If you’re missing Mexican burrito rice bowls, then you’re in the right place. Today we will cook a low-carb shrimp rice bowl, which is a perfectly quick and healthy lunch or dinner. 

This recipe is delicious, nourishing, and most importantly, it’s low carb and you can enjoy it without feeling guilty or bloated. 

Traditional rice bowls are full of beans and rice. Even a small serving of these ingredients can make you feel bloated, and might kick you out of ketosis.

The base of the rice bowls is, of course, rice. As you know, rice contains a lot of carbohydrates. So to make the low-carb rice bowl, we will use cauliflower rice instead. 

Also we’ll need shrimp, bell pepper, avocado, spinach and lime. The thing that ties all ingredients of our Keto Mexican Shrimp Rice Bowl together is creamy parsley lime dressing. And do not be afraid to replace any of the ingredients with your favourite ones as long as they are low-carb!


Let’s Do It!

Start by making your dressing. Simply add sour cream, lime juice, parsley, garlic flakes, and a pinch of erythritol to the food processor. Season with salt and pepper and blend until homogeneous.

Prepare the  cauliflower rice according to the package instructions and divide it between bowls. If you make cauliflower rice from scratch, simply process cauliflower florets into small grain-sized pieces then cook using a microwave or frying pan.

Top each bowl with avocado slices, pepper chunks, chopped spinach and cooked shrimps. Pour prepared creamy dressing on top and serve with a lime wedge.
