Thank you for all the wonderful feedback on Monday’s post. Gosh I am just so grateful for the wonderful friends this crazy little blog has brought into my life!
So I cooked this meal while doing my new favorite pastime — listening to audiobooks. I wish I could say that I’m listening to something groundbreaking and inspiring, and mind-elevating…but, I’m listening to a Bachelor tell-all book that’s all the buzz in BachelorNation right now. And I’m loving every second of it. haha
But get this: I got the book for free so I don’t really feel that bad about listening to something that should be in the “rag-mag” section at the grocery store. But I used this week’s sponsor: Audible, and did their Free 30 day trial. And when I signed up, I got 2 free audiobooks!
And if you cancel within 30 days, it’s no money out of your pocket. Now, I’m not saying this is the most ethical thing I’ve ever done, but hey — it’s literally what they’re offering! And quite honestly, I’m having so much fun cooking and listening that I’m probably going to actually sign on after my 30-day free trial is up. haha
Here’s the link where you can try Audible out for free, and get 2 complimentary audiobooks, too. And just by signing up, you’re helping support this blog. So thank you in advance. And if you want to listen to Bachelor Nation by Amy Kaufman with me, let me know and we can have a fun chat about all the juicy behind-the-scene deets 🙂
OK – THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is one of my ALL-TIME-FAVORITE RECIPES I’ve every created.
Now, I know I say that a lot, but I’m not even kidding you…I dream about this meal.
MEXICAN. GUACAMOLE. PIZZA.
This was soooo fresh and tasty. A crunchy millet crust, topped with guacamole, and roasted spicy broccoli and cauliflower!
There is something so magical that happens to broccoli and cauliflower when you roast it in the oven…And with this amazing spice rub — it will convert even the most stubborn of vegetable-averse humans.
And it’s gluten free with Paleo and Vegan options!
Here’s what you need: (Serves 1)
1 cup broccoli, broken into florets
1 cup cauliflower, broken into florets
1/4 red onion, sliced thin
1 green onion, sliced
squeeze of lime
1-2 Tbsp red onion, minced
1 garlic clove, grated on a microplane (or minced)
1-2 Tbsp cilantro, minced
2 healthy pinches of salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook the millet until it absorbs all the liquid, about 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, and set aside to cool.
Cut 2 medium-sized rectangles of parchment paper.
Once the millet is cooled, combine it in a bowl with your egg-of-choice, almond flour, and salt. Mix well to combine. Then, place the millet mixture on one piece of parchment paper. Place the other sheet on top, and then “smoosh” it out as thin as you can. Leave the top paper on (it’ll be like a parchment paper sandwich), and bake for about 35 minutes, until the edges are a dark golden brown.
Meanwhile, roast the cauliflower and broccoli. Place the florets on an olive oil-sprayed, tinfoil-lined baking sheet. Spritz them with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt pepper, and spices. (Only use a PINCH of garlic powder – it is very potent!) Bake for about 20 minutes, until nice and golden and roasted!
Also, make your guac. Combine all the guac ingredients in a bowl, and smash the avocado with the back of fork. Season to taste. Mmmmm!
Finally, soak the red onion slices in ice water for about 10 minutes and drain. (This gets rid of that bitter, harsh onion-y bite!)
To assemble, spread the guac on the flatbread. Top with the roasted veggies and garnish with green onions and cilantro! YUMMO!
This meal was truly super! It was like a nacho pizza! The millet crust was so crunchy and wonderful, while the guacamole was luxuriously rich and creamy! And the roasted veggies had a perfectly tender bite to them — just fabulous!
And the flavors were outstanding! I’m crazy for anything with Mexican flavors! I love the bright freshness of guacamole, combined with the smokey-spice of the broccoli and cauliflower, and the nutty richness from the millet. It’s so clean and healthy while being out-of-this-world flavorful!
And finally, it was a beautiful dish with the different shades of green, orange and purple! Simply stunning! 🙂
