Now You’re Cooking!

This month I have been working with Athletic Brewing Company to support their Give Dry A Try initiative for the month of January. If you are looking to enjoy the taste of a craft brew, but want to avoid alcohol, Athletic Brewing Company is the perfect pairing. They have some great food and brew pairings on their website. So, if you’re looking to Give Dry a Try, why not enjoy some meals that pair well with Athletic Brewing’s non-alcoholic beers? 

Cerveza Atletica – Working Late Spicy Tacos – Now You’re Cooking 

Here is a Taco Tuesday recipe that will be a crowd-pleaser with friends and family. This recipe allows you to enjoy tacos within 15 minutes when you get home. It is perfect for when you want an easy, but delicious dinner after a long day at the office.


– A Can of chickpeas, drained

– 1 Tablespoon olive oil

– A Can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

– 1 Avocado – cut in half and remove the pit.

– Corn tortilla

– Veggies 


Heat oil in a frying pan. When hot, toss in drained chickpeas and toss to coat, and cook in oil. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Chop one chipotle pepper from the can and toss it in the chickpeas along with a scoop of sauce from the can (quick and dirty).  Toss to coat all the chickpeas. Mix in chili and paprika if available. 

Next top 1 tortilla with spicy chickpeas, 1/4 of the avocado, and veggies and enjoy with an ice-cold Cerveza Atletica. A classic pairing for a busy work night. Cerveza Atletica is a Mexican-inspired Light Copper with a smooth body and clean finish. It is a great complement to smoky, spicy chickpea tacos with fresh avocado. Give this quick dinner a try and pair it with a cold brew.

Upside Dawn Golden  – Healthy Pizza Night – Now You’re Cooking 

Who doesn’t like pizza? If you’re looking to enjoy pizza without the guilt, you could try a cauliflower crust. Upside Dawn is a classic golden style that has been crafted to remove gluten* and will pair well with a gluten-free pizza. 

Ingredients: For the cauliflower crust:

– 12 Cups of Cauliflower cut into florets (about 2 medium heads or 3 lbs.)

– 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Garlic minced

– 1/2 tsp Salt

– 1 tsp Italian Seasoning

– Pepper

– 1 1/3 Cup + 4 Tbsp Parmesan cheese grated and divided (about 3.5 oz)

– 2 Large egg whites 


Process the cauliflower until it is fine. It should be like the texture of rice. Place the cauliflower into a large bowl and microwave for 7 minutes. Stir, and microwave for an additional 7 minutes. Then, let the cauliflower stand until cool enough to handle (approximately 10 minutes). Next, dump the cauliflower into a thin flat kitchen towel (not terrycloth) and ring out ALL the excess moisture – this is the key to a crust that isn’t soggy. 

After that, transfer the cauliflower back into a large bowl and add in the garlic, salt, Italian seasoning, a pinch of pepper, and 1 1/3 cups of Parmesan. Stir until fully mixed, and then add the egg whites, mixing until well mixed. Next, divide the cauliflower into 4 balls (about 1/2 cup each) and spread onto the pizza pan, leaving a ridge for the crust. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. While the crust bakes, get out your favorite tomato sauce (gluten-free), and shredded mozzarella cheese (gluten-free), and select charcuterie, veggies, etc. 

After the crust comes out of the oven, cool for 5 minutes. Next up, spread with sauce, cheese, and toppings.  Return to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until browned and melted. Now you have a great-tasting pizza paired with delicious golden ale.
