Vegetable “Rice” (AIP, Keto, Plant-Based)

Vegetable “rice” is a great low-carb, gut friendly and nutrient-dense substitute for grains like rice, quinoa and couscous. It’s extremely versatile and can be used as a base or side for so many dishes.

I like to make a batch of this “rice” ahead of time and add it to different meals throughout my week. It makes meal prep super easy – and adds tons of flavour and nutrients to my meals!

Here are a few great ways to add vegetable “rice” to your menu …

1. Use it as a side to salmon, steak, chicken or another protein source.

2. Use it as a base for a stir-fry.

3. Top it with fried eggs for a nutrient-rich breakfast. Check out this recipe!

4. Add “rice” and a can of wild salmon, sardines or tuna into a container and take it with you to work for a healthy lunch.

5. Eat it on its own as a mid-day snack — vegetable “rice” tastes great cold too, so just grab the leftovers from the fridge and enjoy!
