Low carb recipe for Beef and Bacon "Rice" with Pine Nuts which belongs to the Sides recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. head cauliflower
  2. 4 strips bacon
  3. medium onion, chopped
  4. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) liquid beef bouillon concentrate
  5. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) tomato sauce
  6. 2 tablespoons (18 g) toasted pine nuts
  7. 2 tablespoons (7.6 g) chopped parsley

Cooking Instructions

Run the cauliflower through the food processor using the shredding blade, put it in a microwaveable casserole dish, add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water, cover it, and cook it on high for 7 minutes.

While that's cooking, cut the bacon into little pieces?kitchen shears are good for this?and start the little bacon bits frying in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

When a little grease has cooked out of the bacon, throw the onion into the skillet.

Fry them until the onion is translucent and the bacon is browned and getting crisp.

By now the cauliflower should be done.

Drain it and throw it in the skillet with the bacon and onion.

Add the beef bouillon concentrate and tomato sauce and stir the whole thing up to combine everything?you can add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water, if you like, to help the liquid flavorings spread.

Stir in the pine nuts and parsley (you can just snip it right into the skillet with clean kitchen shears) and serve.
