Most people are familiar with the lower starch alternative to rice, called cauliflower rice, which is a nice way to add more vegetables to your plate. But I also love broccolini, zucchini, broccoli and carrot as a food switch up for rice that can change the color, taste and nutrient profile of your dish. In this veggie bowl, you can add tofu, tempeh, nuts, seeds, legumes or a fried egg to boost the protein profile.
Pine nuts – Cashews, blanched almonds, macadamias
Broccolini – broccoli, zucchini
Cauliflower – zucchini
Scallions – onion
