You’d think “keto rice / cus cus, etc” only applies with cauliflower. Think laterally. Cabbages, Broccoli, lettuces, etc.
The “Riced” Keto Cabbage
In my continuing appraisal of the humble cabbage – this has been my newly acquired ritual since last few month/s.
As opposed to buying cauliflowers which are generally as expensive as its twin brother brocolli (up to $3.50 per head) – well, this would save you more money (Average price for large entire head = $1.5 to $2, sometimes as low as 49 cents at Spudshed).
- Spare yourself $2 for an entire head of cabbage (yes, including the outer leaves)
- Invest a $15 food chopper / processor (go get one @ Target).
- Cut into smaller pieces first before bundling them into the chopper in one handful at a time.
- Chop / process till fine.
How to cook them? Easy.
- Microwave on high 1.5 minutes per cup (110g).
- Mix with two teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and heavy cream, oils, sour cream, butter, whatever fat sources you fancy. Plenty of salt.
- Or Spoon into your 30g TVP (with water) and microwave together for 2.5 mins. Two boiled eggs. 30g of butter or heavy cream. Done.
