This one pan meal can be made into a satisfying breakfast or quick weekday lunch. It comes together with a flavorful and clean chicken sausage, bright vegetables, cauliflower rice and some spices. Top it off with a sprinkle of fresh herbs and you have yourself a yummy meal ready in 30 minutes.  


  • 2 tbsp Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil, divided

  • 1 large Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • 1 medium Yellow Squash, diced

  • 1 12 oz bag Organics Fresh Cauliflower Rice

  1. Sausage and veggies: Prepare the sausage and veggies; set aside.
  2. Cook: To a large sauté pan, add the oil and heat on medium heat. Cook the sausage for 4-5 minutes a side. Remove to a plate.
  3. Veggies: Add the vegetables with a bit of salt and cook for 5 minutes, adding the garlic the last minute.
  4. Rice: Toss in the cauliflower rice, and a bit more salt and cook for about 3-5 mins; stirring occasionally. (Don’t overcook the rice or it will get mushy).
  5. Put it together: Add the sausage and the remaining seasonings and stir to combine.
  6. Optional: Add a sprinkle of fresh herbs on top and enjoy immediately.
  7. Option #2: You can serve a fried or scrambled egg on top, with a dash of hot sauce, for a great breakfast.


  • If possible, use all organic ingredients.
  • Cauliflower Rice: I use fresh rice as much as possible, but frozen will work here as well. If you do use fresh, it will require less cook time. So just be sure to not overcook it or it will get mushy.
  • Substitutions: If you don’t want to use cauliflower rice, you can substitute quinoa or brown rice instead.
