Vegan healthy fried cauliflower rice with beans and veggies

imageThis is by far my favorite meal I have ever come up with.

ingredients-

2 cups cauliflower

1/2 cup red bell pepper

1/3 cup diced carrots

1/2 cup peas (I used canned)

1/2 cup dark red kidney beans (again, I used canned)

pam cooking spray or olive oil

garlic

salt and pepper

The first thing you need to do is prep the veggies.  Dice the carrots, as well as the the red bell peppers and set aside.  Next, take a head of cabbage, and cut the tops of the florets off into one to two inch cubes.  Cook the cabbage and diced carrots until the cabbage is soft, but not mushy.  Drain.  Take the carrots, and set aside.  Take the cooked cabbage and cut with a knife until the size resembles rice.

next, heat up a skillet to medium high heat, and either use spray Pam or drizzle some olive oil onto the heated pan.  Place the diced red peppers into the pan, and let cook for about two minutes.  Next add the cauliflower “rice” and then the carrots, beans and peas.

Continue to keep stirring the ingridients around.  Add minced garlic (I added about two tsp but you can always use more or less to taste).

i kept it on the pan for about five minutes, but mostly because it smelled so great that I couldn’t wait any longer to eat it!

enjoy!  This meal was huge, but the entire dish contains about 280 calories.
