Cauliflower rice has been a staple for adding volume and nutrients to our meals. We often stick to just ricing a head of cauliflower and adding the riced vegetable to rice or oatmeal to increase the portion size of our main carb.
But with this "rice", we got a little fancier.
This is a throw-everything-into-the-blender kind of recipe, and it takes little time to prepare.
This is hardly a recipe, but rather an idea that can be taken in many different directions.
You Will Need
300g cauliflower (1 small head)
200g raw butternut squash
200g raw radishes
2 cups arugula
1/2 TBS liquid aminos or coconut aminos
Sea salt, pepper, & other desired seasonings
Avocado oil or other propellant-free spray
Rinse and cut cauliflower head into sections to easily fit into the blender or food processor
“Rice” (blend) cauliflower until it resembles a rice consistency
Remove cauliflower from blender, add squash chunks, radishes, and arugula to blender and blend until reaching same “rice” consistency
Heat avocado oil (or other spray) in pan and salute all of the vegetables until soft, but not too mushy (we like ours a little underdone). If using amino, add in at this point
Mix in seal salt, pepper, & other seasonings, taste test it… & enjoy all these lovely vegetables in such a beautiful medley!

What we love about this recipe:
Super easy to prepare or meal prep

We served our #RainbowRice with some Macro-Friendly E-Z-Peazy Vegan Nacho Cheese & a lil' cilantro.
One of our favorite additions to cauliflower rice is angel hair purple cabbage. Purple and green cabbage are both staples in our plant-based diets, and often make up the majority of our #BuddhaBowls or salads. Peep below for some beautiful cauliflower rice, purple cabbage, Vegan Nacho Cheese, GREEN tomatoes (aren't they cute!!), and some of our Macro-Friendly Pumpkin Chickpea Falafels :)
