I usually like to have brown rice when I have rice but, I recently discovered a new way to have rice...Cauliflower rice! It's so easy to and takes far less time to cook then brown rice! Did you know that cauliflower has more Vitamin C then an orange? Yep! In fact this entire cauliflower rice dish is filled with Vitamin C from the cauliflower, red pepper, peas, and pineapple. I love sweet and savory dishes! This dish is just that with a sweet asian pineapple sauce and all this veggie goodness!
Asian Pineapple Cauliflower Rice
Servings: 2-4 (2 main or 4 side dishes)
1 head cauliflower
1/2 cup peas
1/2 red pepper, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup canned pineapple chunks
2 green onions, chopped
1/8 cup almonds, chopped
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
3 Tbs. pineapple juice
2 Tbs. hoisin sauce
1. Chop the cauliflower into bite sized pieces. In a food processor blend the cauliflower until it resembles a "rice" like consistency.
2. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Cook the cauliflower rice, peas, red pepper, carrots, and garlic until almost tender. Then stir in sauce ingredients.
3. Place the cauliflower rice in a serving dish and top with pineapple, green onions, chopped almonds, and red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
