2 tbsp of water
2 tbsp of Best Choice sugar
Add sugar and frozen berries in a small skillet on medium heat and bring to a boil. Add water and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Meanwhile, prepare your waffles. When your compete is ready to eat fruit will have a glazed look. Serve compote over your waffles.
1 cup Best Choice rice or 2 frozen Best Choice cauliflower rice bags
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 bag of Best Choice frozen broccoli
1 bag of Best Choice frozen cauliflower
Best Choice extra-virgin olive oil
8 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (about 2 1/2 cups)
4 Best Choice eggs
Hot sauce, for serving (optional)
1/2 cup Best Choice Parmesan shredded cheese (optional) for serving
Prepare rice by following the instructions on packaging.
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Break up the broccoli and cauliflower into a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, remove and drizzle with the olive oil, and stir to combine. Return to the oven and roast until the vegetables get brown and crispy at the edges, another 10-20 minutes, stirring halfway through the cook time.
Meanwhile, melt the remaining tablespoon olive in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring only 2 or 3 times, until the mushrooms are deeply browned, about 10 minutes
Also meanwhile, prepare your egg by frying it in the same skillet with a little more olive oil.
Divide the rice among four bowls. Top with an equal amount of the broccoli, cauliflower, and mushrooms. Place an egg on each serving. Serve immediately with hot sauce and cheese.
