“Having a garden is a lot like having children, you need to give it the care, the patience and the respect to bloom. I generally start my gardens with seedlings from an organic non-GMO nursery that ships directly to my front door. When I first put them in the greenhouse they look so small… but consistency + water + weeding + love + sunshine = the photos you see in this blog post! ;)” ~T

#meatlessmonday Week #32 Cauliflower Pizza

Cauliflower Pizza

untitled-4-of-4.jpg
“I love these cauliflower crusts… I love that they have a plant based version more!! I love that this company is woman owned and operated by our neighbors in Chico! I like to spray the crust with a little bit of olive or avocado oil and slightly toast it in the oven. In this version (Pizza is so versatile!) I used one of our favorite pasta sauces and spread it on top. I used artichoke hearts, white onion, beets, peppers and vegan cheese. It was so good I almost forgot to take a picture (One of my constant challenges!). Serve this baby up with a green salad or for summer flair, a fresh fruit salad! Enjoy and let me know what combination you come up with for your pizza! I think my next one will have kalamata olives in it… Mediterranean style!” ~Tanya Rose
