I made this over the holiday season and it was a hit. All veggies and packed full of flavor you can’t beat.
To make the prep a little easier look for pre-riced cauliflower like this in the store:
Spicy Zucchini Cauliflower Rice
(Adapted from Divalicious Recipes)
1 head cauliflower
1 zucchini trimmed and cut into cubes
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 jalapenos deseeded and chopped
6 spring onions finely chopped
½ teaspoon chilli powder
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
Trim the leaves and stalks from the cauliflower and cut into florets.
Make the cauliflower rice by either grating the florets, or using a food processor to blitz them.
Place the cauliflower rice on a parchment paper lined baking tray and drizzle with half of the oil.
Bake for 15 minutes, turning over half way through with a spoon or spatula.
Heat half of the olive oil in a frying pan.
Add the zucchini and cook for 5 – 8 minutes until slightly golden.
Add the jalapeno and spring onions and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Add the spices and stir thoroughly. Set aside.
When the cauliflower rice is cooked, stir in the spicy zucchini mixture until all of the cauliflower is coated.
