Cauliflower Rice

Ah. The one thing we can’t do without. Rice.

When big spoon and I found out about this rice substitute, we looked at each other and realized, yup, maybe we CAN go paleo. This is probably the Paleo dish Vivian and I have the most experience making. This dish is like the spaghetti to our meatball, or the vanilla ice cream to our apple pie (which I haven’t had in forever…sigh). Rice has been a staple food to our lives, and now…cauliflower rice is the staple to our Paleo lives.

This dish is quite simple to make. Take a head of cauliflower and cut them into manageable pieces for your food processor. Then pulse it until its the consistency of long grain rice. Melt some coconut oil or butter onto a pan. If you’d like, throw in some minced garlic first. Then throw in the “rice” and cook over medium til the desired texture is obtained. Depending on the main dish, I also like to chop some cilantro and mix it in.

Note: when making this, you will realize why Vivian and I make our cauliflower rice for the whole week…because it gets EVERYWHERE. I’ve never had to sweep after cooking, but this never fails to bring the broom and dustpan out.

I present to you, rice.
