Need a quick and nutritious dinner idea? I've got an idea for you: Fried Cauliflower Rice.
This recipe is so good! Everyone in my family loves it. Trying to cook for a picky 17 month old little girl and my husband is no small task so I count it a huge success that this recipe is one we all like.
Mary Virginia is giving me a run for my money these days as she loves all kinds of carbohydrates, yet throws most vegetables on the floor. I hear this is normal, but it can stress this dietitian momma out. Yet with this recipe, I can ensure to get those veggies in her.
My husband is one of those guys who likes a solid protein, vegetable, and starch on his dinner plate. He has made great strides in eating different kinds of meals since he has married me. He does care about eating healthfully and has been trying to eat a little less meat these days (for health and environment reasons). I can hit all of his requirements and suit his tastebuds with this recipe.
I love this recipe because I can make one meal for the entire family (less cooking and clean up), it is nourishing and healthful, it tastes really good, and it is SO simple to make.
Whether you are a busy mom of 3 trying to please everyone with 1 meal, a busy working professional with little time to cook, or just a busy person who wants to eat more healthfully, yet doesn’t want to spend half the day in the kitchen, this recipe is for you.
