The Vegetable Escabeche & Rice is prepared with our Butter & Sea Salt Jasmine Rice Cups and pickled vegetables. The key ingredient that makes this dish stand out is the purple cauliflower (no, it isn’t dyed!) In fact, its signature color is thanks to an antioxidant called anthocyanin. Want to toss together a rainbow? Green and orange cauliflowers are quite common these days, due to an increasing interest in colorful variations.
As you can easily understand by its name, this dish is packed with vivid vegetables. Purple cauliflower, yellow squash, carrots and cilantro. In fact, vegetable rice is a great option when kids are at the table too: the chopped greens disguise themselves inside the dish allowing kids to eat them with no hesitation. Another option is taking this creation to the office for a quick meal on the go.
