Asparagus can be cooked so many different ways and take on numerous flavor combinations. It can be eaten fresh or grilled, steamed, broiled, baked, and even fried.
Nutritionally, asparagus is low in calories and high in Vitamins A, C, K, and E. It is considered a heart-healthy vegetable and aids in blood clotting due to its high K content.
This recipe can be made a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. If the salad seems dry, try sprinkling it with a little extra lemon juice, vinegar and a small amount of sesame oil.
Oh My! These turned out seriously fantastic. I recommend pairing the tacos with the Avocado Crema because it goes so well with the baked cauliflower.
These really don’t take too long and you can go from prep to oven-ready in 30 minutes’ time. There should be leftovers for the next day or if you don’t want too many corn tortillas, simply toss the cauliflower, crema, refried beans, and vegan cheese with some arugula and fresh tomatoes.
Zucchini is almost as versatile as broccoli. Just slice it, dice it, saute it, fry it, bake it and voila…kitchen miracles can happen! I really am not a huge fan of cooked spinach because it reminds me of the canned variety I had to eat as a kid. But fresh spinach with just slight wilting is amazing!
The addition of the hot noodles and roasted zucchini brings this salad to another level. And, don’t forget the Avocado Dressing for an amazing taste sensation!
