Instead of rice. I’m not keen on cauliflower rice either.

I make roast potatoes with ours sometimes or naan bread and add salad.


Starlight456 · 22/06/2019 07:34

I cooked an aubergine 🍆 and had it with curry the other day

FermatsTheorem · 22/06/2019 07:37

That does sound nice Henny but OP's asking for advice on low carb alternatives.

I'm still eating rice, OP, but trying to serve myself half the portion size I normally would.

Is it carbs as a whole, or does glycaemic index play a part? If the latter, could you try wholemeal chapattis?

Or how about swapping the carbs for a vegetable side or dhal?

Sorry should have given more information. I’m looking for a paleo alternative, so no grains

Or potatoes!

I use cauliflower rice. You can buy it frozen in serving sized bags and takes a few mins to microwave.

Topsy1976 · 22/06/2019 07:47

Sorry just saw you said you don't like it!Smile

ZenNudist · 22/06/2019 07:49

I dont think much pf cauliflower rice either. I quite like curry with a side of veg, usually whole florets of cauliflower and broccoli.

Todayisanewday75 · 22/06/2019 07:50

I think it’s mostly the smell, puts me off before I even start eating

Have you tried broccoli rice? Similar to cauliflower but without the smell and that slightly bitter taste.

Also spiralised veg such as courgette or butternut squash lightly boiled?

cricketmum84 · 22/06/2019 07:51

Salad is nice with curry too, I like a mid of rocket, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and lots of red onion.

LoveIsHope · 22/06/2019 07:51

Chapattis made from corn flour?

Not sure if this is considered a grain though

SorrelForbes · 22/06/2019 07:52

I just have broccoli, kale, fine beans or similar.

BobbyBrewstersMagicTorch · 22/06/2019 07:52

How about making a dry curry as an accompaniment from butternut squash or chickpeas, to give you a bit of crunch? Not the same as rice, but might work.

twolittleboysonetiredmum · 22/06/2019 07:53

I tend to make a salad or cook broccoli or green beans to put it on. Works fine. I also can’t stand cauliflower rice. I also hate courgetti- it’s so wet!

ShadowKitty · 22/06/2019 07:56

How about stir fry veg that you buy in the bags?

FreeFreesia · 22/06/2019 07:56

Hard boiled egg.
Grated carrot gives good texture.

catwithflowers · 22/06/2019 07:58

You can’t have chick peas or lentils on a low-carb diet (sadly, as I love them both 😶). Okra, pan fried or roasted in the oven is a good, low-carb side. Aubergine or green beans good too.

ImpracticalCape · 22/06/2019 08:04

O just have it in a bowl with no side. Delicious.
Otherwise zero noodles cut up into rice bits. Roasted broccoli or any other roasted veg, green beans.
Cauli rice is delicious if roasted in the oven in a dish. Mix in olive oil, salt and fennel seed and oven on high for around 30 mins

OwlDoll · 22/06/2019 08:06

Do you like cauliflower at all OP? I usually roast cauliflowers florets in a little oil in the oven. It's delicious!

DesperatelySeekingSarah · 22/06/2019 08:09

I make naan breads out of coconut flour and physillium husk. They are really nice

Sag paneer
Green beans or broccoli with chilli

RocketPockets · 22/06/2019 08:15

I either have it by itself with added veg & spinach in the curry or with some whole broccoli florets

notatwork · 22/06/2019 08:15

pick tandoori or shashlik and have it with salad and yogurt. Less sauce, so no grains required.
If you can't resist then have you tried low carb bread made with almond flour: almond paleo bread
