Cauliflower Rice (makes 4 servings)
1 medium head cauliflower
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 medium onion, diced (about 1/4 cup)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons coconut aminos (soy sauce alternative)
Juice of 1 lemon
Sea salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
1. Break cauliflower into florets and place in food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower looks like rice (about 10 seconds). NOTE: You may need to do this in two batches to avoid overcrowding (which leads to mush). 2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add coconut oil and allow to melt. Toss the onion and garlic into the pan, stir with a wooden spoon for one minute. Add cauliflower and stir.
3. Add in egg while stirring. Add remaining ingredients and sauté “rice” for 5-7 minutes until cooked.
4. Serve with ground chicken, shrimp, steamed vegetables, Salmon or grass fed beef
*Make it vegan by leaving egg out. Spice it up with cilantro, curry, ponzu, hot sauce or guacamole.
