Cauliflower Balls

Working every day and having to bring a lunch, because I can’t afford to eat out after traveling Europe for 4 months has been an interesting challenge. It’s has forced me to be creative about foods because I need a filling, yet portable lunch. I wanted to try making these Cauliflower Rolls, but they turned into something not like that… but the result was good enough to share anyway. It’s a great addition to a salad, because when you break it, it’s kind of the texture of quinoa.

My work lunch usually consists of either spinach or arugula, some kind of roasted veggie or these Cauliflower balls and a protein like chicken, hard boiled eggs or my favorite grass-fed beef hot dogs from Trader Joes. I also sometimes add a half and avocado after dressing my salad in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Voila! Rachel’s portable lunch featuring Cauliflower Balls.
