Cauliflower & Broccoli Rice with chicken

I’ve touched on cauliflower rice before, this time I decided to do the same with my broccoli and mix together, it was vaguely a ratio of 1:3 more on the cauli side. Use what you have.

Blitzed the cauli I then microwaved it in a steamer with about  centimetre of water in the bottom for 1 minute on high. Time does depend on amount in your dish so check times for your microwave. I did the same for the broccoli. Let stand with lids on.

While the broccoli and cauli were waiting I microwaved up some  peas and corn from freezer. I chopped some capsicum up and tossed that to warm in with the peas and corn once cooked.

Make up a cream of chicken (or other) cup of soup only using 2/3 of the amount of water from box directions.

With leftover pulled apart bbq chicken from the night before,  I heated in microwave to take off the chill then added the cream of chicken soup, microwaved again until the chicken was to the temperature I liked.

As all the veg still had their lids on and were warm I tossed all the veg, broccoli and cauliflower together. Spoon veges into a bowl, serve chicken and soupy sauce beside or on top.

Can this be done stove top in pots and pans, yes though I’ve personally not cooked/heated cauliflower rice other than in the microwave.

Cauliflower rice can be bought already done but I prefer to do my own, it’s up to you. Can’t say I’ve ever seen the broccoli blitzed up for sale in the shops but can’t say I’ve really looked either.

A good way to get in those extra veg and pretty easy to make.

I love these little steamer microwave dishes.
