This burrito bowl is ZERO Freestyle points!
The star of this burrito bowl is the cauliflower rice. Never in my life did I think I would say that, but it’s true!

I used frozen cauliflower rice, straight from the freezer. To make it taste delicious I sautéed some fresh minced garlic then added the cauliflower rice. It added so much great flavor to the cauliflower.
I used to buy the minced garlic in the jar, but I made the switch to only using fresh garlic. It has been a huge gamechanger!
I was intimidated by the thought of using fresh garlic, but now I’m obsessed with it. It’s so easy to work with!
I bought a garlic press that I love. What makes it extra fabulous is you don’t have to peel the garlic. This is the one I use:ZYLISS Susi 3 Garlic Press “No Need To Peel” – Built in Cleaner – Crusher, Mincer and Peeler, Cast Aluminum
To sauté the garlic I used Pam Superior Oil Spray. I like it because it is pure olive oil. You can use up to 8 sprays for 0 points.
I heated my pan on low/medium, then used about four sprays of the oil. Next I added the minced garlic. You want to make sure the pan is not too hot. Burned garlic is not good!
I added the riced cauliflower and let it cook for 5 minutes. I squeezed 1/2 of a lime into it and added some salt and cilantro. It was so good!!!
I used cumin, garlic powder and salt to season the chicken breast. I cooked that for four minutes on each side.
Once my chicken was done cooking I added the red pepper to the pan and cooked it for 3 minutes. I like my peppers to still be crispy. I cooked it in the same pan as my chicken so that it got some of the flavor from the seasoned chicken.
I also added some red onion and black beans to my burrito bowl. I used all zero point ingredients!
I served it with a side of fat free salsa. It was a delicious zero point meal!
