Fall 🍂 is here ya’ll, my favorite time of the year! It’s the season for cozy attire and comfort food. I am on a health journey and I’m trying to make my meals a little healthier. I call this my HARVEST CAULI FRIED RICE BOWL and it’s delish! It is my take on a fried rice bowl but keeping it a little healthier. I used cauli rice and made a yummy tahini and cashew yogurt dressing. If you’ve never tried Tahini, it’s creamy and nutty. I added the cashew yogurt to make it even creamier, I love the flavor of the combination.

This is a great meal prep & very versatile too. Use whatever veggies & protein you may have on hand. I used a variety of veggies that I had on hand and used my favorite precooked paleo chicken sausage by Sabatinos. I buy it at Costco and it tastes delicious. I always have it on hand, it’s precooked so it makes for a quick meal when I’m in a crunch. If you decide to use an uncooked sausage, the cooking time will change.

To keep the fried cauli rice lower in fat, I use veggie broth for sautéing instead of using a lot of oil or fat.

I hope you give this a try and enjoy it as much as we do. On my IG feed, I show the process on how to make it in a reel.

Thank you for stopping by.
