Keto Spinach Rice Pilaf

  • Author: Natalie

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

  4. Serve warm.
  5. As always, lots of tips, FAQs and substitution info in the Recipe Notes!


Cooking Fat: I love the flavor of ghee in this recipe, but you could also use olive oil, avocado oil or coconut oil. If you’re ok with dairy, grass fed butter would be great too.

Hearts of Palm Rice: The combo of hearts of palm rice and spinach is amazing! You could also use cauliflower rice. I prefer frozen since it is the most convenient, cheapest and most neutral flavor. Easiest would be to thaw the rice, squeeze out all the water using a dish rag, then follow the recipe as written.

Spinach: I love organic baby spinach, but you could also use kale, or finely chopped chard.
