Cauliflower Rice

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Procedure

  1. Place the chopped cauliflower florets into a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower has reduced into tiny pieces – the same size as grains of rice (or chop by hand with a sharp knife).
  2. In a frying pan, heat the coconut oil over medium heat and lightly cook the cauliflower for about 4 to 6 minutes, or until softened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve it where you would normally have rice – so much healthier for you and what I love is that it take a quarter of the time to cook!
  4. You can add chili, other spices, seeds, nuts, herbs, meats, seafood, vegetables, sauces, etc.
