This is an ideal one skillet meal if you are looking for a low calorie dinner, a low carb recipe, or if you just like easy weeknight dinner ideas that taste good!
If last year was all about spiralized vegetables, this year it's all about riced veggies, especially cauliflower. Cauliflower has been a long-standing favorite substitute for bread and pasta for those wanting to watch the calories and carbs. You can also rice other vegetables such as carrots and broccoli for some extra interest. The process for ricing your own vegetables can be fussy, so I like to use the frozen kind. Frozen riced vegetables are pretty much the greatest thing since sliced bread as far as convenience and ease of us. Plus, they taste SOOO good!
I like to use the frozen Green Giant Riced Veggies (not sponsored!) because I've been able to find them everywhere and they come in lots of different varieties! For this recipe I've chosen to use the Cauliflower Medley which also includes yellow onions, green onions, peas, and carrots. You can use plain riced cauliflower if that's all that is available in your area, but see my notes on the recipe for how to replace some of the flavor lost by not using the medley.
I'll be keeping a couple of bags of these riced veggies in my freezer from here on out, because I already have a list of ideas for how to use them. So good! Enjoy!Print
