This has been vegan book season! It seems like many of my friends have books coming out this spring and fall. I wanted to share a recipe for Cheesy Cauliflower and Potato Bake from The Abundance Diet by my friend, Somer McCowan.
Somer runs the blog Vedged Out, and is super creative when it comes to recipe development. I’ve shared her Kick Ace Extra Sharp Raw Vegan Cheese Ball and I have her new Chocolate Chip Cookies made with aquafaba on my to-make list.
It was hard to pick just one recipe to share with you. I thought this Cheesy Cauliflower and Potato Bake would be just the thing to take to a summer potluck. It’s a great way to introduce people to making their favorite dishes healthier.
You just cook the potatoes and cauliflower, make the cashew cheesy sauce, then mix everything together and bake.
You could also cook it in the slow cooker, but make sure you try it while you’re at home the first time to get the timing right. Make sure to line the crock with foil or parchment paper so it doesn’t burn and to make cleanup easier.
Somer’s book is broken down into 4 parts:
- Getting Started where she talks about her journey to healthy eating and how to get your kitchen set up for success
- The 28-Day Meal Plan which gives you the meal plans and shopping lists for 4, 2 or 1 person so you don’t even have to do the math!
- The Recipes section is the most abundant of the book which will come as no surprise. There are over 100 gluten-free recipes for green smoothies, breakfast, salads and dressings, soups and stews, dips and snackage, main dishes, desserts and a juice feast.
- Fitness and Maintenance is where Some gives you tips about exercising and how to maintain your new healthy way of eating at the end of the 28 days.
I think The Abundance Diet is a great choice if you are new to eating healthy, need a little help getting back on track, or for anyone looking to add some new tasty recipes into their meal rotation.
I can’t wait to make the Raspberry Lemonade Green Smoothie, Gluten-free Carrot Cake Waffles, Creamy Vegan Ranch Dressing, Nicoise Salad with Smoked Tofu and Creamy Miso Dressing, and the Cherry Garcia Soft-Serve that does not require an ice cream maker!
