Cauliflower “Rice”

Leave a comment

Cauliflower “rice” is similar to cauliflower mashed potatoes popularized by the South Beach Diet about a decade ago. If you aren’t familiar with this dish, it is basically vegetable alchemy, turning a tasty, healthy vegetable (cauliflower) into a delicious, starchy, decadent-tasting dish (mashed potatoes.) In my opinion, cauliflower mashed potatoes works a little better than cauliflower rice (it’s a texture thing) but cauliflower rice works great in saucy dishes with lots of flavors. It’s a wonderful low carb, low cal alternative to rice to sop up juices of Indian or Thai cuisine or the like, (although I learned the hard way it does not make good sushi rice.)

There are approximately 395,062 recipes for cauliflower rice on the internet. This is mine. I’m in love with this stuff and I’ll use it in lots of future posts. Happy Health!

 Cauliflower “Rice”

Cauliflower Rice

1 head cauliflower (this will make A LOT of “rice”)

1 small onion, chopped

4-8 garlic cloves (depending on how much you like garlic)

1/2 tbsp-ish rice bran, grapeseed or coconut oil

1/4 cup-ish chicken or veggie broth

salt to taste

 

It’s really simple. Shred a head of cauliflower in a food processor or with a cheese grater. If you use a food processor, the cauliflower chops best and most evenly with the “pulse” option. Sauté onions and garlic in a pan with oil. Add chicken or veggie broth and cauliflower. Cook until cauliflower becomes tender and you can even brown the cauliflower a bit for extra flavor. Add salt to taste. I make a bunch of this at once and use it for dishes throughout the week. A healthy, delicious time-saver! And you can gorge on it because it is super low calorie (minus a pat of butter, of course….)
