Cauliflower Rice and Broccoli Bites

30 minutes

It’s all about the texture with these fiber-rich bites. With cauliflower and broccoli as the base, your kids will be getting tons of immune-supportive vitamins and antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C, E, and prebiotic fiber. They will also enjoy veggies in a new way — packed with flavor and variety that’s a fun side or travel snack.
