Shrimp and Cauliflower “Grits”

Active time: 25 minutes Total time: 35 minutes

This quick, mildly spicy Cajun-inspired shrimp dish substitutes traditional corn grits with grated cauliflower. When cooked with a little milk and bay leaves, the cauliflower becomes tender and creamy. If you keep the cauliflower head whole, it makes grating the cauliflower a breeze, just stop when you get to the hardest part of the core.

RD tip: Swapping corn grits for cauliflower increases the fiber content by 5 grams. This recipe is great if you are trying to eat a high-protein diet because you still want to make sure you’re getting enough fiber.
