BM #98 Week 2 Day 2 - 

For the second day, I have chosen this variation of a Burrito bowl with cauliflower rice.

We love such Burrito bowls where the components are all customizable. I have observed that my kids don't complain about the beans in such bowls. The kids love when the bowl is arranged with vibrant colors. 

My older one felt the spices a little bland to her taste and so I drizzled some hot sauce in her portion whereas this was perfect for my little one. Needless to say the adults needed some hot sauce as well.

This made for a wonderful weekend lunch.

In a pan on high heat, add a splash of oil and stir fry the onions until they are slightly charred but retain their crispness.

  2. For a brief period, Costco used to sell cauliflower rice in the fresh vegetables section. That made it so easy. Coming to the burrito bowl, you are right, the colorful plate will definitely get the kid approval faster.

  3. Such a colourful burrito bowl. Adding cauliflower rice is such a brilliant idea. Looks so yum.
