Cauliflower “Rice” is a great low carb side dish alternative to rice.
The main reason I started trying out the cauliflower rice was to have a low carb alternative to rice for dinner. This idea started because I visited a nutritionist and she gave me a few tips to guide me in my fat loss journey. Being a Panamanian makes it hard not to eat rice in general. We do love our rice! A typical Panamanian food plate would have a bunch of white rice, any protein on the side, beans, and a fried plantain.
Since I’m trying to incorporate more veggies into my diet, I said let’s give it a try. Lucky for me it worked out perfectly. For lunch, I usually had my rice portion, but I added some of the cauliflower “rice” to make it seem more rice volume. For dinner, I only had a couple of portions of cauliflower rice and my protein of choice.
