Asian Riced Cauliflower

Asian flavors pack a lot of punch. I love the use of mushrooms to create umami. To me, it is an under-utilized taste that satisfies with smaller portions. That’s why I was so excited when Sam ordered fresh shiitakes from a local farm this week. We’ve been enjoying the bounty of summer with sugar snap peas and cauliflower from the Columbus Farmer’s Market that I decided to combine with the shiitakes.

Before eating keto, I would have made fried rice. However, Asian Riced Cauliflower (or cauliflower rice) is actually an improvement. The umami of the shiitakes and liquid aminos shine through to star in this dish. I add sugar snap peas for a little sweetness. My recipe is gluten free, sugar free, and low carb.

When you’re craving a side dish with depth, serve this Asian Riced Cauliflower. Pair it with roasted salmon, teriyaki chicken, or fried pork loin. Enjoy the nutty taste for a change of pace. Expanding your healthy recipe repertoire? That’s a Low Carb Revolution.
