“Kale”-iflower & Bacon Side

Gluten FreeSugar FreeLow CarbKeto

We’ve made this recipe as a side dish and we also will top it with a protein (ex, scallops taste amazing with this as a base).

This is a simple and quite tasty side dish, base for a main dish, or even as a warm lunch salad. I make bacon ahead of time and I also buy bags of organic cauliflower rice from Costco so this is actually quite easy.  I make a big batch of bacon several times per week so I almost always have it on hand! Ingredients:

  • 8 slices of bacon, chopped and cooked
  • 2 cups of Kale
  • 1/2 medium purple onion, diced
  • 2 green zucchini, diced
  • 2 cups cauliflower rice
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1-2 Tablespoons avocado oil or coconut oil
  • Sale and pepper to taste

The fun part: Melt avocado oil or coconut oil over medium heat.  Add all ingredients!  See – easy, right?

While this is sauteing, chop bacon and cook on the stove.  OR use the perfect bacon recipe and chop after it is cooked.   I almost always bake my bacon but this time I chopped it and cooked it on the stove.  If you bake it, make sure to start it earlier since it will take a bit longer.

Sautee veggies for about 10 minutes.  Mix bacon into pan and saute for about 5 minutes more for the flavors to blend.
