Weeknight Rescue//Fall 2022//Cauliflower Tostadas, Sheet Pan Chicken, Almost Vegan Alfredo, Pot Roast, Reset Salad

Baked Pumpkin Donuts

The menu is so full of scrumptious eats this week, I’m not sure where to begin. The “Almost Vegan” Linguine is a rich and creamy pasta, but made without a drop of cream. The Roasted Cabbage Wedges give fresh new meaning to what is possible with this very humble vegetable. And the Baked Pumpkin Donuts are a “must make” this time of year!

CAULIFLOWER TOSTADAS WITH CHIPOTLE SAUCE

Cauliflower tostadas with avocado, cabbage and chipotle cream with lime slices

Though not exactly traditional tostadas, these are definitely crave-worthy. The dish is on the lighter side, so add a side of homemade or canned pinto or black beans embellished with a spoonful of salsa.

WILD BLUEBERRY BALSAMIC SHEET PAN CHICKEN

This simple supper involves piling chicken, frozen wild blueberries, sweet potatoes, and red onions onto a sheet pan, slathering on mustard and balsamic vinegar, and roasting until tender. While you’re add it, pop in a sheet pan of the Roasted Cabbage below. Clean up is easy.

“ALMOST VEGAN” LINGUINE WITH CAULIFLOWER PECAN ALFREDO

Pasta with cream sauce, only no cream. That luscious texture comes instead from a combo of cauliflower blended with pecans and finished with a shower of Parmesan. If you want to see how this comes together, check out my video over on Instagram.

SLOW COOKER POT ROAST WITH VEGETABLES

To me, pot roast is the very definition of comfort cooking. It is hearty and soul satisfying. The slow cooker does a terrific job with pot roast, but you can also roast it in the oven (instructions for that are in the recipe headnote).

RESET BUTON SALAD WITH CARROT MISO GINGER DRESSING

I like to lighten things up sometimes with one of my favorite colorful salads. The Carrot Miso Dressing is all done in the blender and darn tasty. Plus, this crunchy salad feels like you’re giving your insides a deep cleaning.

ROASTED CABBAGE WEDGES WITH MISO GINGER SCALLION DRESSING

Cut cabbage into generous wedges and roast until it begins to caramelize. Meanwhile, whisk together a savory ginger, scallion, miso butter. Drizzle it over the top just before serving. Delicious!

BAKED PUMPKIN DONUTS WITH BROWN BUTTER GLAZE

Baked Pumpkin Donuts

These should go on your baking to do list at least once this fall. Tender and sweet, they can be dusted with confectioners’ sugar or crowned with brown butter glaze. They require a donut pan, which is a worthy investment. I like to bake them in a mini donut pan as well.
