Cauliflower Rice & Pomegranate Salad

I have literally just discovered the wonders of cauliflower rice and now I make a big batch every couple of weeks. Put half in the freezer and with the rest make a few mid week meals. 

Here I use the cauliflower rice as a base for a deliciously mood boosting salad but feel free to pick and choose what you want to add as i’m finding cauliflower rice pretty much goes with anything!

What makes cauliflower VYM approved:

  • Boost brain and heart health due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties
  • Has lots of Vitamin B which improves memory and protects the brain from age related symptoms
  • Improves digestion with the abundance of fiber, meaning we feel lighter and more energised in mood

Top tip: Boiling reduces it’s super power, so always try lightly sautéeing as suggested in this recipe or roasting
