This Curry Cauliflower rice dish goes very well with Organic tofu. Stir-frying is one of the most well- known methods for cooking tofu. You’ll want to start with organic tofu that’s been pressed and then cut into cubes. Stir-fry the tofu over high heat to get it nice and crisp. You can also put the tofu in a marinade before stir-frying or coat it with a sauce after.
Lemon roasted chicken thighs go well with Curry Cauliflower rice. Take the zest of two lemons and muddle it with pink sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Juice the lemons in a roasting pan. Place the thighs in skin side up and slather the skins with the zest mixture. Let them sit for 15 minutes and then roast in a preheated 425 degree oven for 40 minutes. When serving, use some Italian parsley to brighten up the plates.
You can also make a fresh toss salad on the side.
