This is the ultimate go-to for leftovers. Making a large batch of rice in advance ensures a way to make use of some leftovers. Combine little bits of anything in your fridge, and add a few more fresh or frozen ingredients and you have an instant one-dish meal. In most restaurants, it’s usually 90% rice, and 10% nutritional substance. When making it at home, use a 50/50 ratio of rice to everything else, with plenty of nutritious ingredients, making it a more balanced meal. Adding the cauliflower “rice” is the best way to ensure lots of nutrients are in this dish. You won’t even notice that it’s there!! If you’re on a grain-free / paleo / primal diet, then substitute with quinoa, or skip the rice altogether, and just use cauliflower rice ;)
