Whether pizza, mashed potatoes, fried rice or casseroles, it’s entirely possible to love low-carb recipes. Cauliflower takes on the flavor of whatever it is paired with, making it one of the most delicious substitutes for bread, pasta and potatoes. Also, it’s healthy and filling, so you won’t find yourself standing in front of the kitchen pantry at 10 pm.
- 1 medium head of cauliflower (or 1 bag of riced cauliflower)
- 1 tablespoon cream cheese
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- ½ teaspoon garlic, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ½ teaspoon fresh chives, chopped
- 3 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
Heat a pot of water over high heat.
Clean and chop cauliflower head or use pre-riced bag to save time. Boil for 6 minutes or until cauliflower is soft. Drain and use paper towels to pat the cauliflower dry. Make sure cauliflower does not cool down during this process.
Use food processor to puree your cauliflower. Add cream cheese, Parmesan, garlic, ghee and salt and pepper. Blend until the consistency is even. If you are following the keto diet, you want to make sure your dairy is high in fat.
Garnish with freshly chopped chives and serve!
