I have a delicious recipe for you. Clean Cauliflower Rice (and it’s variations) is a low carbohydrate alternative to rice and today I share both a raw and cooked version. This recipe may become one of your favorites, trust me it’s that amazing! Sometimes I eat this Cauliflower Rice plain and it’s perfectly satisfying and filling
You may be thinking “Emma, cauliflower is not rice”, and yes you are of course correct, but why not play around a little with the natural texture characteristics in cauliflower and use it to your advantage to make a dish a which is a little less calorie dense and far more nutrient dense!
The Standard British Diet contains way too many carbohydrates in the form of highly processed and refined food products. The recipes I’m sharing today are a way to have some fun in the kitchen playing with your vegetables, exploring new textures and recipes you’ve maybe never tried before. Also, it’s a great way to squeeze more vegetables into your diet and everything they have to offer (which is vast!).
Carbohydrates get a lot of negative press in the nutrition and fitness community and they really shouldn’t! I don’t know about you, but I love carbs and so do our bodies. The key is choosing them wisely, focusing on good quality, and proper timing of when you’re eating them. Before I digress to much ... back on rice. Rice comes in many varieties not just the most popular white, jasmine, basmati, brown and wild (which are the two most nutrient dense in my book). Let’s take a look how easy and versatile Simply Cauliflower Rice is to make, along with how to incorporate this recipe into your eats!
