I have been on a shrimp kick lately – I’ve been making all sorts of keto shrimp recipes like these keto shrimp burritos, and also throw them in my lunch bowls often. This keto shrimp recipe with sautéed spinach over riced cauliflower is DELICIOUS.

Cauliflower is hailed as the carb-killer – and it’s definitely a fantastic substitute for some starches. I’m not on board with the cauliflower pizza crust train yet – but I’ll keep experimenting until I get a homemade cauliflower crust that works.

However, I love riced cauliflower in “rice” bowls for lunch because they’re delicious and easy to prep ahead of time. This sautéed shrimp and spinach is something I used to make all the time with rice for meal prep even before going keto – the seasoning can be switched up to have more of a Thai or Indian flair…both the spinach and shrimp take on flavors well, as does the cauliflower!

I usually pick up frozen, riced cauliflower at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, however you can easily make your own by putting cauliflower florets in a food processor and chopping it up. Either way, you’ll get the same, delicious result!

If you’re not a fan of cauliflower rice, you can also try this over shirataki noodles or wrap them in cabbage or lettuce as a wrap.
