About two years ago the cauliflower rice craze began. I remember the first time I tried to make it in a food processor and I was over it because it was so unnecessarily messy. Then Trader Joe’s jumped on the opportunity to make frozen riced cauliflower and I was hooked. The first few months it was constantly out of stock and I became a hoarder. Now it’s regularly stocked and I don’t have to be as aggressive. Tonight I made a simple veggie filled cauliflower rice side to go along with some lobster tails. See below for the recipe for one serving:
- 1/2 bag of Trader Joe’s frozen cauliflower rice
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
- 1/4 cup of diced onions
- 1/2 cup of string beans
- 1/4 cup of diced mushrooms
- 1/2 cup of broccolini
- Herbes de Provence, salt, and pepper
In a pan, sauté onions in olive oil.
Add mushrooms and string beans and sauté until all vegetables are cooked.
Add the cauliflower rice, broccolini and the seasonings and sauté for 10 more minutes until the liquid from the frozen cauliflower rice evaporates. Done and done!
For those who are health conscious, this is a perfect #whole30 recipe. I also wanted to highlight what the Herbes de Provence and cauliflower rice look like as they were both from Trader Joe’s and the HdP was a new find this week.
