Cauliflower rice is such an easy way to grab an extra serving of vegetables. It cooks in just a few minutes, blends with other veggies, and pairs with any protein you are cooking. Give this recipe a try!
Rinse and Chop:
-One medium zucchini (finely chopped)
-A handful of grape tomatoes or one medium tomato of your choice
-About a cup of chopped broccoli rabe
-One scallion (green onion)
-Peel 2-3 cloves of garlic and finely chop
-Set aside one bag of pre-chopped cauliflower rice
Heat a larger skillet to medium-high, adding 3TBSP of Avocado oil (good for higher heat cooking).
-Add garlic and scallion first, stirring until lightly browned
-Add zucchini, tomatoes, and broccoli rabe next and stir until the zucchini is softened
-Last add the cauliflower rice. You will need to add more avocado oil to ensure a smooth saute. Give it a good stir.
-Add 1 tsp of pepper and 2 tsp of sea salt, stirring every few seconds to ensure even cooking and flavor distribution.
Cook to your desired tenderness, a few minutes after adding the rice the dish will be ready. Cook longer for a softer combination, or pull after 3-4 minutes for a firmer “rice”.
Remove and enjoy! This pairs great with all proteins and is great to hold as a leftover dish the next day. Feel free to personalize with any vegetable substitutions or additions you’d like!
