Cauliflower Rice Bowls

I’m late to the cauliflower party, but you know what they say. Better late than never. I truly just discovered cauliflower rice and it’s changing my life. LOL.

You can make these Cauliflower Rice Bowls in a big batch and portion for two-three days of lunches, or you can make it for a single dinner to feed your family.

The below recipe will either serve 2-4 people (depending on how much you like to eat) or can stretch across 2-4 meals, again, depending on how much you like to eat. For me, I portioned three lunches, and I savored every bite.

Cauliflower Rice Bowls

Ingredients

For the Cauliflower Rice Bowl

  • 1 bag of cauliflower rice
  • Three links of Applegate chicken sausage (I used the spinach and feta)
  • A handful of diced cherry tomatoes (sundried works too!)
  • Two handfuls of spinach

For the Sauce

  • 1 TBS cashew butter (per serving)
  • 1 TBS pesto (per serving)
  • Splash of water to thin the sauce

*Double or triple depending on your caloric consumption goals, needs, or personal tastes and preference!

Directions

  1. Make your sauce by taking a 1:1 ratio of cashew butter and pesto. Adding a dash of water and blending using a hand blender or whisking until sauce reaches a thinned and incorporated consistency
  2. Sautee the chicken sausage until nearly cooked through. I like my sausage to be a little crispy so I sautee until it’s nearly cooked before moving forward
  3. Add cauliflower rice and sautee while stirring frequently until soft and starts to turn slightly translucent
  4. Add tomatoes and spinach while stirring until both start to wilt
  5. Stir in sauce mixture until fully incorporated and combined

The best part? These ingredients can be replaced or substituted depending on what you have in your fridge!
