Cauliflower Rice: Why You Should Try It + Recipe

Hey everyone!

I've started making cauliflower rice and I had to share my experience with you because it is AMAZING.

What is cauliflower rice you ask? It's grated and sauteed cauliflower which comes out remarkably similar to rice!

Why would anyone try such a thing? It's a strategy to keep the carbs down. Maybe you've taken the wheat products out of your life (congratulations) but you've replaced them with rice. Guess what? It's still carbs.

Cauliflower rice is a believable grain replacement in dishes like stir-fries, curries, soups, etc. It gives the right texture and another vegetable serving. To get really deep, it also contains sulphur-containing phytochemicals (also found in broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage and other veggies of the same family) that help prevent cancer. Seriously win-win.

 

Here's the recipe:

Serves 2-4

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp Bragg's Liquid Aminos or organic gluten-free Tamari (optional)

Directions:

  • Grate cauliflower into rice-sized pieces
  • Heat a large pan to medium heat with 1 tbsp coconut or olive oil
  • Sautee cauliflower until tender
  • Throw into any dish as a base or side! If I'm having it as a straight side, I'll put a little liquid aminos/tamari on for some flavour.

Let me know if you give it a try!
