Bahn Mi Cauliflower

Bahn Mi Cauliflower

Yep, eating veggies can be absolutely delicious and bursting with flavor! The proof is in this Bahn Mi Cauliflower bowl.

Here are the reasons why: lime juice, sriracha sauce, garlic, and coconut aminos always make everything taste better.

Cauliflower rice is also one of my vegetable tricks because it is high in fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that can protect against cancer and enhance weight loss! It’s really all about how you make the vegetables. Spices, sauces, and oils make a huge difference—even for the pickiest eaters.

I would triple (or more) this recipe because it saves well (add the sauce later) and makes for quick and healthy meals throughout the week. It’s easy to fall into the trap of eating toxic, processed foods when you are hungry and short on time. However, if you meal prep with this Bahn Mi Cauliflower bowl, or many of my other recipes, you will have scrumptious cancer-fighting meals stacked up in your fridge, ready to chow down!
