Brussels Sprouts Cauliflower "Rice"
Brussels sprouts and cauliflower "Rice" can be a great low carb replacement for rice with way more nutritious benefits. Enjoy as a side dish or even on its own with some added proteins mixed in!
SET YOUR OVEN TO 325 DEGREES
- Brussels Sprouts
- Avocado Oil ( I've also used coconut oil, olive oil or bacon grease before too)
**Other spices are totally an option**
- Granulated Garlic
- Turmeric powder
Toss your Sprouts and a few cauliflower florets into your food processor, I like to aim for a 50/50 ratio of sprouts to florets.
Using the "pulse" button, blend until you get a nice "rice" like consistency. Depending on how much you packed in there you may need to open up and give a stir or two.
Throw the freshly blended "rice" into a mixing bowl. Add your seasonings of choice and enough Avocado oil for a decent coat once mixed and stir.
Toss the "rice" onto a cookie sheet. Since I was making lunch for 1 here I decided to store the rest for a couple extra meals. I've found it stores pretty well for a day or two and makes it even easier to toss on a pan and enjoy an easy side dish this way.
Toss in the oven at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. I usually take it out when the "rice" around the edges starts to brown (pictured here) and give it a stir then toss it back in, or right around 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and enjoy. I love pairing it with avocado myself but there's many options to go with from here. You can even mix in bacon or your favorite meaty proteins.
