Paleo Dinner: Cauliflower Rice

One of the things that I will occasionally splurge on is rice. I love sushi and it’s not very fulfilling to me to just eat slices of raw fish. With that said, rice in a dish isn’t something that I’ve missed at all.

But when this recipe for takeout-inspired Orange Sesame Chicken darkened my kitchen, I knew I had to serve it with something like rice.

I’ve tried cauliflower mashed potatoes to no success, so I wasn’t all that optimistic about cauliflower “rice.” But while I wasn’t optimistic, I was hopeful.

And it turned out damn good.

So get out your food processor and get ready for the easiest and tastiest way to get add in a veggie!

cauliflower rice

prep time: 15 minutes cooking time: 17 minutes yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 head cauliflower trimmed (or save some time and buy the bag already trimmed from Costco)
  • 2 teaspoons EVOO
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced yellow onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
How to
  1. Get your food processor out and find the grating attachment. On low speed slowly feed the florets through the processor until  grated into “rice grains.”
    Hint: You can also use a cheese grater, but that’s way less fun.
  2. Heat the EVOO in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until almost translucent, about 5 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook until aromatic.
  3. Add in the riced cauliflower and cook for 5-7 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
  4. Add the chicken broth, and then cover and steam for 5 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
