Veggie frustration

Friday, July 05, 2013

Last year I made the cauliflower pizza crust and it turned out great. I made it last weekend and while it tasted good, it was stuck to the pan. Thought I'd try again tonight to make "breadsticks". Once again it stuck to the pan. I know I used different cheese with these last two batches. I researched the recipe again and found one that recommends parchment paper so I think I'll try that tomorrow.

My husband is so excited to know how to use his grill ow that we're grilling chicken kebabs tomorrow. I may need to get some cherry tomatoes though. He can have the mushrooms and I'll take the tomatoes. At least it gets him eating veggies. I've found a few he likes so I try to incorporate them into the menu. He'd be happy eating just bread and meat.

The otters were sleeping today and didn't want to put on a show. That's ok because I've watched them swim before several times and learned how to tell them apart. I also did a little exploring and found a new trail. All in all, not a bad day.

    What a unique way of healthying up a pizza! If the paper works out would you consider sharing the recipe? I would love to try it!

    Otters - wow! Parchment papers seems like a good idea!

    Sounds like you are on top of it - aluminum foil and parchment paper plus the nonstick spray and silicon baking pads all work.

  Parchment paper is a good choice. I never bake without it. Ruined too many batches of cookies.

    I used aluminum foil sprayed with olive oil. I think the first time I used regular cooking spray, but now we use a spritzer bottle with olive oil. The first recent attempt I had nonstick paper with foil on one side and parchment paper on the other. I used the foil side. When that didn't work I tried regular foil. I guess I'll try the parchment paper this time.

    You may try a non stick spray? :)

    If the parchment paper doesn't work, you could also try aluminum foil. Pretty much anything I make in the oven now is put on foil so I don't have to clean it up afterwards. You could also try spraying olive oil on the parchment or foil then wiping it off so there's just a thin later to help stop any sticking at all.

Enjoy the grill all summer! Many foods can be cooked in foil on the grill so they don't fall through. Make a sealed package of foil and you can steam veggies, cook fish, or even warm up bread.
