Roasted Whole Cauliflower

Roasted Whole Cauliflower

This is my new favorite way to make cauliflower. It is great dish to make for a dinner party or a pot luck. It is vegetarian-friendly, can easily be made vegan-friendly, and doesn't require much active work. The seasoning in this particular recipe is inspired by the seasonings on elotes, Mexican street corn. At the end of this post, I have ideas for other seasonings that work well with cauliflower.

The Best Way To Store Green Onions

The Best Way to Store Green Onions

Slimy green onions are gross and such a disappointment when you were expecting them to still be fresh. I've tried multiple ways to store them and this is what works the best for me: Put them in a jar/glass with a little bit of water (it shouldn't extend into the green part, keep it within the white part), cover it with a gallon-sized ziplock bag, and put it all in the fridge.

(If you are wondering about the difference…

Cook them in your sous vide water bath for 30 minutes at 182F (83.3C). Take the bag out, cut it open, and serve!

Radish Cilantro Slaw

Do you have a bunch of radishes that you don't know what to do with? Try making this delicious topping for your next batch of tacos. I came up with this after buying a container of beautiful radishes from the local farmers' market, only to return home and discover that we already had a full bag in the fridge. After making a batch of quick pickles out of them, I came up with this to put on our tacos. Amanda and I liked it so much that we ate it two…
