Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower is a typical staple of the keto diet, as it contains only a small per cent of carbs and is neutral in flavour, making it extremely versatile. This cauliflower rice dish is a great accompaniment to fish dishes, stews and meat dishes, easily replacing rice, couscous and pasta!
Cauliflower rice is a versatile side dish that really doesn't require any extra flavours beyond basic seasoning. But if you feel like spicing things up a bit, try experimenting with paprika, coriander or toasted cumin seeds!
