Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sesame Chicken is one of my all time favorite Chinese take-out dishes. Despite my affinity for it, the summer is slowly approaching and I’m doing everything I can to cut unnecessary calories and fat, without compromising flavor. For example, although we’re breading our Cauliflower, we’ll avoid a ton of excess fat and calories by baking our florets instead of frying them. Even though this is a healthier choice than traditional Chinese take-out, no flavor or comfort factor is compromised.

Zucchini Hummus

Zucchini Hummus

I am a huge fan of hummus, but I don’t always love making it at home, because it takes a little bit of effort to get it as smooth as restaurant quality hummus.

By swapping the chickpeas with raw zucchini, this hummus becomes so creamy, so light and refreshing, and comes together so fast, it’s my absolute favorite way to make hummus at home!
