Easy Spanish Rice
This Easy Spanish Rice is not only delicious but loaded with secret veggies. By using cauliflower rice this recipe gives you two bangs for one recipe, 1. secret veggies and 2. volume! Your family will never know this is half cauliflower rice and half basmati, promise. The flavors mix together so well while still being subtle and easily paired as a side with so many dishes.
Your family will never know this Easy Spanish Rice is packed with veggies.
I get asked all the time for my favorite side recipes. This Easy Spanish Rice is going to be the perfect meal plan rotation addition for you! Serve this with my Taco Tuesday Flank Steak, with or in tacos and burritos, with enchiladas or fajitas or even inside breakfast burritos! There are so many ways you can serve this rice.
I love this rice for meal prep specifically because the flavor gets better as it sits. Be sure to top with fresh cilantro, extra fresh lime juice and if you want it spicy add your favorite hot sauce.
Before you ask, I already know where you’re going and don’t you worry, I will have those Skinny Jalapeno Margaritas up soon for you.
