Snack Swap: Switch Your Rice And Grains For Paleo Friendly Cauliflower Rice
When you’re busy working, but want to keep yourself on the healthy straight and narrow, it can be hard coming up with simple swaps that can make a big difference.
Whether you’re trying to go gluten free, looking for a paleo alternative, or just want to go the extra mile with your fitness routine, we’ll be bringing you a simple snack swap each week.
This week… why not ditch rice for a veggie based alternative? Whether you want to cut down on your rice or grain intake, or need to up your five-a-day count, ‘caulirice’ or cauliflower rice is a great way to bulk up a meal without the added calories.
Make it in a batch for a family meal, or change things up with broccoli florets to use up the end of the vegetables in your fridge!
- 1 medium head of cauliflower
- Add cauliflower florets to a food processor and pulse to create ‘caulirice’. The appearance should look fine like rice. Pulse on a slow speed to avoid cutting the vegetables down too fine.
- Blanch quickly in boiling water, or roast in the oven at 180C.
- Serve with a slow-cooked curry, or chilli con carne for a grain-free alternative to carbohydrates!
Have a spare head of broccoli in the fridge? Break down into florets alongside the cauliflower florets to add a colourful, flavoursome treat to your plate!
