What I Ate This Week | Cauliflower Wings, Part 2: Sesame-Glazed Edition

A few months ago, I posted about one of our cats getting into a bag of nutritional yeast. It is happening again! Yesterday I found Frida in the spice cabinet tearing open the bag of nutritional yeast I had in there and feasting upon its contents. The past 24 hours has basically been Frida meowing in front of the cabinet door, clawing at the cabinet door, and giving me the stink-eye whenever I’m in the kitchen. Thankfully, she has not yet peed in the nutritional yeast, which is what happened last time one of the cats discovered it. Why are my cats such freaky weirdos? This is why we can’t have nice things. Like nutritional yeast.

Oh, and here’s what I ate this week:

Sesame-Glazed Cauliflower Wings Sesame-Glazed Cauliflower Wings from Cupcakes & Kale Chips // I guess cauliflower wings are my new thing now. Which is kind of funny because I’ve never even had chicken wings. We loved the sweet, gingery sauce on these. If you’re not a fan of cauliflower, these will win you over!

Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread Gooey Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread from A Girl Worth Saving // This bread is completely grain-free and you seriously would not know it. It’s dense, tender, and delicious. Kelly’s blog is paleo and while I have no plans to swap out my morning oats for bacon, she posts lots of healthy (vegan!) desserts, so I’m always stalking her blog for those recipes. Oh, and you really need to make this bread because it is amaaaaazing.

Mushroom Skillet Lasagna Mushroom Skillet Lasagna from Savory Simple // Skillet lasagna has been on my to-make list for a while and I finally got around to doing it. Well, actually, Chris made it because I threw out my upper back somehow and have been unable to bend or turn my head since Wednesday night. Fun times! Anyway, this made a delicious, filling dinner, with lots of leftovers too.

Roasted Acorn Squash with Chile and Garlic Roasted Acorn Squash with Chile and Garlic from 80Twenty // YUM! I love easy sides like this–roast some acorn squash wedges, whisk together the dressing while the wedges are baking, and then drizzle the dressing on top. Simple! These were so good.

Vanilla Bean & Cinnamon Chia Pudding Vanilla Bean and Cinnamon Chia Pudding from Culinary Colleen // I always make chocolate chia pudding, but I decided to live dangerously and try vanilla this week. Normally I’m not a fan of vanilla unless it’s made with vanilla beans and since this pudding is made with vanilla beans, I was a happy camper. I love chia pudding!

Sweet Chili, Hoisin, Tofu & Vegetable Noodles Sweet Chili, Hoisin, Tofu & Vegetable Noodles from Fuss Free Cooking // I marinated my own tofu for this and used soba noodles since that’s what I had on hand. Instead of choy sum, I used bok choy. This made two big bowls of noodle-y deliciousness!

    First cauliflower steaks and now cauliflower wings … now I’m just dreaming up all the possible shapes that cauliflower could take on. Ribs? An entire game hen?!! (The sad thing is I am half like, omg, cauliflower game hen. I could totally do this.)

    As always, fantasticness all around – and your intro paragraph cracked me up. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So funny about the cats and nutritional yeast!

    I tried the other cauliflower wings, and while they were delicious they were just TOO hot for me. I will definitely be giving the sesame ones a try.

      I drove 40 minutes to get that nutritional yeast too. 40 minutes! I left it on the countertop after getting it because I had planned on using it the next day. When I woke up in the morning, one of the cats had dragged it from the kitchen to the stairs, leaving a trail of yeast the whole way, then peed on it. Good morning! I peed on your yeast! The yeast you drove 40 minutes to buy!

    Feel your pain, re the puss. Had to go to mason jars myself to keep my Boo out of the good stuff.
    Ps: thanks so much for this blog. I have 2 vegematarian children & you saved my toosh at Thanksgiving. Quinoa stuffed squash, mushroom gravy & walnut dressing earned me big Mom points ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Kiersten says

      I am going to have to transfer mine to a jar too. I’m glad I’m not the only one with freaky cats that obsess over nutritional yeast! I’m glad the Thanksgiving recipes were a success! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cats are SO weird…

    Have you thought about keeping the nutritional yeast in a mason jar or some other sealed container (ideally glass, but even a sturdy Tupperware container might work) or storing it in the freezer? Might keep the cat from smelling it (definitely will if its in the freezer) and trying to get into it.

    • Kiersten says

      Yeah, I’m going to transfer it to something airtight and cross my fingers that Frida forgets that it’s in the cabinet. Days later and she is STILL sitting in front of the door begging to get in. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I LOVE cauliflower, I recently had a pizza with cauliflower and it was really good. I love it that so many veggies just taste so darned delicious. I am going to try that dish, along with the mushroom skillet lasagna. Lately, I’ve been pulling out my skillet a lot to cook so totally excited to do that. Thanks!

    Ooo that roasted acorn squash looks so good! I haven’t had acorn squash since last Thanksgiving… and I think it’s time to change that! Happy Friday Kiersten!!

    Cats are so funny – my parents’ cat will roll around amorously in any grapes he can find, if they are left on the counter or he gets into a grocery bag they are inedible ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the pumpkin bread!

  8. says

    Everything looks delicious as usual ๐Ÿ™‚ That chocolate chip pumpkin bread will definitely be baking in my kitchen sometime soon! Funny story about your cat & the nutritional yeast. Did I tell you about the time my dog ripped open the package of red velvet cake mix and ate it? My kids thought he had cut his moth and was bleeding! Nope….just sticky red cake mix ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. says

    Your cats definitely have taste :-)) I love that gooey pumpkin bread!

  10. says

    Hehe, one of the cats we took care of for a month, loves vegan cheese products including vegan cream cheese. I think I’ve a picture of it somewhere, it loves these kinds plus eats lettuce too! It’s something savory that attracts them ๐Ÿ™‚ wow all of the dishes look fantastic including the noodle dish (hehe, i can’t live without asian foods).

    • Kiersten says

      One of our cats loves lettuce too. I tried to grow it in our little screened porch and whenever we let him out there, he’d eat it. We had catnip out there too and he would bypass the catnip for the lettuce!

  11. says

    I recently made the cauliflower wings too. Mine didn’t look as pretty as either of y’alls, but they tasted good! I loved the sauce too…couldn’t get anyone else in my house to try them ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. says

    Oh no! Hope your back is better by now. That was sweet of your husband, and it looks good too! So does the cauliflower. I’m actually not crazy about wings, but I like cauliflower.
