Looking for a great side dish to bring to Thanksgiving this year? Seek no further! This Mushroom & Cauliflower Rice Pilaf is loaded with savory flavor and gentle on the blood sugar too. It's also a clever way to sneak in more veggies! 

Beyond the holiday season, this dish is delicious served alongside your favorite protein, like salmon, chicken, tofu, or high quality whole food veggie burger. Two of my favorites are NoBull Burgers and Actual Veggies Burgers.

This is one recipe you'll want to double for leftovers!
