Beef Kabobs with Herbed Cauli Rice (THM S)
Summertime is for grilling! And what better way to get in the spirit of grilling than a good kabob?
Grilling, to me, means you get more flavor in less time. This is definitely part of my Dad's personality in me, but I LOVE a good char. It makes food more appealing to the eye, and adds depth of flavor. I don't have an outdoor grill, but my cast iron grill certainly gets the job done.
Where I struggle is sides!
So, as I was flipping through my Barefoot Contessa cookbook I came across an herbed rice recipe. The concept may be simple, but let me tell you the flavor is awesome.
I decided to swap her jasmine rice for cauliflower rice (gluten free and low carb, score!) and I added sliced almonds for a little crunch. I'll tell you, the almonds aren't completely necessary but they do add a nice textural component.
Since it's not necessary for my creatures and husband to be low carb, I added some steamed brown rice to theirs for balance. Just because momma doesn't eat the carbs doesn't mean everyone has to do without - they are growing creatures, after all.
