RICED CAULIFLOWER TACO BOWLS

So I’ve jumped on the riced cauliflower bandwagon. It’s tasty and a much healthier alternative to rice or other grains.  Tonight we made riced cauliflower taco bowls and they were so tasty!  Tacos are a favorite in our house and we eat some version of them at least once a week so they can get a little boring.  Enter the taco bowl.  All the taco fixings thrown in a bowl!  We made ours with ground turkey and topped with black beans, store-bought salsa, cheese, and avocado.  Quick, easy, fun, and bonus – my 15 month old son gobbled it right up!

Many stores sell cauliflower already riced, but if you can’t find it you can easily throw cauliflower florets (1 medium sized head) into a food processor for a couple seconds to get the same effect.  Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan.  Add the cauliflower and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Cook until just tender and slightly browned – about 10 minutes.  Remove to a bowl and set aside.

In the same pan, add another 2 tablespoons of oil and the ground turkey.  Cook until no longer pink and cooked through.  Add taco seasoning and cook per package directions. You can certainly make your own taco seasoning (tons of recipes on Pinterest!), but for convenience I used store-bought.  You can also sub your favorite meat – ground beef, chicken, or pork would all be great.

To serve pile rice in a bowl and top with turkey taco mixture and your favorite taco toppings.  And for the heck of it add some sour cream – you’ve saved calories from the cauliflower so you deserve it!  Enjoy!
