Vegan Cauliflower and Broccoli Stir Fry
Welcome back to the blog! Today we are sharing a super random recipe that we accidentally created by forgetting to turn the food processor off haha! I never thought of making cauliflower and broccoli into a bowl of mixed rice but it turned out great!
The entire meal is super simple to knock out because of the use of a food processor. You can also just slice and dice until your veggies resemble rice! Toss into a large pot with all of the added veggies and then cook until slightly brown. Drizzle the dressing all over and serve. Voila!
Vegan Cauliflower and Broccoli Stir Fry has so many benefits!
Benefits of Cauliflower and Broccoli
