Cooking with Pinterest

I'm happy to admit to being a Pinterest addict, but one of the things I find it truly useful for is recipes. I meal plan, sort of, and I'm always looking for something new, quick and easy to try out. When I find it I pin it, and sometimes I just search Pinterest itself.

This week I picked two new recipes from Pinterest, Brown Rice Greek Salad and Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese.

Brown Rice Greek Salad

The Brown Rice Greek Salad is originally from The Lemon Bowl. I left out the corn, and I'd do that next time too. This one is a definite keeper though. Delicious. And will suffice as a vegetarian meal on a hot day! When it's hot I only want to eat salads, but it's a matter of keeping the whole crew happy too. Which is where the next dish comes in. Pasta.

Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese

The Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese is from Not Quite Nigella. I added a grated carrot and zucchini, to up the veg factor as I couldn't be bothered with a separate salad. Looked fantastic and went down really well with the boys.

 It got a little rich for me towards the end, but it was a warm night, not the best for a hot creamy pasta dish. Probably a crisp green side salad would have stopped that! Silly me. The funny thing was Jamie Oliver was on the television that night cooking the same dish! I'm going to compare versions. I can't help myself, do you do that too?

Just remember - no corn in the salad, and don't forget the bacon in the mac and cheese!
