The Easiest Huevos Rancheros

The Kitchen Beet - Huevos Rancheros

I’m always a candidate for easy, healthy, flavorful food. Every so often, I like to make breakfast for dinner. It’s usually some combination of a green smoothie, like this one, french toast or pancakes (like the whole wheat-yogurt-cinnamon ones I contributed to Darling), maybe potatoes and definitely eggs.

Roasted Cauliflower + Butternut Squash Wild Rice Gratin

The Kitchen Beet - Roasted Cauliflower and Butternut Squash Wild Rice Gratin

While I think we can all agree casserole isn’t the most photogenic dish there ever was, this one is DELICIOUS. It’s my favorite combination¬†of a meal that feels both healthy and decadent, roasted cauliflower never fails and it’s plenty to feed a large family or keep a smaller family hooked up with lunches during the week. I strongly urge you to add this to your Thanksgiving menu. Not only will you feel like a total superstar in the kitchen, your family members will be begging for this to be on repeat for years to come.
