Indian Chicken Bowl with Turmeric “Rice" - Better Nutrition

This grain-free bowl uses cauliflower instead of rice. It's topped with a simple, flavorful curry loaded with low-starch vegetables and candida-fighting herbs and spices. Adjust the curry powder to taste and add cayenne pepper for extra spiciness. Store-bought rotisserie chicken saves time, but you can also use tofu, shrimp, or any white fish.
