This post is going to be pretty short and sweet, because I only made two new recipes in the month of January!
Spicy Beef Rice Bowls from Skinnytaste Fast and Slow cookbook. I got this cookbook for Christmas and seriously spent all day and part of the next day just combing through it. The first recipe I decided to try was the Spicy Beef Rice Bowls, which was one of the bonus recipes at the end (available at Target). It was relatively easy to make (mostly done in the slow cooker), although it uses some different ingredients like bok choy and Napa cabbage. Also, I apparently don't cook Asian food often, because I had to stock up on a lot of the more pantry type ingredients, like sesame oil, oyster sauce and a few others, too. Overall opinion? Just not my favorite. I can't necessarily pinpoint why, because the flavor wasn't bad. It just wasn't that good either, at least for me.
Roasted Cauliflower Winter Salad from A Blonde's Moment. This was a good salad. I ate it alone and then paired with chicken for lunches throughout the week. My favorite thing by far was the roasted chickpeas. They were so delicious - I had quite a few off the pan when making the salad, and they were what I went for when I was actually eating the salad. If you are in a salad rut, I would definitely suggest trying out this one. I haven't ever been big on cauliflower, but roasting it was a great, and as I mentioned, I just could not get enough of the chickpeas! Just to note, I ate this with and without the feta cheese, and while it was better with (obviously, cheese is always a good idea), I still really enjoyed it without!
Have you made any good new-to-you recipes lately?
