Cauliflower Rice (oil-free)

Have you tried Cauliflower Rice yet? Don’t be scared! I know it sounds weird but it’s actually easy to make and tastes great.

I don’t shy away from carbs, but once in awhile I like to take a break from grains. Just eating vegetables and fruits for a few days resets my digestive system and gives me a boost of optimal nutrition.

A low-carb, whole foods, plant-based “rice.” Perfect as a side dish or with curries and stir fries.

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • ½ teaspoon mustard seeds (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ lemon, juiced

Directions

  1. Food process the cauliflower in batches, pulsing into a cous-cous like consistency.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the onions and optional mustard seeds in water, covered, on medium-high for 10 minutes, until translucent.
  3. Add the cauliflower and salt, stirring. Reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook 3-5 minutes, until tender.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice, and serve warm.

At just 25 calories per 100g (compared with about 140 calories per 100g cooked white rice), this grain-free dish is everyone’s new favorite rice alternative.

My version is oil-free to boot! After all, if you’re going to eat healthy, do it right!
