Sesame broccoli with cauliflower rice

Eating your veggies will never be easier than with this vibrant, wholesome Asian-inspired meal.

  • Yield: Serves 3-4
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 20 minutes

This fully vegged-out Asian-inspired dish is free of gluten and grain, but rest assured it's still big on flavor. It uses cauliflower rice and a light, gluten-free teriyaki sauce (find it in the gluten-free section of your grocery store) and is topped off with just a pinch of zesty chili flakes., which can be easily omitted if you're not a fan of heat.


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free teriyaki sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • Pinch red chili flakes


Wash and dry the cauliflower, trimming off the florets. Shred the cauliflower florets in a food processor or with a grater, by hand.

Warm the sesame oil in a large saute pan, add in the cauliflower and cook it over a medium-high heat until tender. Don't let it get soggy. Set aside.

In another saute pan, add in the teriyaki sauce and chili flakes. Warm over a medium-high heat, then add in the broccoli, cooking until just tender.

Plate the broccoli over the cauliflower rice and top with sesame seeds.
