Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice and Roasted Brussels Sprouts Salad [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


  • 1 cauliflower head, riced
  • 1/2 cup olives, stones removed
  • 6 ounces Brussels sprouts, peeled
  • 3/4 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 14 ounces marinara sauce
  • 1 cup white beans, from a can, drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put the cleaned Brussels sprouts on it. Season with a little salt and pepper before you give them into the oven to roast for around 15 minutes at 400°F.
  2. While the sprouts are roasting, you can use the time to prepare the cauliflower rice. Chop your cauliflower into florets, add to a food processor, and pulse into a rice-like texture.
  3. Combine marinara, cauliflower rice, Brussels sprouts, and all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Eat straight from the bowl or divide into small plates.
