I love cauliflower rice. Its THM FP which makes it so versatile and I love that about it. But my husband has grown tired of it and he sighs when I make it! I wanted to serve a meal on a bed of cauliflower rice and was inspired to change it up for my husband!
I pulled out a couple carrots and found that I can make a flavorful rice dish with carrots! It honestly took about the same amount of time as making cauliflower rice which was a surprise and we both loved it! Today I was making lunch just for me and used 3 small-medium carrots. Id say you probably want 2-3 carrots per person you are cooking for.
Start with a couple of whole carrots, wash and peel them- or rinse off some baby carrots and get started! Then chop the washed/peeled carrots super small! I cut them into 1 inch slices and used my slap-chopper to chop them super small. Theres a bunch of slap choppers out there and some of them are hard to clean- which I why I love mine because it completely comes apart and goes right in the dishwasher.
Then heat 1 tsp of oil in a large skillet and cook the carrots until tender! It takes about 7-8 minutes. Then season with salt and pepper just as you would cauliflower rice! Since this vegetable is a healthy carb, its a THM E version of rice. But its a nice way to get vegetables onto your plate, along with some healthy carbs! I encourage you to try it!
Let us know what you think!! Thanks!
Then use a tsp of oil in a large skillet and cook the carrots for about 7 minutes stirring frequently. I seasoned with salt and pepper just like I would the cauliflower rice. It was so tasty! You simply must try it
