This meal is honestly one of our absolute favorites! Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowls have been a huge hit in my family. Even my 4 year old loves it, and has no clue that he is eating a vegetable in place of “real” rice. He likes to eat anything in a bowl, so we have had good luck mixing in plenty of healthy ingredients. He does pass on the radishes, but I’m pretty sure most preschoolers are not radish fans!
This Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl can be easily adapted to work with any allergies, as it is already gluten free. Personally, I pass on the cheese and sour cream to keep it dairy free as well. Another perk is that the cauliflower can be riced ahead of time and frozen. I always have at least one bag of frozen cauliflower rice on hand. And this marinade is healthy and seriously delicious!
The ingredients to the marinade are seen below. I like to make the full recipe, and save half as a dressing to go on top of the burrito bowl. The other half is used to marinate the chicken.
For the toppings, I like to use plenty of fresh vegetables with crunch. Romaine lettuce, radishes, jalapeño, cilantro, tomatoes, and cucumber go perfectly with this burrito bowl. I also like to squeeze some fresh lime over the top, and serve it with either fresh avocado slices, or avocado crema. Or use both toppings! You can never have too much avocado, after all.
