Cheddar Cauliflower Rice is a quick side dish that tastes great and is perfect for a weeknight. With only 2.2 net carbs per serving, it is great for keto and low carb diets.
The weeknights are always the hardest. I mean, who has time to cook? I know I struggle with the What To Eat questions multiple nights a week. When you are trying to eat low carb, it can be hard to get a quick dinner on the table. One of my favorite things to eat is this Cheesy Cheddar Cauliflower Rice. It’s pretty much a side dish, but if no one is looking I could totally eat the whole thing. What I love about it is that it can be made in 10 minutes. I love that and the fact that the entire family likes it.
I buy bags of fresh riced cauliflower at Costco. I found some frozen riced cauliflower there last time which I bought, but haven’t tried yet. The fresh is easy to use, but it goes bad rather quickly. You’ll know when it goes bad because it gets slimy and your fridge stinks!
