Veggie Recipes


Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Peel turnips and cut into strips to resemble shoe string potatoes. Sometimes I even use a crinkle cutter and they really resemble french fries. Make a LOT.

Spray a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil with of non-stick cooking spray. Lay the “fries” on the foil. Spray further with cooking spray.

Season with spices of your choice. French fry seasoning. Garlic and onion powders, salt & pepper. Chili powder, garlic and onion powder, cumin, salt, pepper.

Bake for about 20 minutes and turn. Bake another 10 minutes or so.

Baked Cauliflower

Cut cauliflower into bite size pieces.  Mist with Olive oil.  Add seasonings of your choice.  Bake @ 400 degrees for about 20 min.

Baked Asparagus

Spread asparagus on cookie sheet in single layer.  Mist with olive oil.  Salt & pepper.  Bake @ 400 for about 15 minutes.

Cauliflower Rice

•1 head cauliflower (or however much you want)


To make this dish the most easily and to have it come out the best, three pieces of equipment are very helpful:

- A food processor

- A microwave

- A covered (or fairly tightly coverable) microwave-safe dish

1) Process fresh cauliflower until it is the size of rice, either using the plain steel blade or the shredder blade. Alternatively, you can shred it with a hand-held grater, or even use a knife, if you have the dexterity to chop it up VERY finely.

2) Microwave it in a covered dish for about 6 minutes. DO NOT ADD WATER. Cauliflower absorbs water like crazy, and the "granules" will become gummy. To keep it fluffy, just let the moisture in the cauliflower do its work.

Add whatever seasonings you would normally use for rice or see fried rice recipe under main courses.
