This is a great way to use those vegetables that are looking a little sad, “Cauliflower Wild Rice” I came up with this recipe because one, I needed to use the vegetables I had left before I stock up on fresh produce and two, because I was craving a vegetable dish that also had a lot of flavor and textures. The result was magical! This “Cauliflower Wild Rice” was exactly what I wanted. It is low carb, packed with vegetables, flavor and a little crunch. I flavored this dish with thyme, lemon and some other spices, I added green onions for freshness, sliced almonds for crunch and finished everything with a squeeze of lemon juice. It was just delicious!
