You have to try this Healthy Turmeric Cauliflower Rice!  Have you heard about the benefits of turmeric? Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, can increase antioxidants, and lowers your risk for heart disease to name a few.

This recipe is vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  You can turn it into a main dish by adding some vegetables and your favorite protein.  I think carrots and peppers would go really well with the flavors.  For protein, I would suggest chickpeas or tofu if you eat soy. It’s very versatile!

We filmed a short video for this recipe.  You can view it below.
