Cauliflower “Rice”


 The cauliflower looks yellow because it’s that yellow kind of cauliflower. If you use the traditional white cauliflower it will look more like white rice. The taste however is just as good no matter what color you use.

This is perfect with protein when you want to feel like you’re having rice but you know you shouldn’t. It’s just as easy to make as rice and much more flavorful and healthy.

So let’s get to it! This is what you need:


Super simple. Then you want to undress the cauliflower while telling it that you love it so it doesn’t feel used.


Now you have naked cauliflower. Don’t make it feel awkward by staring. Just get to it!

Chop off the thick stem.

Then you want to cut off the little stems as well. Basically, cut off as much stem as you can.

 Now, if you have a food processor throw the cauliflower tops in and pulse until they look like little granules.

I don’t have a food processor so I just used a knife like our ancestors did.

 Once the cauliflower looks like the pictures above place on a lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with S&P to taste.

 Bake for 25-30 minutes until it looks like this. You can click on the pic to enlarge it. 


I had them with teriyaki chicken as a substitute for white rice. For the teriyaki chicken recipe click here. It tasted really good. Dare I say, better. Much more depth of flavor and totally guilt free. Please try making this!
