There are some basic, go-to recipes that we all have in our back pocket, or at least we strive to have. They combine the textures and flavors we love and they fill us up. Hopefully they’re also healthy and feed our need for vitamins, minerals, fiber, and all that other good stuff that makes our body healthy and strong.
Here’s my latest go-to rice recipe that combines some of my favorites: Pico de gallo, cauliflower rice, black beans, green onions, and a simple but great balance of seasonings. It’s also very flexible, so you can replace the beans with another source of protein and add some roasted chopped veggies to it.
This has been my latest favorite way to make cauliflower rice, regardless of the seasoning. And if you have some soft the ingredients made ahead of time, the dish comes together even faster. I recommend having the salsa and beans made ahead of time. I use canned beans, but if you’re soaking and cooking your own beans, definitely make them a day or so ahead of time. When I make my own beans, I make a big batch, and then freeze the leftovers in portions for future recipes.
