    i am an asian from the philippines. our staple food is rice. what is the best substitute for rice in lchf menu?
  2. Linda
    I find using cauliflower a very good substitute. There are lots of recipes where it replaces rice. There is a great tai red chicken curry recipe on here that I make all the time using cauli...you just put cauli in food processor and pulse a few times, then fry in butter...Another thing I do with the Cauli is when frying in butter, add some spring onion, chopped peppers and some herbs...sensational ?

    Hi Erik!

    If you aren't a vegan, then egg and cream (fatty milk products) are good alternatives.

    What type of herbs are good to use?

    Hi Eva!

    Parsley, basil, oregano, cilantro, thyme or rosemary are a few ideas but please feel free to experiment with this recipe and use other herbs and try mixing different kinds. Good luck!
