I was experimenting a little bit with being grain-free just to see how I felt and saw various recipes for cauliflower rice on Paleo websites. It is one of my new favorite things of 2013- although just to be fair I don’t have many new things in 2013 yet. But still.

Are any of you grain-free? It is an adjustment but I do notice a difference in how I feel. I have been wheat free (again) for the last few weeks and mostly grain free but not totally. As someone who loves to bake, that poses a bit of a problem- until Almond Flour came into my life. I was a little obsessed with almond flour this holiday season and cooked probably a dozen things from this cookbook- almond flour pizza crust, almond flour quiche, almond flour biscotti (dynamite!), almond flour pancakes…it’s good stuff and a great alternative to wheat flours and less healthy gluten free flours.
Anyway, now I have an alternative rice to add to the mix. This is a quick and easy side dish – takes 15 minutes tops- and you can add whatever flavors you like. Read the rest of this entry
