Have you ever made cauliflower rice? I’m sure you have. It’s been pretty popular, especially among people who follow or have heard of the Paleo diet. But for good reason, as cauliflower rice is not only delicious, but nutritious as well! Today’s recipe features cauliflower rice made with red and orange bell peppers (hence the orange-ish color) and shallots.
I have been trying to eat more shallots lately because they are packed full of nutrients. “Ounce for ounce, they have six times more phytonutrients than the typical onion. They are second only to garlic in their ability to destroy cancer cells.” – Exert from Eating on the Wild Side, by Jo Robinson.
Whether or not they will keep me from getting cancer is besides the point, but a food packed with a lot of nutrition and flavor and that is healthy has me sold. Besides, we eat a descent number of onions in my household and mixing up the flavors with shallots adds a nice variety.
* If you do not have a food processor you can use a cheese grater to grate the cauliflower into small granules. Then finely chop remaining vegetables.
I paired my cauliflower rice with avocado, purple kale, feta cheese and pumpkin seeds.
