Cauliflower Rice

 

Ingredients

1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets (small pieces)

2 cloves garlic, minced or finely chopped

2tsp coconut oil 

 

Method

  • Put caulflower florets (pieces) into a blender & pulse until it becomes the size of rice or cous cous. Alternatively, if you don't have a blender, chop cauliflower finely until it forms the same-ish size.

  • Heat a non stick saucepan on medium- high heat, until hot.

  • Add coconut oil & garlic, saute until golden brown.

  • Add 'riced' cauliflower to the pan and saute for around 5-7 mins. Use a spatula to continually move the rice around the pan so it is evenly cooked & doesn't become mushy.

 

Serve as you would rice or pasta!

 

Ideas:

  • Make it fried 'rice' by adding chopped onion, pieces of chopped organic bacon, corn & capsium. On the side make a thin egg crepe, chop that & chuck it in too. You could also add some organic shredded chicken breast & a dash of tamari.

  • Roll it in seaweed sheets, with your favourite fillings & make into SUSHI!

  • Use  the left-overs- add an egg or two, chuck in some extra vege's, mix all together & bake or pan fry into fritters. Top with some avocoado & tomato.
