Perfect Date Night Meal!

Meals that come as a smorgasbord of ingredients in a bowl have to be the best meals in my honest opinion. I’m not one that is afraid to mix things together and I love to pack as many vegetables into a bowl as I can.

This recipe came about because leftovers in this house (whether from the fridge or freezer) are essential when you’re having a lazy day. Or a busy day for that matter. And who doesn’t love leftovers? Sometimes food is better the second time around. Right?

These Steak Fajita Bowls with Garlic Lime Cauliflower Rice are perfect for date night or if you’re having a get together with family or friends. The marinade for the steak packs a punch of flavor that helps to compliment not just the cauliflower rice, but the rest of the ingredients.

Indulge Without the Guilt

The fajitas are super simple to make and can be on your table in around 30 minutes (excluding the time it takes to marinade that is!). Tastes like take-out, but done at home and a bit on the healthier side.

Because indulgence should come without so much guilt!

I cooked the steak in my cast iron skillet, but you’re more than welcome to toss it on your outdoor grill or into a large nonstick pan. I’m not one to stand outside in the winter to grill up a piece of meat. If you’re one to tough it out and do so – I applaud you. But I prefer not to.

Ingredients

Garlic Lime Cauliflower Rice

  • 1 large head of cauliflower approximately 1 pound
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic 2-3 cloves
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tbsp Lime juice 1-2 limes
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro (optional)

To Have Prepared:

For the Steak Fajita Bowls:

  • 2 cups arugula
  • 2 cups corn frozen or canned
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes halved

Garnishment: (optional and not calculated into nutrition information)

  • freshly chopped cilantro
  • plain greek yogurt or sour cream
  • Sliced jalapeno
  • Limes to squeeze overtop bowl
  • Salsa any kind

Cilantro Lime Avocado Mash: (optional and not included in nutrition information)

  • 2 medium avocados peeled and pitted
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes more or less to taste
  • 1 tbsp Lime juice or juice of 1/2 lime - more or less to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt to taste
  • Pinch of pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp freshly chopped cilantro to taste

Instructions

For the Garlic Lime Cauliflower Rice:

  1. Remove stem and leaves from head of cauliflower. Cut into small florets.
  2. Place florets into a food processor (or blender) and pulse until the cauliflower reaches a rice-like consistency. Be sure to keep an eye on it while it is processing. You don't want to over-process it.
  3. Place a large, nonstick pan with olive oil over medium heat.
  4. Once heated, add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Approximately 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the cauliflower and seasonings to the pan: onion powder, salt and pepper (as listed or to taste). Stir to combine.
  6. Allow to cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the lime juice and continue stirring to combine.
  7. Remove from heat and add the cilantro. Serve immediately.

Prep Remaining Bowl Contents:

  1. The steak and sautéed veggies will take a little time to cook, so once you've got that going, start cutting and processing the cauliflower florets to soon cook.
  2. You can warm the corn in the microwave or in the same pan with the veggies. I tossed it into the cast iron skillet after I sautéed the peppers and onion.

Assemble Bowl:

  1. Arrange the cauliflower rice, arugula, cooked corn, steak and veggies into a bowl and add whatever toppings you would like; salsa, pico de gallo, plain greek yogurt, Cilantro Lime Avocado Mash, jalapeños, or whatever your taste buds love most!
