Cauliflower Rice Enchilada Bowl

Are you watching what you eat or limiting carbs? I’ve been eating healthier since the beginning of the year and that means I’ve cut back a great deal on carbs. Though I enjoy making and eating rice, it’s something that I don’t have to often anymore. Good thing there are other flavourful alternatives like cauliflower rice! It’s healthy, low carb and delicious. And I can enjoy it guilt-free! I don’t feel bad about having seconds.

This recipe for Cauliflower Rice Enchilada Bowl has all the spicy Mexican flavours I love minus the carbs. Even if you don’t care that much for cauliflower on its own, you might like it in this recipe. I’ve made cauliflower pizza crust and mashed cauliflower in the past. Though you can tell that it’s different, it still tastes good to me especially when I know that I can eat it without worrying about my waist line!

At first glance, you can’t even tell that it’s not actually rice in the bowl. If you look close enough you can see, but you’ll have to get past all the bright toppings taking centre stage!
