Solo Saturday with Cauliflower

Despite the fact that I live with 3, sometimes 4 other people that I am related to. I often find myself with an entire day to myself. (In other words, my family makes plans without me…)

I started off my solo Saturday with my favorite breakfast. Almond Milk French Toast.

After my lovely breakfast, I went to my monthly spa appointment. Facial, fingers and toes!

Oh and I found the perfect color. OPI Most Honorable Red.

Apparently spending the afternoon getting pampered is exhausting. I refueled with some fro yo and crab rangoons.

  1. Make tomato paste: Cook tomatoes on a medium heat until they are soft and soupy. Cool to room temperature and blend into a paste. (Do in advance, takes about 45 minutes)
  2. Fry onions until they are golden brown
  3. Fry ginger garlic paste with the onions
  4. Add tomato paste, salt, pepper and turmeric
  5. Add a head of cauliflower cook until cauliflower is tender ( 20 minutes)
  6. Garnish with cilantro and dig in!

After eating and photographing, I spent the remainder of my evening studying. I managed to balance a bit of work and play into a successful day filled with delicious food, relaxation and studying.

How do you spend a solo day?
