Last week, I was inspired by a Facebook post from my friend Sandy Bass (www.SandysKitchenAdventures.com) to make a version of my kid’s favorite meal, tacos, and combine them with a new family favorite, cauliflower rice. The result? A Taco Bowl With Cauliflower Rice recipe that not only has a thick, rich sauce, but it is an Optavia Lean and Green recipe to boot!
1 lb cauliflower, steamed until very soft
1 1/4 lbs lean ground beef
2 C chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned- no sugar added)
Fresh Salsa *
Grated low-fat cheddar cheese *
Place a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add ground beef and using my favorite kitchen tool break up the beef and let it cook for 5 minutes, until browned.
Add tomatoes and seasoning and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and allow the mixture to cook for 5 minutes, until the liquid is reduced by 1/2 and thick.
While the meat is cooking, using a food processor or, my favorite kitchen tool chop steamed cauliflower up into rice-sized bits.
Place 1/2 C cauliflower rice into a bowl and top with 1/4 of the meat mixture. *Add 1 T salsa and 1 T cheese as a condiment if desired.
Medifast Recipe, Optavia Recipe, Take Shape for Life Recipe Counts: 1/2 C “rice” is 1 green, 1/4 of the beef mixture is 1 lean, 1/2 a green option. If you add the salsa (be sure to use sugar free) count it as 1 condiment. If you add the cheese, count it as 1 condiment as well.
