Recipe: Cauliflower “Rice”
The texture of this dish is just like rice and it makes a great alternative for those avoiding grains or carbs. It's also perfect for sneaking more veggies into your family meals.
- 1 medium head cauliflower
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
- 1/4 tsp. dehydrated minced garlic (or 2 fresh cloves garlic, minced)
- 1 Tbsp. Asian-inspired seasoning like:
- Indochina Seasoning
- Asian Style Sprinkle
- salt & pepper for seasoning
- 2 Tbsp. white sesame seeds
- 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
Cut cauliflower into florets. Place florets in a food processor and pulse until the texture resembles rice or couscous, about 15 to 20 pulses. (Alternatively, grate the cauliflower into a bowl using a hand grater.) Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, sesame seeds, and salt & pepper to taste. Saute until fragrant, 3 to 4 min. Stir in “riced” cauliflower, Asian-inspired seasoning of choice, rice vinegar, and sesame oil and cook for 6 to 8 min., until cauliflower is cooked through but the texture is still firm. Remove from heat and serve.
Serve with an Asian-inspired meal instead of rice or noodles. Perfect with our Grilled Mongolian Beef recipe.
