Tuesday night, I made a meal which Tommy called “one of his all-time favorites.” This is a big deal, so I thought I’d share it with you! How does a Primal Rice Bowls Recipe sound to you?
Most of it was pretty standard – a burrito bowl! But what he was really excited about was the rice, so I will share how to make that!
Here’s a little preview of the meal!
Doesn’t that look delicious? Since most of the items are just the item chopped up, I won’t explain all of that. But the rice – here goes!
In your food processor, “rice” your cauliflower. If you’ve been following me a while, you’ve seen how! Do the same to half a white onion, and mix it all together. When you’re done with cooking your chorizo, leave the grease in the pan, and add some Kerrygold butter. Add a little diced chili and some tomato paste, as well as garlic and salt (or garlic salt!) and any other seasonings that intrigue you! Once the butter is melted and it’s all mixed together, put the “rice” (cauliflower and half diced onion) into the mix and cook it on low until the rice is soft and reddish yellow, like this:
Then, the options are endless, both as far as toppings/accompaniments that can go with it as well as how you want to serve it! I may or may not have been eating it with chips as a dip (without the greens) while I wrote this blog!
Here’s the burrito bowl/salad in all its glory!
You may have noticed in my teaser video that I talked about El Salvadoran crema/sour cream. It’s delicious, and something Tommy picked up at the Milk Pail, a local store! If you don’t have that, I often recommend Greek Yogurt (or Icelandic) as a substitute for sour cream, with extra protein! Have you ever tried that!
If not, and if you’re especially intrigued by the Icelandic yogurt, I have a treat for you – a giveaway to a 30-Day Supply of Siggi’s Yogurt!
Obviously, I recommend getting the plain, whole yogurt (4% milk fat), because as you know, I am all about the fat, and not a fan of sugar… And that’s the idea behind Siggi’s – simple ingredients and minimal sugar!
Another way that I love to eat it (aside from plain – seriously!), is to use it to mix chocolate Shakeology into. It makes an insanely healthy chocolate mousse!
Here’s how you can enter!
Big thanks to Siggi’s for sponsoring the giveaway!
Just a reminder: My next challenge group starts this Monday, and is focused on Shakeology! It will also include general fitness and nutrition for a week for anyone who needs that plus support, but the reason it is called “Shake Up July” is because we are going to challenge ourselves to drink Shakeology every day for a week. And yes, there will be prizes! If you don’t already have a Shakeology home direct subscription, or a supply of it, you can get the taste sampler!
Blogs that are coming up next: Why I’m not sweating for the wedding (and what I am doing instead), and my recap of Blogfest!
So, what’s your favorite healthy meal?
