Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Bites
Prep time: 10 Minutes - Cook time: 30 Minutes - Total time: 40 MinutesYield: Makes 24 Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Bites
Ingredients:
2 Cups Grated Cauliflower (washed, dried and grated using a food processor or cheese grater by hand until rice-like or thinner – Note – Approximately one head of cauliflower)
1 Tsp Oregano
2 Tsp Parsley
1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1-2 Tbsp Frank’s Hot Sauce
1 Flax Egg (1 Tbsp Ground Flax and 3 Tbsp Warm Water)
1/2 Cup Firm Tofu
1/2 Cup Chickpeas (Cooked and Drained)
Directions:
Pre-heat your oven to 450 F.
Spray your mini muffin tin with a healthy cooking oil.
Make your flax egg – Place ground flax and 3 tbsp of water in a small bowl – set aside to let thicken.
In a hot frying pan stir-fry the “cauliflower rice” until the cauliflower is slightly translucent (about 6-8 minutes). Place in a bowl and let cool.
Place all other ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth.
In a bowl combine both the “cauliflower rice” and blended ingredients. Mix completely.
Evenly spoon mixture into your muffin tin molds. Press pizza dough down evenly and firmly (*The pressing down firmly is very important to make sure these stick together).
Place in your oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Remove the pizza bites from the oven and let set until cool (This is also very important – let these pizza bites set in their pan for 5 – 10 minutes before removing – If you take them out while they are too hot they will break).
Once cool remove from muffin tin (either by tipping them out OR by running a thin knife down along the side and popping them out).
Use organic, natural pizza or pasta sauce for dipping (or make your own sauce- Simple Marinara Sauce link).
Enjoy!

Peach Ginger Mint Green Smoothie

This fresh, summery smoothie will quench your thirst and rejuvenate your cells! My ingredients veer a little from the smoothie ingredients we typically use. This one makes use of all of the produce (except ginger) you can find at your your local Farmer’s Market or food co-op right now! Since I have a smoothie recipe for winterspring, and autumn, I thought a summery green smoothie recipe needed to be posted. You can check out our Super Antioxidant Smoothie which does use summer produce (but it’s not green!).
