Cauliflower Rice Salad

Nutrients Packed in one Bowl


If you ever wondered how to spruce up your cauliflower or tired of your usual way of making it, this is the recipe for you, it’s packed with nutrients, it’s filling and its gluten free. Did I mention that this is perfect side dish as well? This is also a nice menu change during lockdown, and I hope you will enjoy it as I do.

2 Cups Kale, chopped
