The other day I shared a post about my Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice. Did you wonder what I made with it? Well my whole idea came from one of my favorite places to eat when we are out and about, Chipotle. My favorite thing to get there is the Vegetarian Burrito Bowl. First, they pack on the food!! You get so much that it’s really two meals (well, for me that is). And when it is all veggies, you have no guilt.
Until you start packing on the cheese and guac!
So I made my version of the Veggie Burrito Bowl, only this was truly a veggie bowl with the added cauliflower rice. To make it, it is so simple. It’s healthy and quick! Great for a weeknight meal or for a weekly lunch meal prep.

All you really have to do it cut up the onions and peppers, throw some salt, garlic powder, cumin and pepper on it, along with olive oils and throw it in the oven for about 20 minutes. I just kept an eye on them until the got to the point of how I like them, so you’ll definitely have to judge that for yourself, but around 2o minutes is a close proximate for how I like them.
While they’re in the oven, cook some black beans until they are warm and season how you like them. Again, I used salt, pepper, cumin and garlic powder. I would have added chili powder but I was out. Once everything is done and hot, you can assemble.
For us, I just had the cauliflower rice, black beans, peppers and onions and then added Pico De Gallo, sour cream and cheese.
Unfortunately my avocados weren’t ready.
And can you believe I almost forgot the cheese?
