Cauliflower, Mashed Potato Waffle Stuffed Crust Pizza

To be honest I haven’t been very creative with my meals lately not have I been successful with what I’m creating. That is due to the fact that I’m now choosing to focus on creating artwork again, and for some reason my brain cannot take on creating delicious beautiful foods as well as create artwork. I’m used to this issue, but I’m celebrating now over creating this masterpiece, all while completely burnt out and exhausted.

This is basically my version of an easy gluten free pizza. If you aren’t in the mood for pizza you can utilize the waffle for burgers as the buns, avocado toast, sandwiches, and adding in the vegan cheese is optional.

Recipe:

2 yellow potatoes

4 cauliflower florets

1/3 cup gluten free oat flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 flax egg ( 1 tablespoon flax seed powder 3 tablespoons water stir to combine let sit for a few minutes)

1/3 tsp garlic powder

1/3 tsp onion powder

1/3 tsp sea salt

Few dashes black pepper

Tomato sauce of choice for topping

Vegan cheese of choice ( I used chao slices)

Pizza toppings of choice I added mushrooms, onions, and peppers.

Directions:

Cut up the potatoes and add those and the cauliflower florets to a medium size pot of water. Allow them to cook fully which took about 32 minutes.

Once the cauliflower and potatoes cooked I chose to make simple and very basic mash by mashing them up with a fork, if you are blessed to own a potato masher utilize that you all means. ( You can use leftover mashed potatoes if you have those)

Add the seasonings to the mash and mix well.

Add in the 1/3 cup gf oat flour with the baking soda and flax egg. Mix well to combine.

Let the mixture set in the fridge 10 minutes.

Roast the toppings for 10 minutes while the waffle batter is in the fridge.

I greased my waffle iron with coconut oil. Heat the waffle iron between the 2 and 3 setting.

Now add about 1/2 of a cup of the waffle batter to the waffle iron and press it out a bit.

Top it with a slice of vegan cheese or shredded cheese whichever you choose. Then top the cheese slice with the waffle batter to cover the cheese.

Let the waffle cook through twice to get crisp and firm.

Carefully remove.

Add to a baking tray or pizza tray then put on pizza toppings.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

Enjoy!

No Added Sugar Applesauce

This is my second time ever making homemade cooked apple sauce. This time I opted for a no added sugar version. This is quite easy to make. I used my crock pot so that is how I’ll be directing this recipe to be prepared. If using another form of cooking like insta pot or stove top you’ll have to adjust seeing I can’t say how those methods will go.

Besides the peeling and cutting up of the 12 apple I used this recipe is quite basic and simple and I assume fool proof.

You can use whatever apples you choose I used gala apples seeing that’s what I had an abundance of. Obviously different apples will have a different either sweet or more sour flavor to the final apple sauce. Also if you like to add a sweetener feel free, but honestly this was so tasty by omitting any added sweeteners.

Recipe :

12 gala apples peeled and cut up

1/2 cup filtered water

1/2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tbsp cinnamon

Directions :

In your crock pot add in the peeled and cut up apples.

Add in the water and lemon juice and stir to coat all the apples.

Now add in the cinnamon.

Cook on high for 2 to 3 hours.

Once the apples are fully cooked I simply mashed them with a fork, but a immersion blender or potato masher would work well. I have neither.

This was so tasty still warm, but just as good cold.

I’d say it will keep well for 2 to 3 days in an air tight container in your fridge.

Enjoy!
