My husband and I have been watching our carbs. One night I threw together these ingredients, and it turned out fantastic! I hope this helps you on your diet journey. It’s very quick and easy to make. Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 ¾ cups cauliflower florets, broken into bite size pieces
  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 spreadable cheese wedges (such as The Laughing Cow® Creamy Swiss Garlic & Herb)

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Run cauliflower through a food processor to get 2 cups of cauliflower grounds a bit larger than the consistency of grits.
  2. 2 Combine cauliflower, spinach, butter, and salt in a large pot over low heat. Cover and cook until cauliflower is soft and spinach has wilted, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in cheese wedges until the cauliflower and spinach are coated and no cheese clumps remain.

  9. Was looking to add some veggies to my keto creamy curry and didn't have a food processor so I grated the cauliflower. I also added 2 cloves of garlic and used coconut oil instead of butter and that really complimented the dish.
