There are things we food bloggers do in order to tell you things. The vague train’s pulling up to the station, all aboard!
I may show you something chocolaty to let you know I’ve been watching waaaaay too much Grey’s Anatomy. If you spy chocolate on this blog, it’s probably because I need a neuro consult, Dr. Shepherd.
The salad I show you immediately following said chocolate-filled treat is my way of telling you chocolate goes down reaaaaal nice and kale is excellent at rectifying high density Grey’s Anatomy-induced chocolate situations.
I may show you butter creamed with sugar (when have I done that ever? Bad example, Julia) in order to let you know I adore Darius Rucker but I love Hootie & the Blowfish WAY more. You see? That sentence doesn’t make a lick of sense, but now you know how I feel about the D.R. versus Hootie topic.
What’s that you say? You wish Hootie was still together, too? Get out of my mind.
And finally. . .
I may (as in most definitely will) show you a burrito bowl complete with cauliflower rice, ‘banzo beans, corn off the cob, pico de gallo and guacamole in order to tell you this is how I eat the majority of my meals. A conglomeration out of a bowl. It looks all neat and tidy sitting there on that table, but when your back is turned, I add 3 times the amount of guacamole and mix it all up like I’m trying to spin precipitate out of a centrifuge.
Check out this pico:
Do you see the kale? Good eye, mate, good eye. I made pico de gallo with kale for my cookbook, Let Them Eat Kale!, which you can pre-order now and devour (the pico, not the book), in a few months time. But for now, this recipe from Coupon Clipping Cook for pico de gallo will get you by.
Writing about burrito bowls is tough business when your belly’s stuffed with burrito bowl…and pumpkin bread. It’s like going to Costco when you’ve sworn off free samples. That’s actually not at all what it’s like, but you should never go to Costco when you’ve sworn off free samples. That’s pure masochism.
Ultimately, I showed you burrito bowl so that I could tell you cauliflower rice is a staple in my house. It actually takes less time to make than regular rice, and of course you get all the wonderful health benefits of cauliflower…since it’s made out of cauliflower. Entirely. Another version you can make is my Jalapeño Ginger Cauliflower Rice.
It is not recommended to eat a whole head of cauliflower (or whole skillet of cauliflower rice) if you have roommates; however, this is, indeed, in truth, indivisible with liberty and justice for all, how you eat an entire cauliflower in one sitting. I did it. I regretted it. But it hurt so good. Bygones.
