Hi everyone and happy new week! Although I don’t share many recipes here on the blog I do enjoy cooking. My lifestyle has changed over the last few years to prepare mostly meals for just the two of us, so I keep it simple…

Simple as in salads, protein and vegetables with not a whole lot of ingredients or prep involved. Today I’m sharing a favorite side dish, and speaking of dish I made the bowl way back in college when I was an art student and fell in love with throwing pottery:~}}. So read on and I promise that this dish is not what you think and can also be made into a main course!

Why yes, I do have a pink food processor and it’s something that doesn’t sit out on the counter so I decided to indulge my girly side when I recently needed to replace the old one. I’ve provided the affiliate link above if you need one and it comes in every color!

It’s Cauliflower Mango Rice and since I live in an area where mangos grow wild, I always have plenty of it that I freeze in zip seal bags. Mango is so tasty sweet and good for us with plenty of vitamin C…

But today we are about chopping, dicing and blending and here is my take on the best Cauliflower Rice with mango…
Easy Cauliflower Rice With Mango

Ingredients:One large head of cauliflower cut into florets

3 tablespoons olive oil
One medium onion
One small mango chopped into small pieces
The juice of one lemon
Parsley to garnish
Pulse cauliflower in food processor in small batches until it resembles rice in size
Heat oil in a large sauté pan and when the oil is good and hot add the onions and cook until golden brown. Add cauliflower and cook while stirring frequently for no more than 3 to 5 minutes until tender then add mango and stir.

Remove from heat, place in a large serving bowl and garnish with parsley. You can serve this as a side in place of rice and add sautéed shrimp or chicken to make a main dish. Yum and if you DO have young kiddos it’s a great way to sneak in those veggies!
