Directions

For tomato salsa, combine tomatoes, green onions and vinegar in bowl. Season, if desired, with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat 1 Tbsp/15 mL oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook cauliflower, stirring frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in water, milk, remaining oil and Knorr Selects™ White Cheddar Broccoli Rice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook covered, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender, about 10 minutes.

Stir chick peas into skillet. Serve topped with tomato salsa and sour cream.

*If you have leftover chick peas, save to sprinkle over a salad or roast for a healthy snack.

TIP: For meat lovers, cook 12 oz/350 g bite-size boneless skinless chicken breast chunks in an additional 1 Tbsp/15 mL. oil. Remove chicken and set aside. Continue with the recipe as above omitting chick peas and stirring in chicken. Sprinkle with 2 strips cooked crumbled bacon.

Good source of fiber, calcium and iron. Provides 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) vegetables per serving.
