Spicy Mexican Cauliflower Rice

This is a classic dish in Mexico, but of course don’t call it Mexican rice in Mexico. They don’t call it Spanish rice either, it’s just “rice” or “red rice” thanks to its rather recognizable color. Cauliflower is an amazing vegetable because of its versatility. You can use it any number of ways and there…

Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce with Zucchini Noodles

There’s something about alfredo sauce that just makes you want to have another bite. That creaminess and buttery flavor definitely has something to do with it.

The rich, smooth sauce provides its own savory deliciousness to the dish, acting as…

Low Carb Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh is a dish that I had not heard of until I moved to the east coast a few years ago. The Middle Eastern salad is traditionally made with bulgur wheat instead of riced cauliflower. But the real star of the recipe is parsley. If you ever have a surplus of flat-leaf parsley, this is…

7 Comforting Mashed Cauliflower Recipes

How to Make Curried Paleo Cauliflower Soup

Cauliflower soup is very simple and affordable. I didn’t intentionally start eating a mostly vegetarian diet, but it has turned out to be so.
