I’ve been keto for 7 weeks and I miss rice terribly. Cauliflower does a good job as a substitute but rice and quinoa are big favorites of mine

I love rice dishes as you can add any vegetable of your choice. I have never added cheese to rice.

My main issue with frozen veg is that I don’t like peas and they always have so many peas in them. Other than that this looks like a great easy way to have your side dish ready x

Oo this is such a fab idea and a great way to get the kids to try and eat a few more veggies too! My two don’t eat potato so I always struggle for things to go with meat etc so we will definitely give this recipe a try! Thanks for sharing x
