Mahi Mahi Patty with Cauliflower Rice

I am not a big fan of frozen food.  However, when you are in a true bind, having some healthy frozen meal options is a good backup plan.   For those of you who are trying to get your veggies in while keeping your protein lean, this dish might really catch ya.  From Trader Joe’s in the frozen section, you can get the mahi mahi patties along with some cauliflower rice to go with it.  While one serving of cauliflower offers you 77% of the vitamin C you need in a day, it also floods your blood with vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese. Micronutrition is what makes your cells live and do their jobs.  Micronutrients are the sparkplugs in the body and you get them from your veggies, so I opt to be creative in how I get my veggies in each meal.  Not only was this cauliflower rice amazing, but I tossed in some spinach and broccoli with it to add anti-inflammatory properties and loads of additional micronutrients to the meal.

I find that seasoning your veggies with either spices or with a balsamic glaze can truly make it taste out of this world.  So instead of the same old boring salad, be creative and try a dish like this one to wake up your taste buds to good tasting food that appears to be right off a restaurant menu.

What to get:

  1. Cauliflower (either get a head or get a bag of frozen cauliflower rice): If you get a head, you will grate the cauliflower into rice yourself
  2. Mahi Mahi Patties
  3. Broccoli
  4. Spinach
  5. Balsamic Glaze
  6. Grapessed Oil

What to do:

First defrost or microwave your mahi mahi patty.  While you are doing that, dump in about a cup of cauliflower rice into a skillet that is lined with grapeseed oil.  Stir in a cup of broccoli and a fist of spinach.  Mix together and sprinkle in some balsamic glaze.  Mix it all together as it all cooks. Once the Mahi Mahi is defrosted or heated from the microwave, you can add that to the skillet to bring a browning effect to it. This meal only takes minutes to make.  Serve the mahi mahi over the bed of veggies and enjoy. Simply double or triple the portions for additional dinner guests.  Keep in mind that your veggie intake for this meal is all about high volume so be generous on your veggie portion.  Enjoy!
