Description

Cauliflower rice is a great substitution for regular rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 head Cauliflower
  • 1 whole Red Pepper
  • 1 whole Yellow Pepper
  • ½ whole Onion
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoning Of Choice (I Use Mrs. Dash Table Blend)

Preparation

Chop the cauliflower head into chunks. Place the cauliflower in a microwave-safe dish with 2 cups of water and cook for about 7 minutes. It doesn’t need to be fully cooked. Using a blender, chop the cauliflower pieces into finer pieces, resembling grains of rice.

Cut the red pepper, yellow pepper and onion and mince the garlic. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and saute the onion, peppers and garlic until softened, about 10 minutes.

Add the chopped cauliflower to the saucepan. Add the chicken stock to the mixture and then the salt and seasoning of choice. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes uncovered until the cauliflower is softer (but not mushy.) Serve hot with your meal.

I’m SUCH a fan of replacing rice with cauliflower, but two questions: first, the 2 cups of chicken broth never really absorbed. Should I have drained this off after cooking? And secondly: I’m not having any luck chopping the cauliflower up into “rice-sized bites” in my food processor – either raw, or semi-cooked. Any suggestions? THANKS!

Great flavor, super low-carb side. Just ended up a little watery from the chicken broth.
