teriyaki cauliflower & kale stir-fry

by Jackie Newgent  |  March 27, 2017  |  2 Comments
Nope, cauliflower doesn’t taste like chicken; but, if you like teriyaki, absolutely do give this high-flavored teriyaki cauliflower & kale stir-fry a try. It’s got a punch of natural sweetness from pure pineapple juice, a spicy kick from red hot chili pepper, and extra zing from a generous amount of fresh ginger. Yum! And using cauliflower in this very veggie makeover keeps the dish hearty and satisfying — and 100% plant-based.

kale & couscous breakfast bowl with egg

by Jackie Newgent  |  June 21, 2016  |  6 Comments
In honor of the Recipe Redux’s June birthday, I’ve chosen a fellow ReDuxer’s recipe for inspiration. The original recipe is 5-Ingredient Healthy Kale and Quinoa Bowl by Kara Lydon, “The Foodie Dietitian.” I appreciate her straightforward, holistic, plant-based approach to recipe creation that appeals to everyday cooks. Plus, Kara’s photography is beautiful. Her quinoa bowl recipe has just five main ingredients. Love the simplicity! I went for a breakfast interpretation of Kara’s recipe—aiming to make the recipe in 20 minutes or less, since most of us simply don’t have the luxury of time to whip up a lengthy morning meal. I opted for whole-wheat couscous in place of quinoa to speed things up. I added lemon zest to heighten citrusy...

avocado toast with lemony arugula salad and egg

by Jackie Newgent  |  March 22, 2016  |  2 Comments
When I want something indulgent while dining out for brunch, my pick is eggs Florentine. But I try my best not to order it more than a few times a year. (Yep, it’s that rich!) So here’s my inspired homemade approach to this decadent dish! And it’s perfect timing since this month’s Recipe Redux theme is “7-Ingredient (or Less) Recipes”—and this is exactly that … 7-ingredients. First, I toast up whole grain bread. One of my favorites is Dave’s Killer 21 Whole Grains & Seeds Organic Bread—which I used here. It’s delicious, plus each slice provide 5 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein, and is non-GMO! Then I top it with Hass avocado, a fresh lemon vinaigrette-dressed baby arugula...

savory kale and crimini oatmeal with fried egg

What’s basically like risotto, yet based on oats rather than Arborio rice? Savory oatmeal! And I’m a ginormous fan of it! In fact, I wrote an entire recipe slideshow on savory oatmeal for Livestrong.com. Continuing on that creative and craveable culinary journey, I’ve got another one to share. This savory kale and crimini oatmeal with fried egg version is an entire meal-in-one that can help you break out of breakfast boredom. It’s got a Chinese-style twist and amazing taste. Hope you enjoy this big bowl of lovin’ as much as I do. Hint: Serve it for all-day breakfast! And try it for an on-the-go breakfast in a vacuum-insulated food container.
