Cauliflower has been around for ages, but recently its been celebrated and used widely in variety of cooking. This is due to LCHF and Paleo diet that encourages removal of proceeds/ high carbs and introduction of non processed naturally occurring food that is healing our body from a cellular level.
Also many people that are trying to get into this lifestyle are rice eaters and this gives a good alternative to rice!
However its more than just a low carb rice substitute , it’s a healthy vegetable a cup of boiled cauliflower contains only 28 calories( now I don’t believe in counting calories) but it also only contains 5gm of total carbs and a good amount of fibre.
That means we can still eat healthy and enjoy our curries and everything else that makes rice so yummy!
I have a quick recipe that I often use to make cauliflower rice
- One cauliflower- used to dice it myself- now just love that the already diced version is available, saves a lot of time and messy kitchen clean ups!
- Salt as required, pepper if needed
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Combine all these in a saute pan and saute for about 5 minutes and its ready to be enjoyed.
if I want more flavours then I do add onion and green chillies too! Try it out, great low carb substitute for rice
