I’m excited to share with you my version of the recipe called Cauliflower “Rice”.
This recipe is so quick to make that it became one of my staples!
I wanted to highlight the benefits of this recipe:
It is 100% grain-free and gluten-free!
It’s made with fresh vegetables and herbs – it means that your body will get lots of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals!
It is low in fat and calories and has no added oil – it means it is perfect for those who watches the calories or tries to lose weight. (You can certainly add some olive, avocado or sesame oil to it if you like; however, I encourage you to try it first and see how it tastes to you.)
It has no additives or sweeteners; however, it tastes slightly sweet and pleasantly delicious because of the natural carbohydrates present in carrots and cauliflower.
This recipe is 100% raw and uncooked; however, you can steam or cook the cauliflower (and even carrots) if this is your preference.
You will need the following ingredients:
cauliflower, carrots, onion, scallion, avocado, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and optional Himalayan salt.
You will need this equipment:
a cutting board, a knife, a food processor (I used a Cuisinart), and a mixing bowl
