Step-by-step Work From Home Lunch Recipe

This easy recipe is perfect for a quick meal, work from home lunch, or kid friendly meal everyone will love.

First, start to cook chicken sausage per directions on package. You can keep the links intact, or you can slice links at an angle into pieces.

Second, set your stove top to low-medium heat, and then add a glug of olive oil to the pan. Add cauliflower rice and coat the cauliflower rice with the olive oil.

Third, start to cook the frozen cauliflower rice, as a result, the excess water from the cauliflower rice will release. Cook rice until all water is completely released.

As you are completing the last step, the cauliflower rice is lightly frying at this point. I like to cook the cauliflower rice until the rice looks a little crispy.

The last and final step is salt and pepper the cauliflower rice to taste, with fresh sliced cucumber on the side, and you are done!
