Cauliflower Rice

I eat fairly low carb, and try to include tons of veggies in my meals. This means I avoid grains, including rice. Cauliflower rice makes a great substitute that is delicious. Here are the basics.

Ingredients:

  • One head of cauliflower 
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper 

cauliflower processed

Implement it:

Cut all the florets off of the cauliflower and toss them in your food processor.  Process briefly until the cauliflower is in crumbles. If you don’t have a food processor, you can grate the cauliflower.  Spread the crumbles out on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil.  Add some salt and pepper and bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes.  It is now ready to use (like rice) in your favorite recipes. 

Here are my favorites:

  1. Sauté some onion in butter. Add the cauliflower rice when the onions are soft. Sauté until hot. Add your favorite chopped herbs such as parsley, mint, cilantro, or dill. Add some salt and pepper. Serve. 
  2. Sauté some onions, garlic and mushrooms in butter. When soft, add the cauliflower rice. When hot add a handful of chopped parsley and salt and pepper. 
  3. Make “chicken bog” by sautéing onions, chopped carrots, and chopped celery. Add chicken pieces and sauté until done. Add the cauliflower, mix it all up and cook until just hot. Add some bone broth to make it all moist and stick together.   Add your favorite herbs, such as parsley or mint.  This is yummy as a main dish, with veggies on the side, or as breakfast with a couple of eggs on top. 
  4. Use this in Mexican cooking in place of rice
  5. Use this in Asian cooking in place of rice
