This delicious plant-based power bowl is made with a hearty base of whole grain Carolina® Brown Rice topped with oven-roasted BBQ cauliflower and a homemade coleslaw!
Preheat oven to 425°F. Cook brown rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, toss together barbecue sauce, oil and cauliflower. Arrange in single layer on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender and golden brown.
Whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, honey, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper; toss with cabbage, celery and apple until well coated.
Divide rice among 6 bowls. Top with roasted cauliflower and coleslaw. Garnish with green onions.
Drizzle extra barbecue sauce over bowls if preferred.
This rice bowl is an entire meat-less meal using real vegetables and hearty grains that will keep you feeling full and satisfied.
And, as this recipe serves 6, it’s great for dividing up during the week to take as a lunch on the go or as a quick dinner or side! Simply prepare your ingredients ahead of time and separate until ready to enjoy. Make life easier by using overlapping ingredients like brown rice. Prepare a large batch and use for other plant-based meals like these Brown Rice and Black Bean Burritos.
Although this dish is naturally vegetarian, if you want to switch things up or load up on the power protein, simply toss in beans of choice, marinated tofu or cooked chicken with the BBQ cauliflower and drizzle over sauce as desired.
