, every now and then a hearty plate of spaghetti really knocks those carb cravings out. Being a pasta lover with a gluten intolerance is.. intolerable [ Ha! I couldn’t help myself! ]. Bad humor aside, it really is tough to find gluten free pasta recipes that taste good and haven’t had all of the nutrients stripped from them.

One of the best alternatives to grain pastas is bean pasta. I started cooking with black bean pasta when even quinoa super grain pastas was making me sick. Tolerant and Explore Cuisine are the two best brands of bean and lentil pastas. They taste fresh and have a great texture! You can substitute either brand in any pasta dish without the fear of eating heavy, cardboard-esque spaghetti.

Lemon Pepper Parmesan Tuna and Black Bean Pasta
Prep Time: 5 min ¬†| ¬†Cook Time: 10 min ¬†| Serves: 2– PIN THIS RECIPE –

Lemon-Parmesan-Tuna-Black-Bean-Pasta-recipe

 

Ingredients:

1 box of black bean pasta [ I used Explore Cuisine brand for this recipe ]
1 can of tuna. Packed in water only
juice of half of a fresh lemon
2 tblsp of grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup of frozen peas
olive oil

Instructions:


1. In a small pot, on low medium heat, mix together the tuna, frozen peas, lemon juice, cheese, and spices. Heat through till peas have completely thawed, and everything has blended together. About 5 minutes.

2. Cook black bean pasta according to directions, drain, and toss with a drizzle of olive oil.

3. Serve pasta and top with a heart spoonful of the lemon parmesan tuna and peas! Sprinkle with extra red pepper flakes and cheese to taste!

Though this recipe will serve two you might have trouble not eating the entire pot yourself. That is exactly what I did the last time that I made this dish! The flavor is hearty and has a kick to it. It’s so delicious! The very best part about this dish is that you do not have to feel even an ounce of guilt while eating it. This quick and easy dinner for two is nutrient rich and flavor packed! I hope you love it as much my honey and I do.

Have you tried bean pasta? 

Happy eating and have a beautiful day!

Loaded Pepperoni Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Beauty comes in all sizes and shapes, small,
large, square, circle, thin crust, thick crust, stuffed crust, four cheese,
extra toppings. . .  See what I did
there? We all know that pizza is one of the best foods out there. This recipe just made it even better. Pizza is incredible, right out of the
oven, or right out of the fridge the next day ( cold leftover pizza is amazing!
). There is truly no wrong time to devour pizza.  There are a myriad of scrumptious
pizza combinations from veggie lovers, to bbq chicken, hawaiian, and dare I say it. . bacon pizza! ( Yes, it exists ). Whatever your hungry heart may be craving, pizza delivers.

I love classic pepperoni pizza, or a stringy four cheese round. You can never go wrong with cheese. I decided to take a shot at classic pepperoni with this recipe and jazz it up a little. I loaded it up with red peppers, baby bella mushrooms, sweet basil, and fresh mozzarella! This topping combination elevates classic pepperoni to a whole new level. This pizza is.. chic. Is that even possible? Each bite is beautifully balanced; equally spicy and savory. There is a hint of red pepper flakes to add warm heat, and sweet basil adds a gentle herby flavor. Fresh mozzarella seals the flavors together with a hint of salt, and adds a divine creamy texture that dances with the pepperoni. Okay, i’m making myself incredibly hungry right now! All of these sumptuous flavors are carried by an amazing cauliflower pizza crust. This cauliflower crust is better than classic crust. I am making that claim you guys! It. is. outstanding. 

Marrying together creamy melted cheese and savory sauce with your favorites toppings on a crispy warm crust is the epitome of deliciousness. Without that delectable crust to carry those
yummy toppings we would just be chowing down on veggies, and stacks of pepperoni. Which is fine, I love me a veggie bowl. There is a certain satisfaction, though, in gently lifting a slice of heaven up and knowing that you are about to partake in a cripsy, salty culinary love affair ( Wow, Jen, that got intense ). You’ll understand when you take that first bite of this cauliflower crust. 

This life changing pizza serves two or one intensely hungry person. Bless the clever culinary soul who thought up cauliflower based crust. You can eat the entire pizza without a shred of guilt, or extra bulge. Now we can have our pizza crust and eat it too!

 Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Red Pepper Pizza
– With Cauliflower Crust –
Prep Time: 20 min  |  Cook Time: 25 min  | Servings: 2 – 4

the-best-pepperoni-cauliflower-crust-pizza
the-best-pepperoni-cauliflower-crust-pizza
the-best-pepperoni-cauliflower-crust-pizza
Ingredients:
For the crust 
– 1 medium size head of cauliflower
– 1 egg 
– 1 teaspoon oregano
– 1 teaspoon sweet basil
– ¬ľ cup grated parmesan cheese
– Small palm full of red pepper flakes ( optional )
– pinch of sea salt
For the toppings
– ¬ľ cup pre-cut baby bella mushrooms (you can find small pre-cut portabella’s in the produce section)
– half of a red bell pepper cut into strips ( about 10 bell pepper strips )
– ¬ľ cup turkey pepperoni slices ( about 15 slices )
– 3 slices of fresh mozzarella 
– ¬Ĺ cup pizza sauce

Instructions.
First things first, preheat the oven to 425ňö, and line a pizza pan, or baking sheet, with parchment paper. Then begin with the cauliflower crust! Rinse the head of cauliflower, pat dry, and remove florets from stalk. If you’re feeling a little lost because you’ve never worked with cauliflower before, think of it this way: You are basically dealing with albino broccoli here. So treat it as such. Just cut the florets off of the stalk and pop them into a bowl. Easy as pie! ( get it.. because pizza.. pizza pie! )

1. Begin by making cauliflower ‚Äúrice‚ÄĚ. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse in until a rice or grit like texture is achieved. If you do not have a food processor you can use a fine cheese
grater!

the-best-pepperoni-cauliflower-crust-pizza

2. Fill a medium pot with an inch of
water and bring to a boil. Add in the cauliflower rice, cover, and boil for 4 -5 minutes. Drain into fine mesh strainer, and transfer onto a cheesecloth or a clean thin dish towel.  Wrap up the
steamed cauliflower rice into the dishtowel, twist it up, and squeeze all of
the excess moisture out. This is the most important step! If there is too much
moisture, the crust will be soggy. So squeeze like heck!
The rice will be very hot so please be careful not to burn your hands. 
In a pinch you can microwave the riced cauliflower instead of boiling it. Microwave for 4-5 minutes on high, then squeeze all of the moisture out in the same manner as above.
3. In a medium size bowl, mix together the strained ( and squeezed ) cauliflower rice, egg, parmesan cheese, and spices. Use a fork or your hands to work the ingredients together. Place dough on lined pizza pan and pat out into desired shape. Dough should be about a ¬ľ of an inch thick. Bake for 20 minutes. When the crust is a warm golden brown on the edges and top it’s ready!

4. Now it is time to add all of the delicious toppings! Start with pizza sauce then add the mushrooms, peppers, pepperoni, and mozzarella to top it off! You can add as much of the toppings as you desire. Go light or go heavy! Whatever your hunger inspires you to do ūüėČ 
5. Return pizza to oven and bake for 10 minutes or until toppings are bubbly and especially delicious to the eyes! 
Remove from oven, slice, and enjoy! I suggest sprinkling more parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes for an extra kick of flavor. You can customize this pizza in anyway that you like. The cauliflower crust is SO GOOD. You can make a hawain, supreme, classic pepperoni, bbq chicken. . the possibilities are endless!

Savory Roasted Carrots

easy-roasted-carrots-recipe
Hey guys! Need a quick healthy recipe? Roasted carrot disks are both savory and sweet! These roasted¬†carrots are so delicious, and you do not have to feel guilty after chowing down. ¬†I have eaten an entire pan by myself! I also¬†turned orange from doing that one too many times. Beta-carotene at its finest. If you are not up for¬†looking like an¬†oompa loompa, share these¬†scrumptious carrots with your loved ones and spread the beta-carotene around ūüėČ

 

WHAT YOU NEED:
10 large carrots ( I use orange, purple, and white carrots ).
2 tablespoons of olive oil.
A palm full each ( about 1 1/2 teaspoons) of black pepper, Italian herbs, and onion powder.

COOKING:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Dice carrots into round disks and spread out on a lined baking sheet. Pour olive oil evenly over carrots and sprinkle spices. Toss evenly to coat. Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy!
It is that simple! The prep is very easy and only takes a few minutes. If you want slightly crisp edges on the smaller disks, roast the carrots for 40 minutes.
* I use organic carrots from my local fresh market that are absolutely huge. If you are using the typical orange carrots from the grocery store you will need to up the number used x2.
