Spicy cauliflower fried rice w/ ginger and lime

Posted by Sumeera Rasul on

Cauliflower rice (cauli-rice) is a healthy alternative to regular rice. While we love regular white rice, this recipe is a delicious way to sneak in more cruciferous vegetables in your diet. 

This is an easy recipe for meal prep. 

Some of the benefits of this dish include: 

Cauliflower: high in vitamin C, fiber, B-vitamins, antioxidants and other micronutrients including sulforaphane (fights cancer, diabetes and blood-pressure)

Ginger: anti-inflammatory, lowers blood sugars, reduces menstrual pain and great for digestion

Garlic: antiviral and antibacterial, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.
