Almond-Pesto Cauliflower “Rice” Pilaf
Harness the cauli power. | 4 Servings
Perhaps nothing has seen a greater comeback in recent years than the humble cauliflower. This pilaf harnesses the cauli power by turning the veg into grain-sized, lower-carb alternative to rice. The “rice” is mixed with almonds for a crunchy texture and the pilaf is finished with herby pesto swirls that will make your pallet swoon.
