    • Low Carb Ham and Rice Salad

      I made this low carb ham and rice salad up yesterday to use up some of our leftover Christmas ham as well as some cauliflower rice I had left in the fridge from the night before. I was surprised how nice this was, you could change the salad ingredients with what ever you have on hand, the important ingredient is the caulirice anything else can change how you see fit. This was on the spot so I didn't measure but I'm guessing I used around 2 cups maybe a touch more of cold caulirice.

      To prepare a batch of cauliflower rice, just process a head of cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles rice. Heat up a fry pan with a small amount of butter/ghee and/or some coconut oil and panfry the cauliflower rice for a few minutes or so until soft. Then store in the fridge until cold.

    • It's great with a curry, I love the cauliflower rice now. Will be interesting to see if I will still like spaghetti squash with my curries when I harvest them in a few months!
