As Mike and I embark on this whole “No Grain” journey we are trying to think out of the box a little to keep our dinner plate satisfying. I have cooked with cauliflower before , but I must say I have never actually made cauliflower rice.

I think to actually call it rice is a bit of a stretch. I do not really care what you call it,  it is very tasty and satisfying. The bonus was it was kind of fun to make. I wish I would have snapped a picture of more of the prep work because Mike was the man in the kitchen making this dish. He thought it was fun using our little food processor. I love it when Mike helps out in the kitchen. I am usually the cook and he is the dishwasher guy.

Here is the recipe we used to make cauliflower rice.

  • 2 Heads of Organic Cauliflower
  • 2 Tbs of Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup of Diced Onion
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • 2 Diced Large Zucchinis
  • 1 Cup of Frozen Spinach

*You can basically add anything you want into this recipe. You can add ground meat, any vegetable you have on hand, seafood, tomato sauce. Etc…….)

Cooking Procedure

  1. Rinse cauliflower heads under cool water and pat dry.
  2. Using a cheese grater, grate the cauliflower to a coarse texture (approximately the size of rice grains). Using a food processor to pulse the cauliflower to desired texture works as well. This is the way Mike did it and I think the best way.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  4. Sauté the onion and garlic for 3–4 minutes, or until the onion is relatively translucent.
  5. Add in the cauliflower rice and other ingredients you have picked out.
  6. Continue to sauté for 5-10 minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
