Cauliflower rice – 4 easy recipes 

  
Hi everyone,

I have been slightly obsessed with cauliflower rice for 3 reasons. 

  • It’s super healthy as it will replace the carb on your plate. It goes really well with chicken and any kind of meat if you use the right spices.
  • It’s super fast and easy to make it after work or when you come back from the gym.
  • You no longer have to do it yourself in your food processor as Tesco sells 330g pots for £1 and they are usually on offer 3 for 2. 

    
For those of you who have not tried cauliflower rice before in any shape or form it’s more like cus cus but for some reason everyone calls it rice. It makes a perfect low calorie lunch or a side dish to accompany a nice piece of meat. You can also have it with fish or prawns. 

Cooking it is very easy. You basically roast it in a pan with a drizzle of oil and some spices, stirring occasionally. You can also roast it in the oven with some vegetables. From my own experience if you’re adding other vegetables to it like peppers or carrots. The smaller they are the better the overall result will be. 

As I have been experimenting with them a lot I have 4 really tasty recipes.
