This vegetarian power bowl is made with whole grain Mahatma® Brown Rice, or Jasmine Brown Rice, topped with oven-roasted cauliflower coated in barbecue sauce and a creamy homemade honey-mustard coleslaw.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Cook rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, toss together cauliflower, barbecue sauce and oil. Arrange in a single layer on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and tender.
Whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, honey, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper; toss with cabbage, celery and apple until well coated.
Divide rice among 6 bowls. Top with roasted cauliflower and coleslaw. Garnish with green onions.
Drizzle extra barbecue sauce over bowls if preferred.
