Garlic Cauliflower "Rice"

By abbeysue

Cauliflower offers a similar taste and texture as rice in this healthy, alternative dish.

Garlic Cauliflower
Ingredients
  • 1 head cauliflower

  • 1-2 cloves minced garlic

  • 1-2 teaspoons coconut oil

  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions
  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the stem off of the cauliflower, then break the cauliflower into small-ish florets (it will happen pretty naturally–they don’t need to be bite-sized or anything, just wherever they break naturally). Place the cauliflower pieces into a food processor fitted with a chopping blade or a heavy-duty blender (my Blendtec does the job). You’ll probably need to do it in batches. Using the pulse setting, chop the cauliflower until it reaches a rice-like consistency.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and garlic and cook until tender but not mushy (about 4-5 minutes). Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately. The chopped, uncooked cauliflower can be frozen for quick cooking in the future. Makes about 4 1-cup servings
