Thai Curried Cauliflower Rice with Chickpeas

Unfortunately the Easter weekend is coming to an end, I hope everyone had a good holiday. We spent the weekend away at Craigleith Provincial Park in our travel trailer. It was a very rainy and windy weekend, but we still had fun. It was great just to get away from it all. Our boys didn’t come with us yet again which is becoming the norm.

The camp site looked rather different from previous years since they had a violent tornado rip through the park which up rooted a lot of nice old pine trees making it very open and sparse in some areas. Despite the bad weather the park was extremely busy with a good mixture of tent and trailer campers. It seems I live of Curries and rice but for a change I made Cauliflower rice instead. This recipe is very quick and easy with not a lot of ingredients, simply with Cauliflower, Chickpeas and Spinach. These are things I have handy at home most of the time.
