I lightened up fried rice and gave it a Mexican spin in this yummy rendition. Add the optional beans for just 60 calories and an extra 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 servings (¾ cup each)
  • ½ yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 to 2 ripe tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed, optional
  • 4 cups of cauliflower rice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Cilantro to taste

Liberally coat a skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft and slightly browned, about 8 minutes. Add tomato and optional black beans, if using, and sauté for another minute or so.

Add cauliflower rice, salt, cumin, garlic, paprika and ground black pepper. Mix thoroughly and sauté for about 3 to 5 minutes or until “rice” is your preferred consistency.

Cilantro lovers: Add a 1 to 2 tablespoons of minced cilantro to your portion and enjoy.
