Meatless Meatballs with Cauliflower and Broccoli

The combination of Meatless Meatballs with Cauliflower and Broccoli just fit together like peas and carrots in the pot pie.

I just loved everything. I had my niece over for lunch, and she enjoyed it as well. So, these meatballs are obviously meatless. I do not know how they did it, but they honestly taste like a meat to me. Needless to say, they are so freaking delicious.

My family loved it too. Well, I make it quite often. I am not vegan or vegetarian, but I enjoy every few days a nice plant-based meal. I even crave salads!

To some of you, that might be strange but it is honestly true. Besides, broccoli and cauliflower are amazing in every possible way.

Meatless Meatballs with Cauliflower and Broccoli

I wanted to stay with a completely vegan meal, which is not mandatory since we are not vegans nor vegetarians.

However, I wanted to go along with the theme and create our lunch so my family can actually see that vegan lunch can be delicious. My boys are always running away from the idea but this turned around. We all truly enjoyed it.

I tossed some thawed organic broccoli and cauliflower with these meatballs and made this delicious veggie-packed spaghetti to go with it.

Meatless Meatballs with Cauliflower and Broccoli

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

This whole combo just fit together like peas and carrots in the pot pie. I just loved everything. I had my niece over for lunch, and she enjoyed it as well.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 6 Gardein Meatless Meatballs 3 per serving
  • 1 cup Frozen Broccoli
  • 1 cups frozen Cauliflower
  • Sprinkle: Lemon-Black Pepper Seasoning unsalted
  • Sprinkle: Red Chili flakes
  • Sprinkle: Dried Parsley
  • Sea Salt to taste

Garnish

  • A drizzle of Chili Oil
  • Fresh Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
  • Serve it with SuperGreen Pasta

Instructions

  1. Follow meatless meatballs cooking instructions according to a package. I prefer thawing the meatballs then just cooking them defrosted until light brown on hot oil for a couple of minutes, turning every 30-40 seconds.
  2. After meatballs are lightly brown toss them with (slightly) thawed Broccoli and Cauliflower. You could use raw, fresh vegetables, just make sure to blanch them just before tossing them with meatballs. Cook vegetables for a minute or two on medium-high heat.
  3. Season with seasoning to taste.

Notes

KITCHEN TIP: HOW TO THAW FROZEN VEGETABLES:

Put frozen vegetables in a colander or a strainer and run cold water over the vegetables until thawed. If you are thawing Spinach or kale, make sure to squeeze out excess water. I finish pasta at the same time I finish this dish so I could serve it together. This is also very easy to cook ahead and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze it for a month.

The reason why I do not keep broccoli and cauliflower longer than 2 days: It has a very particular smell if it stands in the fridge for too long.

I recommend no longer than 2 days. you can always freeze it and reheat. You can serve this with whatever you wish or eat it on its own. I like this green pasta very much.

Guacamole over Roasted Cauliflower

Guacamole over Roasted Cauliflower

Guacamole over Roasted Cauliflower

Sitting in my living room, and sipping on my first cup of freshly brewed coffee one early morning, I had cravings for roasted cauliflower.

It is nothing unusual for my cravings to start working early. Even though I am genuinely a poor breakfast eater. Coffee and maybe a pastry that is about it for me on the most mornings. However, that morning was different. I was craving this. My thoughts were running wild.

Guacamole over Roasted Cauliflower

Building a recipe fast and furious in my head before lunchtime starts. What could I combine it with? Of course, the roasted chicken came to mind. Which by the way was a delight having with this roasted cauliflower and simple, classic guacamole.

The simplicity of this dish is absolutely amazing, but the complex combination that brings you sour with a hint of spiciness, along with savory smooth taste.

It is just a perfect, healthy and a delicious side dish. Bringing together power foods such as cauliflower, avocado, garlic, and lemon with an explosion of flavor that you will love when they are combined together in a unique way.

Author Sandra | Sandra’s Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head Cauliflower fresh/medium size,
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • Sea salt pinch

Guacamole:

  • 1 Avocado peeled/pitted
  • 6 cloves Garlic roasted and peeled
  • Lemon Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp. Chili Pepper powder more if desired
  • 1 tsp. Olive oil
  • Salt to taste 1/4 tsp.
  • Fresh Mint 1 sprig/6-8 leaf, or more + for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Wash cauliflower, then separate cauliflower into medium flower buds (it’s alright if some are smaller than the other). Toss the flower buds with the few pinches of sea salt (or any on hand) and olive oil (add garlic cloves to roast too), Roast for 30-35 minutes. After roasting, transfer the cauliflower buds on the kitchen paper towel to absorb extra moisture. Set aside.
  3. While cauliflower is cooling a bit (10 minutes), start with the Guacamole. Wash, open, and pit the avocado. You can use more than one, but ultimately one should be enough. Add all the ingredients, and peel roasted garlic cloves. Roughly chop garlic into smaller pieces before mashing them with the avocado. Season it with salt to taste. I had to add more than a few pinches until it reached my desirable taste. If you like guacamole smooth, then place everything in the food processor, and for a chunky version just mashes with a masher or a fork.
  4. You can mix guacamole gently with the roasted cauliflower, or serve it on the side, spooning it over the cauliflower when you serve it.
  5. Garnish with extra mint, and lemon slices/wedges.

Recipe Notes

Did you know that you can make an amazing pasta dish just by combining guacamole and pasta, adding shrimp or chicken to the mix is another level of deliciousness?! Recipe: Spaghetti in Avocado Sauce and Shrimps If you like more char look on your cauliflower, let it cook/roast for up to 45 minutes.
