It’s SPRING! I LOVE Spring! Flowers! Planting the Garden. Cool days and nights. Fresh Spring Veggies. Spring Fruits. I know there aren’t many but what is Springy is always fresh and delicious. Each region of the US has a different growing season and different fruits and veggies available. The South has a nice long growing season so were are more fortunate than some areas.
Since it has been a busy week I went with something quick and simple for Peggy’s pick this week – Spring Harvest.
Cauliflower “Rice” Pilaf
Since I am still doing the Whole30 program for 90% of my meals this fit in perfectly. And only four main ingredients: cauliflower, pine nuts/almonds, onions and parsley. It was perfect with some leftover Black Pepper Chicken.
I did make one change. Ellie called for OO for sauteeing the onions and cauliflower but I decided to use some toasted sesame oil instead. It added a little Asian flair to the rice and a little bite. Good!
The recipe is from Ellie Krieger’s You Have it Made. page 306.

And if you want to cook/bake along with us the weekly themes are listed on the right of the Ellie page. We don’t publish the recipes. We would rather you purchase Ellie’s books.
