As an adult, I’ve grown to appreciate asparagus. The keto diet (and most healthy eating plans) calls for a plate full of vegetables. My Pan-Charred Asparagus Salad fits the bill of having healthy fats and not overly cooked vegetables for flavor and nutrition. Gluten free, sugar free, and low carb, this recipe ticks all the boxes for a good side dish.
However, I’m not one of those people to be satisfied with a pale substitution. That’s one of the reasons I’ve held off on sharing a cauliflower rice recipe. Cauliflower is neither rice nor potatoes. Cauliflower deserves to be recognized for its own merits: high in vitamins, low in carbs, sugar free, gluten free, full of fiber, and versatile. My Lemon Herb Riced Cauliflower recipe is a side dish that doesn’t pretend to be something else because it doesn’t need to.
