Cauliflower Rice Chicken Stir-Fry

Did you know that you can make so many different dishes with one head of cauliflower? I haven’t had the pleasure of trying them all just yet but over the weekend I thought why not try something unique. I love rice, especially brown rice but I wanted to stay away from the extra carbs so this dish was born.

 

Its quick and easy to make plus extremely healthy. 

 

Why do I love cauliflower so much you ask?  

Well, aside from its multi-uses in recipes, it also have many amazing health benefits!

 

8 top health benefits of cauliflower:

  1. Fights cancer
  2. Boosts heart health
  3. Anti-inflammatory
  4. Rich in vitamins and minerals
  5. Boosts brain health
  6. Detoxifies
