Chickpea & Cauliflower “Rice” Bowl

mfp ROD button finalThis easy veggie bowl from Healthy Nibbles & Bits offers up cauliflower in a whole new way, as a lower-carb and more nutrient-dense rice substitute. Packed with fiber, Vitamin A, B and K, cauliflower (which is also a cruciferous vegetable) may also offer protective benefits against certain types of cancer. The addition of roasted chickpeas add flavor, crunch and up the protein for a satisfying dinner or grab-and-go lunch.

    What makes the sodium count in this recipe so high?

    I made this yesterday and it was amazing. I can’t get over the flavor – it was delicious, filling and healthy. Plus the cauliflower was a great ‘light’ substitute for rice.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I really don’t like cauliflower. Do you think if I substitute with broccoli it will be okay?

    For the calorie count, does this include the avocado or would they add more?
