Vegetable “Rice”

Vegetable “rice” is a great low-carb and nutrient-dense substitute for grains.

I like to make a batch of this “rice” early in the week and add it to different meals throughout my week. It makes meal prep super easy – and adds tons of nutrients to my meals!

Here are a few great ways to add vegetable “rice” to your menu …

1. Use it as a side to a salmon fillet, juicy steak, chicken breast, chicken wings or another protein source.

2. Use it as a base for a stir-fry or this Thai coconut sauce.

3. Top it with fried eggs for a nutrient-rich breakfast.

4. Add “rice” and a can of wild salmon, sardines or tuna into a container and take it with you to work for a healthy lunch.

5. Eat it on its own as a mid-day snack — vegetable “rice” tastes great cold too, so just grab the leftovers from the fridge and enjoy!
