Creamy Cashew Thai Chicken with Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

One of my FAVORITE things inward the Earth to do is copy meals with a healthier spin, without sacrificing flavor. This one delivers..and and so more or less. SO much season y'all guys! I’one thousand in dear. The cauliflower rice makes the dish super depression carb as well as ups the veggie content, which I am e'er inwards favor of. It comes together pretty rapidly too..the nearly time consuming role of this repast is in all likelihood all of the chopping and dicing!

This dish is also super forgiving. You tin can add together whatsoever veggies y'all desire. These only come about to be a few of my faves. This would be bang-up amongst broccoli, snap peas, xanthous crush, bok choy, or fifty-fifty mushrooms.

H5N1 fourth dimension saving hack y'all could use is Trader Joe’sec cauliflower rice. It’s JUST cauliflower as well as it’s additives! It doesn’t have long at all to turn over your cauliflower a whirl inward the food processor, but I’one thousand ever looking for fourth dimension saving tips! Definitely look for it if you accept a TJ’s almost y'all. 🙂
Another one of my new institute loves is CASHEW BUTTER. It’sec SO creamy as well as delicious. It has this sugariness to it that I tin can’t describe, simply you lot should totally pick upwards a jar if you lot haven’t tried it. If you lot’re ill of almond or peanut butter, it’second a cracking option. Let’second live real, I never go sick of whatsoever nut butter, just it’s a squeamish alter.

My favorite brand is Maisie Jane’sec. It’sec UNREAL. Target’s merely balanced brand is delicious besides.

This recipe is as well paleo-friendly, depression-carb, together with high protein! So much good.
