Coconut Cashew Chicken with Cauliflower Rice (Paleo)

So I absolutely loved this dish! I’m a huge fan of having nuts in dinner meals and I’m also a huge fan of cilantro. The cilantro you can put as little or as much as you want, so even if you aren’t a cilantro lover but like the curry flavor you’ll still enjoy the meal.

CAULIFLOWER RICE

Ingredients:

1/2-1 head of cauliflower (depends on how much “rice” you want)

Directions:

1. Cut from stem and place in food processor.

2. Pulse until rice like.

3. Place in microwave for about 3 minutes.

*Side note: If you haven’t tried cauliflower rice, try it! It tricks your brain into thinking your eating rice without the calories of actually eating it.
