1.Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Chop the cauliflower into small florets and slice the red onion into 1/4-inch strips. Drizzle with olive oil and season with a pinch or two of salt and pepper. Toss the cauliflower and onions until coated in oil, salt, and pepper then place on baking sheet.
2. Roast the cauliflower and onions in oven for 20 minutes, then stir, return them to the oven, and roast for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender and browned on the edges. Let the cauliflower cool slightly.
3. While the cauliflower and onions are roasting, make the lemon tahini dressing. Blend the tahini, water, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne, and salt until smooth, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
4. Fry the bacon in a pan until crisp. When finished place on a paper towel to collect excess oil, then chop into bite size pieces
5.Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Add them to a skillet along with the olive oil, smoked paprika, cayenne, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir and cook the chickpeas over medium heat for about five minutes, or until they sizzle and become slightly crispy. Remove the chickpeas from the heat.
6.Pull the parsley leaves from their stems and roughly chop the leaves into small pieces (about 1.5 cups loosely packed, once chopped).
7.Combine the roasted cauliflower and onions in a bowl with the spiced chickpeas and chopped parsley. Drizzle the lemon tahini dressing over top, and toss. Serve warm or cold.
Thanks to budgetbytes.com, for the inspiration for this recipe. We did change it up a bit by including adding our delicious bacon.

Grilled Sausage and Peaches With Pickled Peppers

Grilled Sausage and Peaches With Pickled Peppers

This recipe is inspired by one we found in Food and Wine, but we changed it up a bit  by grilling the peaches,  and adjusting the pickled pepper recipe.


1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
3 tablespoons Agave
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 lb mini  sweet peppers
2 jalapeños,
1 serrano pepper
1 small onion
Canola oil, for brushing
5 BOULDER SAUSAGE hot Italian sausages
4 medium peaches



1. Thinly slice the peppers and onion. Mix the vinegars with agave, salt and 1/2 cup of water until the salt dissolves. Add the peppers and onion, cover and let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

2.Light a grill and oil the grate. While it is heating, slice and remove pits from peaches. Grill the sausages over moderate heat, turning, until lightly charred and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Lightly grill the peach slices for 2 to 3 minutes. Thinly slice the sausage on the bias.
3. Arrange the grilled peaches on a platter. Top with the sausages and some of the pickled jalapeños and onion. Drizzle with the pickling liquid to taste. Serve the remaining pickles on the side.
Prep Time: 30 minutes – Cook Time: 10 minutes – Total Time: 40 minutes – Yield: Serves 6-8
