Cauliflower curry couscous is a great side dish, without actual couscous in it. This recipe is all cauliflower and perfect for low carb diet seekers. This white veggie replace couscous, bulgur, rice to perfection without being packed with carbohydrates, it represents 1/10 of white rice carb amount. I’m on this journey to lower my carb intake, I’ve been researching the internet for some nice recipes and tricks to help out.
