Cauliflower rice is an amazing addition to your culinary ideas: use it to replace rice with Asian curries and stir-fried, or in Italian risottos, or simply enjoy as a side dish with meat and steamed vegies. Serves 6

Ingredients

½ red onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp fresh basil, diced
1 cauliflower, cut into florets
1 egg
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp salt
1 Freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp coconut oil

Method

  1. Steam the cauliflower until soft but not mushy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cauliflower, onion, garlic and basil. Add the egg, coconut flour, salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Using a potato masher , mash the cauliflower until it resembles the consistency of rice.
  4. Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower mixture and sauté for 7 to 10 minutes, or until the onion is tender.
  5. Variation: Add extra vegetables to the mixture.
  6. Variation: Add your choice of meat, poultry, seafood or tofu.
