Keto Saffron Rice

This variation on cauliflower rice can be ready to go in under 10 minutes. Include this as a side dish to your keto curries, stews, or Eastern-inspired dishes. Saffron can typically be found in specialty grocery stores or in international aisles. Only a small amount is needed to produce the aromatic flavors.

The original recipe here makes about 1 ½ c. total.

    Seems like a lot of Saffron. Is a half teaspoon correct?

      Yes! But use as much or as little as you like - the saffron won't effect your carbs.

    Can I substitute Tumeric for the saffron?

      Although not quite the same, turmeric will add wonderful health benefits! Start with just a 1/4 tsp and add more to taste.
