Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl

Who doesn't love a good burrito bowl? Now normally these things are filled with rice, cheese, and sour cream. Not my version! The rice is actually replaced by cauliflower, and it's topped with a bunch of fresh veggies and some black beans, yum! 

Here's what you'll need:
  • 2 Medium Cauliflower $6.98
  • 1 Lime $0.25
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro $0.50
  • 1 Onion $1.11
  • 2 Green Peppers $2.00
  • 3 Tomatoes $1.89
  • 2 Avocado $2.50
  • 2 cups Black Beans $1.12

**Forgot to include the can of black beans in the picture, oops!

First get your cauliflower ready. Start by cutting off the green leaves and stem so its easy to get to the cauliflower. Then cut all of the cauliflower off of the stem. It doesn't really matter how you do this because its all going in a blender in the end. 

Then, in small batches, add your cauliflower to a blender or food processor, and pulse a few times until it looks like small grains of rice. Careful not to over blend it, you don't want cauliflower mush! 2 cauliflower took me about 6 batches to get it all done, you don't want to overcrowd the blender.

After your cauliflower has been riced, cut up your bell pepper, onion, and cilantro. You can cut these however you want for your burrito bowl.

Heat a large sauce pan over medium high heat and add your cauliflower to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5-6 minutes. Then add in the lime juice and cilantro.

Remove the cauliflower rice from the pan and then add in your peppers and onions and cook until they're a little bit charred, about 5 minutes. 

Finally, cut up your tomatoes and avocado.

 Divide up the cauliflower rice, peppers and onions, tomato, avocado, and beans between 6 bowls. Each bowl should get between 1 and 2 cups of cauliflower rice.

Serve some chips and some of my Homemade Salsa on the side! 

Happy Cooking!
