We have taken plain cauliflower rice and created a lovely, fragrant, pilau rice recipe.
Rice is a main stay of any Indian meal, which obviously leaves those following a grain free food plan, such as a paleo diet, missing out on some really tasty dishes.
As you can see from the picture of our delicious Indian Banquet, the pilau rice was centre stage of our meal.
It's super easy to make, but if you don't have an extensive herb and spice collection you may need to stock up on some ingredients, which we guarantee you won't regret buying!
From the Cruciferous vegetable family, cauliflowers are incredibly good for us being packed with vitamin C and other goodies; plus they are known to have several anti cancer properties as well as being good for heart health.
Cruciferous vegetables contain goitrogens which can interfere with thyroid hormone production, so there is some debate as to the wisdom of eating them raw. My personal opinion on the raw vs cooked argument is that cooked is preferable, and infinitely tastier!
Orange cauliflowers contain 25% more vitamin C than standard caulis. As well as being nutritious, Romanesco cauliflowers are visually stunning, and a perfect example of fractals in nature.
Serve with a delicious selection of Indian foods such as those included in our Indian Banquet Menu which includes these tasty samosas.
