Trying to watch your carbs but don’t think you can enjoy comfort food?  Think again!

Tonight I made a meatloaf with marinara and mozzarella and cauliflower rice – pure comfort.

I used 1# of meatloaf mix (beef, pork, veal combo) and added 1 egg, some Parmesan cheese, beef stock, onion powder, chopped basil and parsley.  Mixed till combined and formed into a loaf.  I put the loaf on a foiled lined cookie pan and cooked at 350 for 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven, spread with your favorite marinara, pizza, or spaghetti sauce and put back in the oven for about 5 minutes.  Then sprinkle top of meatloaf with shredded mozzarella and put back in oven till cheese is melted and lightly browned.  Allow to cool then slice.

For the rice I took some cauliflower florets and pulsed in my food processor until it resembled rice.  In a saute pan, drizzle some olive oil and add about 2 sliced green onions.  Cook 1-2 minutes then add the “riced” cauliflower and stir to combine.  Cook 5-8 minutes until cauliflower softens but does not get mushy.  Remove cauliflower from pan and put into bowl.  Squeeze the juice from 1/2 lime over rice and stir.  Salt and pepper to taste – yummy!

A delicious low carb, grain free, comfort dinner.  Add a nice tossed salad and you have a complete meal.
