Today’s recipe is Cauliflower Rice and Peas. It’s alarmingly easy to make. Just zap a head of cauliflower in the blender, tip into a pan with hot oil, garlic, peas and scallions, and toss/saute until cooked. That’s It!
Today’s recipe is a toasted coconut rice recipe. It’s an awesome side dish which works so nicely with spicy meat dishes and fish. I served this rice recently with a Thai-inspired stewed chicken, it was so good. My friend was visiting, a male “friend”, and he shared the meal with me. I thought he might balk at the idea of toasted coconut rice, but he loved it, so I took a bow, and now feel comfortable that you will love it too.

A simple side dish is all you need at times, and lemon garlic green beans is most certainly a simple side dish.
I’m a fan of mixing textures, so along with the lemon and garlic in these beans, I added some toasted almonds, totally makes this dish for me.
Purple cauliflower rice is a really cool side dish. It’s a smart alternative to regular rice. One cup of white rice has 5.6 times more carbs than the same amount of cauliflower rice. Cauliflower rice is packed with vitamin C too, and purple cauliflower rice is really pretty!
Replacing regular rice with cauliflower rice is a great idea, especially for those with chronic diseases such as diabetes.
It has a great bite, much lighter than conventional rice and doesn’t leave you conked out on the sofa veering to the food coma zone.
Three cheers for purple cauliflower rice!
