Okra & Tomatoes “Southern Rice” Side Dish – HFLC / 2B Mindset / Fix Approved

Do you sometimes crave that southern food flavors from when you were a kid? But you dont necessarily crave the bloat or gut upset from the white rices and flour filled gravies?
.
Last night was one of those nights for me. My husband mentioned cooking up some extra okra and tomatoes and immediately I started salivating.
.
I knew I needed some extra veggies to make my meal plan complete for the day, and that I still had a major appetite (my hunger increases when I lift weights). So, I reached for cauliflower rice and cooked it down in evoo, cayenne, salt, garlic powder. Smothered it with the tomatoes and okra and y’all!

Such a better solution than battered and fried okra, and 3x the amount of veggies while fooling my tongue with amazing flavor so I don’t feel like I am missing out!!
.
This is an absolute MUST TRY if you’re like me and have those southern cravings once in awhile but wanna keep it on the healthier side of life!
.
Tell me… would you try it? Did your mama or grandma cook okra when you were little? Have you ever ‘healthified’ a southern dish? I would love to hear about it!
