Coconut Cauliflower Rice

by March 8, 2017

Coconut Cauliflower Rice #paleo #glutenfree #veganBits of cauliflower enveloped in a toasted coconut milk and cardamom sauce. Coconut “rice” without the grains or starch. My girl Melissa from Clothes Make the Girl just launched her new cookbook, Well Fed 2 – a collection of recipes for people who love to eat. People who love to eat? That’s ME! (And I know that’s you, too) I received a copy in the mail a couple of weeks ago and honest to goodness, I couldn’t decide which recipe to make first. Mustard-Garlic Brussels Sprouts, Sunrise Scramble, Plantain Nachos… ah, the choices?! Coconut Cauliflower Rice #paleo #glutenfree #vegan In the end, I went with the recipe that made me the MOST skeptical. Coconut Cauliflower Rice. Sounds a little crazy, don’t it? I assure you, this recipe is nothing short of brilliant! Kevin and I couldn’t stop eating it.

Bits of cauliflower enveloped in a toasted coconut milk and cardamom sauce. Coconut "rice" without the grains or starch.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Break the cauliflower into florets. Using a cheese grater, grate the cauliflower. Or, if you have a food processor, add florets to the bowl of your food processor and pulse until cauliflower looks like rice. About 10-15 seconds of pulsing.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the coconut oil, melt, then add the onion. Saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the cardamom and stir with a wooden spoon until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the cauliflower and coconut milk, stirring to combine. Saute the cauliflower for about 10-12 minutes until the coconut milk is adsorbed.
  4. The consistency will be a little off for awhile, but it will come together as the cauliflower dries out a bit and brown specks begin to appear.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, serve!
Notes
Coconut milk: you could use full-fat coconut milk in this recipe, I just chose not to.

You can make it savory (like above) OR sweet by adding in a touch of cinnamon and cardamom and omitting the onion, salt & pepper. The sweet version is delicious with a touch of maple syrup and bits of fresh apple. I think I’ll have to make it again, take pictures of it and share it with you. Coconut Cauliflower Rice #paleo #glutenfree #vegan I would love to know (as I can’t be the only one!)… What recent recipe were you skeptical of that totally surprised you? Are you familiar with Melissa from Clothes Make the Girl? Her blog is filled with gluten-free, grain-free goodness. Highly recommend checking her out. std-Full-Banner-468x60.001
