Southwestern Cauliflower Rice

Lately I have been playing around with ways to fit more vegetables into my diet. Getting plenty of fruits has never been an issue for me, but I have found I am a little more picky when it comes to vegetables so it takes a bit more pre-planning. Enter in my Southwestern Cauliflower Rice recipe. Cauliflower, tomatoes, corn and spinach make this recipe a plethora of healthy vitamins & minerals. Incorporating healthy fats like avocado and feta cheese make the meal extremely satisfying and just plain yummy.

And an added bonus? The entire recipe from start to finish only takes about 15 minutes. I’d call that a win-win! Enjoy!
