Thai Cauliflower Rice & Veggies ~ Meatless Monday

Happy Meatless Monday!  I can’t believe we’re into March already.  I know the east has been ravaged my snow and cold weather, but out here in western Canada it has been gorgeous (sorry, don’t hate).  It already feels like spring out here and I’m really looking forward to an early summer 🙂

OK onto today’s recipe!  This dish is gluten-free, dairy-free, full of colourful veggies and can easily be made vegan.  It’s relatively quick to put together; it just requires a big of veggie prep.  You can even make the sauce the night before to save time.  Try it out for your next Meatless Monday…Thai Cauliflower Rice & Veggies ~ ~ #meatlessmonday #vegetarian #dairyfree #glutenfree

    I still think it’s ridiculously NUTS that I have yet to make cauliflower rice! Common GiGi, you have a damn food processor, get with the friggin’ program!
