High protein to calories ratio
One-Skillet Cauliflower Rice & Veggies
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms (white or baby Bella both work great)
1 10-12oz package of frozen riced cauliflower
1 cup fresh or frozen diced bell peppers
1 tbsp coconut aminos
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Heat a large skillet on the stove top over medium heat. Add the mushrooms & peppers to the skillet and cover. Let sauté for 6-8 minutes, or until the mushrooms & peppers are tender.
While the mushrooms and peppers cook, steam riced cauliflower according to instructions on package; strain.
Once the mushrooms & peppers are fully cooked, strain any access water in the skillet.
Add the steamed & strained riced cauliflower, coconut aminos, & garlic powder to the skillet. Mix well, then cover.
Bring heat up to medium-high & let cook for another 4-5 minutes, *WITHOUT* flipping or mixing...this help it thicken & the veggies to absorb more of the coconut aminos.
Remove from heat, adjust to desired taste & enjoy!
Swap frozen cauliflower florets for frozen riced cauliflower. Just steam the florets according to the instructions on the bag, strain excess water, then process into rice using a food processor OR chop the florets into small rice-like pieces with a knife.
If you don’t have coconut aminos, you can use soy sauce instead.
I prefer & recommend coconut aminos because it’s MUCH lower in sodium than soy sauce.
If you use frozen bell peppers, steam them in the microwave before adding them to the skillet.
You can add any other veggies you’d like…I usually add diced onion with the mushrooms & peppers, too!
If you want a spicier flavor profile, add ½ tsp paprika & replace the coconut aminos/soy sauce with hot sauce!
Let overs stay good refrigerated in an airtight container for 3-4 days!
