Special thanks to Jenny Craig for their sponsorship of this post.
In January, Jenny Craig released over TWENTY new menu items and it’s been a lot of fun trying each and every one of them. I’ve had some stand out favorites in the bunch – – Stuffed Green Bell Pepper, Three Cheese Tortellini with Chicken, and the BBQ Pulled Pork.
The Thai-Style Curry with Cauliflower Rice has also become an easy favorite. To me, it’s so reminiscent of takeout – – but healthier and made with cauliflower rice. When I’m looking to bump up the flavors in this dish, often times I’ll head to the salad bar to pick up a few colorful items to add to the dish.
#ProTip: Your grocery store salad bar really has everything you need to create a colorful dinner. As a bonus, it’s pre-chopped and you can simply buy the ingredients you’re looking for. I picked thorough the bell peppers to take the red and yellow ones to make it extra pretty today and to create this rainbow dish. The veggies I picked up from the salad bar cost me $1.00 – – Broccoli, peppers, scallions, and red onion!
This dish doubled in size with just a few veggie add-ins. I also added some hot sauce to the dish because I love it spicy. This citrus ginger sauce from Dave’s Gourmet is a fave, and a perfect compliment to this dish.
This same veggie base could easily be used with any of the Asian dishes – – the Cauliflower Fried Rice with Veggies and Chicken or the Beef Teriyaki
