Healthy and light Mediterranean cauliflower rice bowl with tzatziki!
I love the idea of a build your own rice bowl.
Start off with a good base, add some protein, veggies and flavors and you are set!
To switch it up, I like using cauliflower rice to keep it light.
You can use store-bought cauliflower rice or make your own!
Once you’ve made cauliflower rice you really won’t miss regular rice, especially in a dish like this.
Cauliflower is an extremely healthy vegetable that’s a significant source of nutrients.
This pretty vegetable is part of the cruciferous family which includes broccoli, brussels, kale, bok choy and cabbage.
Consuming cauliflower on a regular basis may help reduce inflammation and protect against several diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.
I get mild Italian chicken sausages from the meat counter. Look around and get what looks good to you.
Get whatever olives you like, I recommend buying them with the pit removed to make your life easier.
My favorite olives are Castelvetrano green olives. You can easily recognize them by their bright green color.
Peppadews are a gem I discovered from the Whole Foods olive bar. They are sweet yet slightly spicy.
If you can find them definitely give them a try.
To bring everything together, I like serving this bowl with tzatziki which is a cool yogurt and cucumber sauce.
You can use store-bought or homemade tzatziki.

Cook The Chicken Sausage
I love buying raw chicken sausages from the grocery store because they are already seasoned.
To a large skillet add 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and turn the heat to medium. Squeeze the meat out of the casings and add to the hot pan.
With your wooden spoon break up the meat into bite size pieces and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the meat is fully cooked through.
