Just in case you’re like me, moving away from the sweet flavors and the heavy carbs, turkey cauliflower fried rice is for you.
Before I get to that I want to thank you. Over 23,000 of you visited my recipe for Cheesecloth Wrapped Roast Turkey, and 3600 of you watched the video. That’s just amazing and I hope you enjoyed it.
The other night we made a typical Italian dish, rice with peas, except I used cauliflower and it was just as comforting.
Today, of course, I have lots of turkey left over and I still had some of that cauliflower rice.
Thus, paleo turkey cauliflower fried rice was born. I’m giving you the recipe just as if you would have to start from scratch. I don’t do paleo 100% of the time, but it’s where I turn in between parties, dinners, etc, and I have way to many things coming up this month. I’m not as strict as some as I do eat dairy, but I try hard to stick to grain free eating several days a week.
Cauliflower is great around the holiday times because it fills you up, yet is healthy, and a good food to help you stay fit throughout the holidays. A few months back, I went on a roll with cauliflower, making paleo, vegan mashed cauliflower, and cauliflower parmesan.Cauliflower today. Cookies tomorrow. You know how that goes.
This was a fun lunch, and just enough to give me fuel for navigating the mall. Yes I do get out there; it’s tradition to start our Christmas season, even though I’m one of those who does most of my shopping last minute.
