There is no doubt that when you replace a non-vegetable ingredient with vegetables you make a wise move. Here, I am replacing broccoli and cauliflower rice for regular rice. For one thing, it cooks in no time and it will take the flavors that you decide to have.
I usually sauté it briefly with basting olive oil and add either my dry seasoning or Roasted Garlic and Herbs. You can eat it without anything else. That is how good it tastes. Try it.
