I’ve been curious about cauliflower rice for a while, so I finally decided to try it. Cauliflower is one of the few vegetables that actually fills me up, so I love replacing high carb rice with this superfood veggie! The curry sauce is made with a base of cashews, which make it even more filling. Jim, Emily, and I loved this dish, but it was too spicy for the other kids. Actually, it was too spicy for Emi, too, but she rinsed some of the sauce off in a strainer before eating it…she’s a smarty!
Cauliflower, turmeric, and garlic are the superfood superstars of this recipe. Cauliflower has glucosinolates and thiocyanates, which contain sulfur and help the body to detox and fight off cancer. Cauliflower and turmeric team up well to beat up prostate cancer, in particular, so feel free to add extra turmeric to this recipe. Turmeric will also help your mood!

Garlic adds more than just flavor to this cauliflower rice! I’ve kept it raw, so that you can enjoy the benefits of the compound allicin, which is compromised when you cook garlic. Raw allicin is released when garlic is crushed or sliced, and it boosts your immune system and kills cancer cells. I’ve read that it’s best to crush or slice your garlic, then let it sit out for a few minutes before combining it with a sauce that includes lemon juice (the pH level of lemon messes up the production of allicin). Try to do that for this recipe! For more information about garlic, check out this article.
