by | Feb 20, 2016

Are you looking for a low-carb and gut friendly alternative to grains like rice, quinoa and couscous? Look no further than Cauliflower “Rice”! This nutrient-dense vegetable is a perfect substitute for grains and will leave you feeling satisfied.  It’s extremely versatile and can be used as a base or side for so many dishes.

A few great ways to add Cauliflower “Rice” to your menu …

1. Use it as a side to a salmon fillet, juicy steak, chicken breast or another protein source.

2. Use it as a base for stir fries or curry dishes.

3. Top it with some soul-warming chili.

4. Eat it on its own as a mid-day snack or mix in canned tuna and call it lunch. It tastes great cold too, so no need to warm it up.
