Low Carb Lemon Cauli "Rice"
Lemon Flavored "Rice"
Lemon rice is widely prepared in South India. This dish can be eaten hot or cold and hence is ideal for any situation. Traditionally, this item is prepared with rice, oil, spices and of course lemon juice. In order to be more mindful of our eating, we have reduced the oil used significantly and replaced rice with riced cauliflower. On a blind taste test at the MC headquarters, several people could not distinguish the original Vs the low carb mindful version. Do try this recipe and let us know what you think.
