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.

hi! 👋🏼 just checking in! twins are doing so well, their little personalities are really shining through. and they’re getting so big, they barely fit on my chest together anymore 😭😭 (rio is almost 11 pounds and sol is almost 10!) they’re sleeping almost 5 hours at night which gives me some rest in between nursing sessions (if I’m lucky enough that one of my older kids doesn’t wake up in between that time 🤦🏻‍♀️.) as for me, I’m coming out of the newborn fog 🙏🏼 the hardest part has been dividing my time between all FOUR of my kids, honestly. I’ll never get it right 😏 today I had my 6 week postpartum check up and I guess everything is back where it’s supposed to go 😅 because I got the green light to resume normal life again, but can we be honest…. with twin newborns, I’m in no rush to 🏋🏻‍♀️ or 🍆 , ya know? ...

the soup that broke the internet! 😜🥣haha, just kidding, but after posting this on stories, my DMs were flooded with, "share the recipe!" and then dozens of you made the soup solely based off my story videos (which is why I shared it!)⁣ 👏🏼

I'm still deep in the newborn fog to take proper photos and build an SEO-friendly blog post (it's an hours-long process), so I'm sharing it here in the meantime - just save it to refer back to! you're going to want to make this alllll winter long.⁣ ❄️

potato and brussels sprouts white bean soup w/ or w/o chicken sausage⁣ 👇🏼
serves 4-6

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
1/2 red onion, diced⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
2 carrots, diced⁣
1 large celery rib, diced⁣
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme⁣
4 cups vegetable broth (I'm using @bonafideprovisions and it's honestly a game-changer! code INSPIRALIZED for 15% off!)⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 1/2 pound bag creamer potatoes, halved⁣
1 pound chicken sausage, sliced⁣
12 ounces shredded brussels sprouts⁣
shredded Parmesan cheese (I'm loving @foragerproject's vegan Parmesan shreds)⁣
red pepper flakes to garnish⁣

heat half the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. add the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. add the cannellini beans, rosemary, thyme, and stir. add the broth, 2 cups water, and season generously with salt and pepper. bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. use an immersion blender to blend the soup. add the potatoes, bring back to a boil, and reduce heat to a medium-simmer and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.⁣

while potatoes cook, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add the chicken sausage and cook until browned. add the brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until sprouts are tender and chicken is cooked through. keep aside. if you're vegetarian, just simply omit chicken sausage.⁣

once potatoes are done, add the chicken and sprouts to the soup, stir, and serve. top with cheese and red pepper flakes.
