A bowl of grains and veggies can really hit the spot, especially if there are creamy toppings to go on it!
Nutty brown rice and flavorful roasted cauliflower pair nicely in this recipe, with a quick-whisked tahini dressing you’ll want to drizzle over everything.
Cut the cooking time in half by cooking the cauliflower in the air fryer instead of the oven!
Add sauteed greens for even more nutrients, or sub out the brown rice for millet or quinoa, and enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Gluten-free, oil-free, dairy-free, vegan, and delicious!
