Bloody Mary with Spiralized Pickles

There’s something extremely comforting about lazily waking up on a weekend, heading to a local brunch spot and starting the day off with a spicy, horseradish-y Bloody Mary.

Whether you’re planning on a Sunday Funday, hosting friends for brunch, recovering from the night before, or just want a cocktail to accompany your spiralized frittata, I have an easy and fun Bloody Mary recipe for you today that uses spiralized pickles as a garnish/ingredient!

Bloody Mary with Spiralized Pickles

Not only are these spiralized pickles an impressive garnish, they add a tangy kick that complements the spiciness of this famous morning cocktail.

The spiralized pickles become infused with the horseradishy tomato sauce and are an extra treat while you’re drinking the Bloody.

Not only is this cocktail a vision, it’s also delicious, thanks to the high-quality marinara sauce used from Victoria Fine Foods. By using this healthy marinara sauce, you’ll enjoy not only the flavors from the horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, pickles, and vodka, but your ingredients will pop with this sauce.

You’ll want to use the celery to dip in the Bloody, this cocktail’s so flavored packed!

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to use some of the fun cocktail tools that we received as wedding gifts. We’re such wine people, we rarely make cocktails – but from what I’ve learned after concocting this Bloody Mary is that making cocktails is an art – much similar to baking. The right combination of flavors and ratios of alcohol to mixers can yield some pretty incredible flavors!

I can’t wait to see all of your spiralized pickles on Bloody Marys this summer!

I moved to England and the food I truly miss the most is the Victoria marinara sauce sold at Costco. I seriously need to beg UK Costco to start importing it! Can wait to try this recipe.

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
