Default Favorite low carb veggies

OK, I admit it. I am lazy. I eat a lot of raw spinach, not only because I like it, but because i don't have to cook it. What are your favorite low carb veggies and how do you prepare them?

Unfortunately, broccoli makes me physically ill-even though I love it. I have no idea why.

The rice is really easy, you just cut it into florets then put them in a food proccessor and chop them nit too fine just so they are like rice, put in a dish cover with seran wrap and microwave for about 6 minutes. Dont over cook it will get mushy.I will get the other recipes for you.enjoy.

This is great when you are having something that mashed potatoes go with.


Faux Mashed Potatoes
1 pkg. frozen cauliflower or 1 lb. fresh
3 TB. butter
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste
2 TB chopped chives

In a saucepan or vegetable steamer, cook cauliflower until very tender, about 10-15 min. Drain cauliflower until all liquid is gone. In a glass bowl combine cooked, drained cauliflower, sour cream, cream cheese and 1 TB of the chives. Using a hand mixer, whip the cauliflower until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with remaining chives.

About 4 servings
3 grams of carbs per serving

I was really surprised with how much the texture was like mashed potatoes. Just make sure you drain the cooked cauliflower really well. I didn't and they came out pretty thin.
