With the cold weather here I have been craving a lot of hearty home cooking so I have been consciously looking for low carb easy to make meals that are filling and packed full of nutrients. A few weeks ago I decided to give cauliflower rice a try and it turned out amazing. It's light and fluffy and is surprisingly grain like and so easy to make. It's versatile, I have been playing around with different flavours and it's really easy to make up different side dishes. Cauliflower is great source of vitamin C, K, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids and it's known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
This recipe is a keeper and I'll definitely be putting it on our weekly meal rotation. Enjoy!
