 Add  in pine nuts, fresh basil, and taste of lemon.  (I know I’m making you hungry.) The result is a wholesome plant based side with a garden fresh taste made in under 30 minutes!    On the day I prepared this, I served it  warm along with grilled kebabs (chicken and tempeh).  The following  day I served it cold (picnic style) with an accompanying sandwich.  Roasted Cauliflower Rice with Sweet Peas is a satisfying side that helps fill you up with a generous amount of fiber (6 grams to be exact). It also packs in  a healthy dose of vitamin C  (60% the daily value based on a 2000 calorie diet).
