1/4 cantaloupe, sliced into thin strips (add more if you like)
Raw cauliflower, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
Red wine vinegar
1/2 lime (or lemon)
Salt & pepper
Red pepper flakes
Add salmon fillets to a roasting pan lined with foil. Drizzle fillets with olive oil and season with salt, lemon pepper and red pepper flakes. Broil on Hi for 10 minutes or until fillets flake easily with a fork. Set aside.
Chop kale thin and toss with red wine vinegar while you prep the rest of the ingredients. Whisk together the olive oil and lime juice in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Once you are ready to serve, top with cantaloupe and cauliflower in a large bowl and toss with dressing.
Divide salad into 2 bowls. Top with avocado and salmon fillets.
Highly recommended with a nice bottle of white or rose. We enjoyed Miraval!
After a long day at work, home alone and not one inch of me wanting to shop or order take out resulted in this dish. Which I can say was easy, delicious and pretty, so naturally I fell in love and now make it all the time.
The best part of this dish is that it can be different every time. Keeping a box of pasta in your pantry at all times is a must for this reason! Then add in any veggies or protein you have for a quick satisfying bite.
What you need: (For this version)
Box of your favorite pasta (gluten free or regular both work)
1/4 cup of milk
2 Italian sausages
1/2 red onion
Micro greens (topper)
Salt, pepper, chili powder and chili flakes
What to do:
Bring a large pot of water to boil
Drizzle a lil bit of olive oil and cook pasta for about 6 minutes (if gluten free) to al dente
In another saucepan:
Drizzle olive oil and start to heat slivered red onions – on med-high
Add in chopped up sausage after onions start to brown a lil
Turn down heat to medium
Then add in chopped shitakes
Sprinkle salt and chili powder to liking (not too much cause you can always add more)
Mix til everything looks about cooked and turn to low heat
Throw in micro greens
Time to combine:
Drain pasta and let it sit while all the mixings cook
Add pasta back into the pot and add milk
After the milk starts to boil and your pasta starts to get coated add in your toppings and mix til you get a good balance of everything in one bite
Serve with fresh herbs sprinkled on top and a pinch of cheese
