Last week I posted a recipe for the recipe redux which was themed: “A Trend in Every Pot.” We were to choose a food trend for 2013 and make it into a one pot dish. The trend that I chose was using vegetables as a main course. Since soup is one of my favorites, I chose to make vegetable soup, suggesting that you can make a hearty and satisfying vegetable soup that’s suitable for a meal. I really enjoyed reading about the latest food trends, so I thought I would post a few more recipes to go along with the trends for this year. Trending for me this week once again is to cut meat consumption. However, this time it’s not for dinner, but for an appetizer; it’s amazing at how many vegetables can be substituted for meat! A few weeks ago I saw a recipe for buffalo cauliflower bites on the skinny taste blog, which was adapted from the PETA website. My version is below – I am leaving the batter out to save a few steps. This is a perfect appetizer to serve up for the big game on this Superbowl Sunday, and give the chickens a break this year!
