Do you ever feel like you’re eating the same veggies over and over? I love my veggies! Roasted brussel sprouts are a fav, as well as cauliflower….whether it be mashed or riced. So as I looked at both veggies in my fridge, I decided to use them together to create this side dish.
I have my favorite vegetables and it seems like I gravitate to those specific veggies when I’m shopping. I suppose that’s all well and good but sometimes you just need a change. If not changing the actual vegetable, then why not change up how it’s prepared?
I make cauli-rice all the time but one day had some brussels to use….so I added it in with the rice and it was yum! I like the colors too. (sometimes when I have a plate of tan colored food, I add green onions, parsley or cilantro to the dish, just to give it color 🙂 It was just as easy as making cauli-rice because it’s done all at the same time. So next time you’re in there “ricing” your cauliflower, toss in a green veggie to add color and nutrients! I think next time I’ll try some asparagus or broccoli!
- 3 cups cauliflower florets
- 3 cups brussel sprouts
- 3 tbsp ghee
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp coconut aminos**
- 2 tsp sesame oil**
- 2 tbsp chopped green onions**
- 2 tsp sesame seeds**
- In a food processor, use the grater attachment and slowly add cauliflower & brussels until they are all "riced".
- Warm a large wok or pan, melt the ghee.
- Add the cauli/brussel rice and warm, mixing frequently to warm through and through.
- Toss in your garlic, garlic powder, salt, pepper, coconut aminos & sesame oil and mix until combined.
- Keep flame on low, stirring up occasionally for about 5 min.
- When plating, top with some of the green onions and sesame seeds.
- **You can always take 1/2 the cauli/brussel "rice" out of pan and keep it the way it is...and halve the amounts indicated with ** and toss it in the remaining veggies in the pan. That way you have a little of both flavors - whether it be for leftovers or finicky family members 🙂
