"The first wealth is health" Ralph Waldo Emerson
Comfort food for me means: vleis, rys en aartapples (meat, rice and potatoes), but since Antonie and I are trying to eat less refined carbs, and less carbs in general, we have needed to start being more creative with our meals. Last week we ate baby marrow spaghetti, which we used as spaghetti in a chicken stir-fry (yum). And Monday night we tried out cauliflower rice. It's very easy to make, and tricks you- by making you think that there is actually rice on your plate. I think the below is the most simple way to make it - I will definitely try a few variations of this in the future (for example, use it in a stir-fry, make fried rice, add peas/sweetcorn to it...).
Simple Cauliflower Rice
1) Grate cauliflower in a microwavable dish
2) Microwave it for 3 minutes
3) Season it as desired (we used salt, pepper and paprika with a dollop of greek yogurt)
