Need to reign in your carb intake? This cauliflower rice recipe is perfect for you! 

Snow has melted and spring is here. We all know what comes next; that’s right, Bikini season! If you are watching your calories but still need that carb fix, here is a recipe that you will absolutely adore: our cauliflower rice recipe!  Faux carbs are fast becoming this year’s hot trend and cauliflower rice is the perfect introduction to grain alternatives.

All you need is a grater or food processor to knock up rice-like pieces, which can then be microwaved in a flash, pan-fried in moments or roasted to create a light, fluffy portion that will have the most ardent carb monsters asking for seconds.

You can experiment with flavours and veggies that you like but here is one recipe which I love! Enjoy.
