Have you ever tried cauliflower rice? It’s gained a lot of popularity and for good reason – it’s delicious! Cauliflower rice is essentially as it sounds, “rice” made from cauliflower. Basically, cauliflower is placed in a food processor to be become into a grain-like consistency. It surprisingly a great substitute for rice, grains or even bread like in this cauliflower stuffing. Cauliflower is basically a sponge: it’ll soak up the flavor of whatever you cook it with just like bread. Similar to traditional stuffing I’ve included the classics like celery, onion, mushrooms and of course, sage but this version is grain-free and gluten-free. This low-carb cauliflower stuffing proves that you don’t necessarily need bread to make an amazing stuffing. for the best robust flavor I roasted the cauliflower, but you can make this recipe a lot quicker and use pre-made cauliflower rice.

Did you know studies show: Cauliflower provides some powerful health benefits.
It is a great source of nutrients. Cauliflower is a good source of choline, a nutrient many people are lacking. Cauliflower is low in calories but high in fiber and water — all properties that may assist in weight loss. Cauliflower contains unique antioxidants that may reduce inflammation and protect against several diseases, such as cancer and diabetes, and heart disease. It’s tasty, easy to prepare and can replace high-carb foods in several recipes. Cauliflower can replace grains and legumes in many recipes. So long story short cauliflower is a great healthy substitute for many things that doesn't create huge spikes in blood sugar.
However, keep in mind that adding more produce into the diet won’t necessarily help with weight loss or other health benefits, unless it replaces another food, such as refined carbohydrates of breading and pasta.
