Jump to Recipe
This gluten-free Southwest Rice Bowl recipe is one of my go-to’s for busy nights. I always keep cauliflower rice and BurgerFit burgers in my freezer and canned black beans in my pantry. That way, I can quickly throw a healthy dinner together in minutes! I’ll also add greens, cooked veggies, and fresh cilantro if I have any. This is one of Fletcher’s favorite meals – he is always asking me for rice and beans. He has no idea that he is actually eating cauliflower instead of rice and veggies in his burgers!

Why eat the Gluten-Free Southwest Rice Bowl?

The Southwest Rice Bowl is your go-to dish for sneaking in extra veggies. You can use cauliflower instead of rice, add peppers, onions, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, or anything else you have. Once you have the extra toppings on there like cheese, sour cream, salsa and/or hot sauce, picky eaters won’t be able to tell the difference!
