Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 16 ounces white mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 2 scallions chopped (green parts)

Sauce:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 can (or to taste) chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450F. Move the rack to the middle.
  • Add the Greek yogurt, chilis in adobo sauce, lime juice, garlic, and salt to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour dressing into a jar and set aside until needed.
  • Cut the broccoli into bite-size florets. Cut the mushrooms into halves or quarters, depending on size of mushrooms. Add the broccoli and mushrooms to a baking sheet and toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the garlic powder, and salt & pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut the cauliflower into bite-size florets. Add the cauliflower to a food processor (you may need to do more than one batch), and process on low speed until the cauliflower resembles rice or couscous.
  • Add the cauliflower rice to a skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil and some salt to taste. Cook for 10 minutes (or until it's as tender as you like) on medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally.
  • Slice the avocado and scallions. Assemble the bowls and serve immediately.

Notes

  • Cauliflower rice can keep in the fridge (either cooked or uncooked) for a few days if you don't need to make all four bowls at once.
  • The spiciness of the chipotle peppers can vary. If you're sensitive when it comes to spice, I'd definitely start with less than 1/2 the can of peppers and then taste and add more as needed.
