Happy Tuesday! Hope all is well where you are! The countdown is on at our house! Friday at noon- school is out until next year! YAY!! I love the no real schedule and not having to wake up at 5:30! Oh, and also having our kids around more! 🙂
Last night I did a meatless Monday meal. I made an array of sautéed mushrooms with garlic and balsamic vinegar, baked artichoke in white wine and garlic sauce, roasted beets, baked brie (but I forgot to take a photo of it), and baked Canyon Bakehouse focaccia bread! Yummy! We don’t usually do meatless monday, however I thought it sounded good.
Here are the recipes from Meatless Monday:
Garlic Balsamic sautéed Mushrooms:
2 Portobello Mushrooms
1 bunch button mushrooms
1 bunch shiitake mushrooms
2 cloves of garlic
Clean and chop mushrooms.
Add evoo and garlic to a pan. Sautee until soft.
Add mushrooms. Cook until soft. Enjoy!
I ate these with the brie on the focaccia 🙂
White wine and garlic steamed artichoke:
Prep Artichoke for cooking- Here is a YouTube video to help incase you have never done it before 🙂 http://youtu.be/aDxaIUJzd5Y
Cut Artichoke in half and arrange in a baking dish.
Sprinkle Garlic and S&P over the artichoke.
Pour white wine or chicken stock on the bottom of the pan.
Cover with foil to steam the artichoke. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes.
Peel your beets. They can stain your hands so wearing gloves is an option.
Chop beets into bite size pieces.
Drizzle with evoo or coconut oil. Sprinkle with S&P.
Roast on a baking sheet until they start to caramelize. Usually 350 degree oven for 30 min.
I save leftover cold beets for salads during the week. Yum!
Canyon Bakehouse Focaccia:
Remove from package and toast in the oven. It is delicious! I love their baked goods! One of the best gf breads ever! Also love that I can buy some products at Target!
Place round of brie in a baking dish. Bake in oven until cheese starts looking puffy but not to the point of it exploding… I have had this happen. It still tastes great but doesn’t look as pretty!
Spread on the veggies and bread! Yummy!
