This is it: this is the recipe that will save your butt in a jiffy. I think the best thing about this recipe is that you can substitute AS MUCH as you wish. You can use absolutely any variety of vegetables, fresh or frozen, in this recipe. As long as it blends, you can add it.
Each and every week our family tries out a brand new recipe version of this basic recipe. Some of our favorite vegetable swaps include:
- Bell Peppers
- Sun-dried tomatoes
And, while we are on the subject of substituting, I also love to add in the following on any given day:
- Hemp seeds
- Sunflower Seeds
- Pepita seeds
While I urge you to have as much fun with this as possible, I also encourage you to try to stick to the ingredient amounts for best taste. If you substitute the cauliflower for broccoli or zucchini, I advise you to stick with the 1 cup amount. The same goes for the seeds and nuts.
If you are a big spice lover like me, get crazy and add in 2 jalapeno peppers if you wish!
If it blends, you can toss it into this homemade vegetable-packed pasta sauce recipe!
P.s. I highly recommend this Food Processor as I am a bit in love with it at the moment (and for the next 15 years).
