Last night we made Chinese and Thai food at home since there are no good delivery options near us. Its actually really frustrating b/c when we lived in NY there were a million amazing Thai restaurants nearby and at least a handful of decent Chinese. Ah well! I can complain about lack of amazing food options in D.C. in every post I make.
In an effort to be healthier, I used cauliflower instead of rice. How versatile is this vegetable? Its basically amazing as a pizza crust, as a substitute for rice, and as a vegan “steak” option. I am so in love. And its so easy to use (except of course the cleaning up part – the joy of having little cauliflower pieces everywhere in my kitchen is no fun).
For our lunchtime salads these days I usually make a Honey-Ginger Dressing so I modified that a bit and used it for the sauce on the rice. It was the right balance of flavors for a rice dish, I would have to say! You can chow down on this all by your lonesome but we paired the it with a Tofu and Broccoli in Peanut Sauce that I made which turned out pretty decent as well. I may post that recipe soon too.
We definitely didn’t miss the rice!
