ACORN SQUASH AND GORGONZOLA PIZZA WITH ARUGULA

YIELD: 4-6 servings

PREP TIME: 30 minutes

COOK TIME: 25-30 minutes

 

1 (1-lb) acorn squash

2 tablespoons maple syrup 

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup shredded mozzarella

1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola

1 cup arugula

1-lb pizza dough

 

Preheat oven to 375F.

Half squash and remove seeds.  Slice the squash from top to bottom so that you have half-moon shaped pieces that are about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch wide (1 inch will be too thick). 

Repeat until the entire squash is cut.

In a separate bowl, combine squash marinade: syrup, olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Toss squash in mixture.

Place squash on a greased baking sheet and spread out. Allow to roast for 20-25 minutes, or until squash is golden and somewhat tender. Allow squash to rest for a few minutes and when cool enough to the touch, peel off dark green skin.

Prepare pizza: roll out pizza dough on a well flour surface and transfer to baking stone with corn meal.

Lightly cover pizza dough in olive oil and puncture pizza dough for baking.  

Cover pizza dough in half-moon shaped squash. Top with fresh arugula (you can skip this step and add after the pizza is cooked, but I prefer the arugula to cook down) Top with mozzarella and gorgonzola cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until dough is done and the topping is golden brown. Enjoy!

 

BUFFALO ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets

1 tablespoon oil

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup hot sauce

blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping (optional)

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss the cauliflower florets in the oil, salt and pepper, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.

Toss cauliflower in the hot sauce and enjoy warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping and celery sticks on the side.

 

"VEGAN BREADED BUFFALO ROASTED CAULIFLOWER WITH "RANCH""

YIELD: 2-4 servings

PREP TIME: 30 minutes

COOK TIME: 50-60 minutes

 

1 head of cauliflower (approx. 4-5 cups of florets)

1/2 C unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond or soy work best)

1/2 C water

3/4 C all-purpose flour (can sub gluten-free rice flour)

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp of paprika

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground pepper

1 tbsp earth balance buttery spread

1 C frank's red hot sauce


Line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 450 F.


Wash and cut cauliflower head into bite sized pieces/florets.
Mix all the ingredients (minus the earth balance and hot sauce, this is added separately!) into a mixing bowl.
The batter shouldn't be so thick that it doesn't drip, but also not so thin that it doesn't coat or stick to the cauliflower.
NOTE: if you're using rice flour you may need to add a little more liquid to get the batter the right consistency. It tends to be slightly thicker.


Dip each floret into the mixture and coat evenly. Tap off the excess a couple of times on the side of the bowl.
Lay florets in an even layer on the parchment lined baking sheet without over crowding.
NOTE: parchment paper or a silpat mat is essential in preventing the batter from coming off throughout baking! We've tried oiling the baking sheets and they tend to stick. You need parchment paper!


Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown, flipping the florets over half way through to get all sides golden brown and crispy.
While the cauliflower is baking get your ranch dip and wing sauce ready. In a small saucepan on low heat melt earth balance and mix in hot sauce. Remove from the heat just as it starts to melt. Stir together and set aside.
Once the cauliflower is done it's first bake in the batter, remove them from the oven and put all the baked florets into a mixing bowl with the wing sauce and toss to coat evenly, or you can do this in smaller batches. Then spread all the florets in wing sauce out onto the same baking sheet. Bake in the oven for another 25 minutes, flipping the florets over half way through.
NOTE: using gluten-free rice flour may vary bake time and everyone's oven is different. Watch the florets at both stages and adjust bake time accordingly!

RANCH DIP INGREDIENTS
1 C wildwood zesty garlic aioli (or vegan mayonnaise of your choice)
1/8 C non-dairy milk
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp dill
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp chives


If you use a regular vegan mayonnaise without garlic in it, then you might also want to add 1 tsp of garlic powder.
Finely chop the fresh dill, parsley and chives. Whisk together all the ingredients until smooth.
Alternatively (and this is how I prepare the ranch) you can blend together vegan mayonnaise, non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt and ground pepper in a blender. Pour the dip into a jar or serving bowl and stir in the fresh herbs. Refrigerate before serving.


ROASTED CABBAGE SLICES

YIELD: 2-4 servings

PREP TIME: 5 minutes

COOK TIME: 40 minutes

 

1 head of cabbage

3 tablespoons (or more) of oil-coconut oil, olive oil, tallow, etc

Salt and Pepper to taste (I used about a tablespoon of each)

Optional: 1 teaspoon of favorite herbs like basil, oregano, caraway seeds, dill, etc.
 


Preheat oven to 400 degrees


Slice the cabbage starting at the top of the head so that the inner pieces for circles within the slices. Aim for ¼-1/2 inch slices.
Oil a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Place the cabbage on the baking sheet and drizzle with the remaining oil. You may need to melt it if using a solid oil like coconut oil or tallow.
Sprinkle with desired spices (it is even delicious with just Himalayan salt !) and place in the oven.
Roast for 35-40 minutes or until tender in the middle and sides are just starting to turn golden brown. Remove and serve.
I enjoy this plain or topped with an over-easy egg for breakfast.
Enjoy!
