A super light and refreshing meal for summer, this arugula nut free pesto cauliflower rice bowl is delicious and easy to make.
Fun fact: I used to hate cauliflower rice. Basically, cauliflower anything! Now, I love it!
What I’ve learned when it comes to cooking cauliflower rice is that it really needs some flavor. I recently got a few requests to do a cauliflower rice recipe, and as I was brainstorming, the word “pesto” popped into my mind.
Now if you have been following me for awhile, you probably may know I am allergic to nuts. So this pesto is not only Vegan (duh), but nut free. Even better, it’s a mix of arugula and basil. Such a good combination!
Instead of just giving you a cauliflower rice pesto recipe, I wanted to complete it and turn this into a *bowl* recipe. My lack of tempeh recipes is astounding, so I decided to creep in a little balsamic tempeh into this recipe. This added some additional italian flavors!
Also, sautéed mushrooms. Mushrooms are SO yummy! Don’t like mushrooms? Sub another veggie! Totally up to you.
This recipe packs a lot of flavor, but also is super light! You won’t be left feeling incredibly full or put in a bad “food coma” after eating this.
It’s the perfect summer recipe, and I know you will love it!
I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you ever make any of my recipes, don’t forget to “tag” me on Instagram so I can see!
