We’ve made this recipe as a side dish and we also will top it with a protein (ex, scallops taste amazing with this as a base). This is a simple and quite tasty side dish, base for a main dish, or even as a warm lunch salad. I make bacon ahead of time and I also buy bags of organic cauliflower rice from Costco so this is actually quite easy. I make a big batch of bacon several times per week so I almost always have it on hand!

2 green zucchini, diced
2 cups cauliflower rice

Melt avocado oil or coconut oil over medium heat. Add all ingredients! See - easy, right?
While this is sauteing, chop bacon and cook on the stove. OR use the perfect bacon recipe and chop after it is cooked. I almost always bake my bacon but this time I chopped it and cooked it on the stove. If you bake it, make sure to start it earlier since it will take a bit longer.
Saute veggies for about 10 minutes. Mix bacon into pan and saute for about 5 minutes more for the flavors to blend.
