This year one of our family goals is to eat a little healthier. We’ve made little changes in our eating habits over the years and once your family gets used to them it becomes the new normal. One of the easiest healthy eating swaps you can make is to switch out regular rice in any recipe you have for riced cauliflower. It honestly has such similar texture and taste to regular rice that it’s not a huge change for your tastebuds. I swap traditional white rice out with riced cauliflower in everything: casseroles, soups, skillet meals,…you name it.Riced Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Beef Burrito Bowls - a healthy version of your favorite burrito bowl! the-girl-who-ate-everything.com
We usually use Green Giant Riced Cauliflower for our burrito bowls but today we switched it up and used this Green Giant Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato blend for these Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowls. It’s made from 100 percent vegetables (no funky stuff here), and has up to 80 percent less calories than traditional white rice. I love the color and nutrients that the sweet potato adds here! Because I’m the mother to five kids, this isn’t my first rodeo when it comes to trying to find something that everyone will eat and not cry about. I’m not saying I withheld information BUT I did happen to wait until dinner was over to tell them that there wasn’t actually rice in their burrito bowls. Guess what? No one noticed a difference.

A little garlic too because I can’t help myself. Add some taco seasoning and salsa to give it that Mexican zing.

Pour in your Green Giant Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato blend with a little water and cook until the sweet potato is soft. Add some black beans and corn and heat until warm. Riced Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Beef Burrito Bowls - a healthy version of your favorite burrito bowl! the-girl-who-ate-everything.com
 Pour into bowls and let everyone top their own with shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, sour cream, avocado slices, tomatoes, salsa, or tortilla chips. Or if you’re me, a little bit of all of the toppings.

One of the reasons I love this meal is that you can make a big batch and have meals ready for the rest of the week for an easy lunch. With my family of seven that’s incredibly helpful to get meal prepping done at the beginning of the week so when things get hectic midweek with soccer practices, I’m all set. Riced Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Beef Burrito Bowls - a healthy version of your favorite burrito bowl! the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

  1. Christy this meal looks so tasty and so beautifully colored. I love food that is like a rainbow!!! This is going on my list for next weeks meal prep. Thank you for sharing it

  2. Now this is the kind of healthy eating I can handle! AKA, the kind that tricks me into thinking I’m not really being healthy at all by tasting so stinking delicious. 🙂

    This was delicious! I have to admit I doubted it would be but I really liked it. Thanks so much!!!

  4. I made this last night. It was so good. I couldn’t find the riced sweet potato and cauliflower mix, so I used riced cauliflower and added cooked sweet potatoes. My husband and four kids loved it. Today I had it as leftovers with a fried egg on top – huevos rancheros style. That was also great.
    I love your recipes. I’ve made too many to count. If my sometimes picky husband says he’s not sure if he’ll like something and I tell him it’s from your website and he says “Oh, it will be good then.”
