Cauliflower Rice Bowl

BY : PUBLISHED : March 8th, 2017 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

The cauliflower rice is awesome on its own but an edible bowl gives it a nice boost. This avocado bowl provides a hearty serving of healthy fat…and means less dishes when you’re done.

Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 cups of cauliflower
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 3/4 cup of chickpeas
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Salsa/hot sauce/nutritional yeast (for topping)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400. Then, blend cauliflower in a food processor until it forms a rice.
  • Over medium heat, cook cauliflower with olive oil until warm (3-4min). Add in spices (I used salt and pepper, garlic powder and cayenne but you can mix it up)
  • Add chickpeas to rice and cook for an additional 5+ minutes. While this is cooking, take your avocado, cut it in half lengthwise, remove the pit and scoop out a thin layer of the meat. This can be saved to be used as a topping for your cauli-rice mix or omitted completely. Lightly salt and pepper the avocado remains.
  • Once the rice is done, remove from heat, scoop rice into each half of the avocado, and place both filled halves in the oven on a baking sheet for 7-9 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let slightly cool, and proceed to top with hot sauce, salsa, and/or nutritional yeast.
