HOW TO MEAL PREP BURRITO BOWL
First you need to prep all the ingredients…
- Start by ricing the cauliflower with a food processor – If you don’t have one you can use frozen cauliflower rice that you can purchase at most grocery stores.
- Prepare the seasoned cauliflower rice per directions in recipe card below- this can be stored in the fridge in a covered container for up to five days.
- Store the remaining chopped up ingredients in a separate covered container in fridge till ready to assemble the bowl.
When ready to serve just assemble ingredients in a bowl and serve with freshly sliced avocado and lime wedges.
RECIPE NOTES & ADD INS
For presentation purposes I like to separate the ingredients when serving the bowl…
Combining everything together with the exception of the avocado & lime wedges is another way to serve or store this….
Optional Add ins include….
- Bell Peppers
- Green Chilies
- Extra Cilantro
