Taco Tot Casserole

Recipe found on Allergy Free Angela (the website is no longer running)
My Rating: 5 out of 5

My Review

I’m so disappointed that Allergy Free Angela is no longer a site. I wish I would have shared this recipe with you sooner so you could’ve tried it, too. It was absolutely delicious. It was a fun play off the traditional “tater tot hot dish” that’s popular in the Midwest. I loved the added veggies and spices.

Ingredients list can’t be found, sorry!

Kung Pao Chicken

Recipe found on Tastes Better From Scratch
My Rating: 3.5 out of 5

My Review

Check out that ingredients list below! Why were there so many items needed? I couldn’t taste how this recipe was superior to other ones we’ve tried with less… it wasn’t any better and the chicken kind of dried out.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or more to increase spiciness)
  • 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste with garlic (or use sriracha hot sauce with a little minced garlic)
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • hot cooked rice, for serving (I ate mine with noodles)

Cauliflower Alfredo

Recipe found on the Castaway Kitchen

My Review

Yum, yum, yummy!!! It may not look pretty but, it was darn tasty. The cauliflower sauce really did resemble Alfredo but, it wasn’t exactly the same… it was even better! The chunkiness wasn’t noticeable, the sauce was actually soft and fun. Mushrooms, bacon, and spinach are a dream trio, too. Try this one, guys!

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 1/2 spaghetti squash, roasted (we used linguine)
  • shirataki noodles, or zoodles for lower carb
  • 4 slices sugar free, nitrate free bacon
  • 4 cups raw spinach
  • 2 cup sliced, cremini or baby bella mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 sprig fresh basil
  • 1 head cauliflower, about 3 cups diced
  • 2 small onions, 1 cup diced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup bone broth
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

        1. I love that we are both Midwesterners living on the West Coast (for now). 🙂 I think that’s why we have so much in common! I am DYING at that meme. It is the TRUTH. Who came up with all these new ways of making cauliflower & why do they all work so well?!?

    1. I guess Allergy Free Angela gave up on her site & stopped paying to host it lol. The Kung Pao Chicken def didn’t need that many ingredients… it tasted the same as when we used less last time! & I was pleasantly surprised with the cauli alfredo. 🙂
