One of my all time favorite side dishes is mashed cauliflower. I actually prefer it to mashed potatoes (imagine that!) Many of you may have seen our recipe for Garlic and Herb Mashed Cauliflower, which is a really tasty recipe, however more often than not we make a basic mashed cauliflower because it is time efficient, and unbelievably delicious. I’m really big on textures. I will often keep eating something because of the texture, or even…
…begging us to post this recipe since we started the Blog.) So sorry Aunt Justi, it’s finally here! This cauliflower “rice” is extremely simple to make and tastes absolutely amazing. We call it “rice”, but the consistency is a little more like couscous, you would never guess that it is actually cauliflower. This side dish is fantastic with shrimp, chicken, pork, beef, tuna, white fish, or with other sauteed veg…
…and my aunt a taste of our asparagus soup, so that was on the menu for the evening, and I decided to give mashed cauliflower one more chance in hopes that I would succeed with the Blendtec. I have tried to make cauliflower puree many times and failed miserably. I tried using a food processor, and a hand mixer, neither came out successfully for me. However, I had high hopes for success with the Blendtec. The simple mashed cauliflower turned out be…
We recently had the opportunity to try some of Tropical Traditions Green Label Virgin coconut oil. We have loved every product that we have tried from Tropical Traditions, so we were really eager to try out their coconut oil. Coconut oil is our staple cooking fat in our home.

Creamy Chicken, Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake
This is such a flavorful recipe, it's unbelievably easy to get on the table, will please anyone - even those who have trouble eating broccoli! - and you'll probably have most of the ingredients in your refrigerator already! It's dairy-free, however if you can have a little bit of cheese I suggest sprinkling the top of the casserole with parmesan for the last 15 minutes of cooking time.
This recipe is a great meal by itself, but it also pairs well with some cauliflower rice to absorb the sauce.
Fried Cauliflower Rice with Pineapple, Shrimp, and Pork
This is a veggie-heavy meal with an Asian flair. If you struggle with getting enough vegetables into your diet, cauliflower rice is one wonderful way of getting more. It has the look and feel of real rice, is as filling as real rice, and yet it is filled with nutrients whereas real rice is not. Skip the pork if in a bit of a rush for a beautiful yet quick weeknight dinner ( I would recommend adding some red pepper flakes to the dish if you skip the pork and still want a bit of a kick).
Fluffy Lemon Cauliflower Rice
A refreshing twist on cauliflower rice, this version offers a zesty lemon flavor and healthy dose of fats.
This easy roasted cauliflower is for people like me who are sometimes just too lazy to cut it into florets.
Cauliflower Hash Browns
If you thought you'd never have another hash brown with your healthy paleo lifestyle, think again! These hash browns are made with cauliflower and are so close to the texture and taste of potato hash browns you won't know the difference! They require very little ingredients and are low carb.
