This loaded keto cauliflower bowl is a rich and flavorful, filling meal that will remind you of a baked potato!
If you’ve been missing baked potatoes since starting your low carb lifestyle, this dish is for you!
I wasn’t the biggest cauliflower fan at the beginning, and my husband definitely still isn’t... it can be hard to get used to because even though lots of recipes are labeled “cauliflower mac and cheese” or “cauliflower wings” the nutritious vegetable isn’t quite the same as the carby alternative.
In fact, I had to take down a recipe I did for buffalo cauliflower wings because it just didn’t feel right...they weren’t bad..but they weren’t like wings at all!
One way to help you get over eating cauliflower, though, is to mask the flavor with lots of seasoned yummy-ness. That’s what I did in my Keto Lasagna recipe. And it was totally delicious!
But this recipe is a game changer. Even if you’ve sworn off of cauliflower, this is the recipe to bring you back in.
Loaded Keto Cauliflower Bowl
Especially as the weather starts to get colder, I’m reminded of how much I used to love a warm baked potato in the Fall...loaded with all of the fixings from bacon to sour cream and chives...
I can practically taste it!
But why practically taste it when you can get suuuper close to the flavor without all the carbs?
I used leftover brisket for this recipe, but you could easily swap that out for any shredded beef or chicken. It'll be just as delicious!
Just as a side note: one medium baked potato has 33 NET carbs. Yes, after the fiber is subtracted, one plain potato has more carbs than most Keto-ers eat in an entire day.
In comparison, here are the macros for this recipe...all loaded up (these are per serving and the recipe yields about 4 servings of 1 cup each):
Total Carbs: 5g
Net Carbs: 3g
See the difference?
This instant pot loaded keto cauliflower bowl is a rich and flavorful, filling meal that will remind you of a baked potato!
Feel free to substitute chicken or other shredded beef as your meat.
I did not remove excess moisture from the cauliflower because I steamed it. The slight bit of added moisture from this is necessary to the dish. If you boil your cauliflower, you may find it helpful to remove part of the excess water by using a towel or cheesecloth but do not dry it out completely.
