If you trying to reduce your carbohydrates, or are following a lower-carb eating pattern than this recipe is a must-try! Looking more closely at some of the nutrition highlights. Firstly, the chilli will boost your metabolism in this meal. The onions provide an antibacterial compound called Quercetin which will make sure your immune system is strong. Adding to the immune support is the crushed garlic which has a compound called Allicin. Ginger cannot be forgotten and does not only add delicious taste and aroma but is a fantastic way to help soothe your gut and reduce nausea.
Adding to the immune support the capsicum and lemon juice will provide you with vitamin C. Cauliflower is not only a delicious alternative to rice but has anti-cancerous properties due to the substances in it known as glucosinolates.
