GOT RICE???

Category: Foods, Gluten-Free
23 February 2010, Comments: 20

As long as I could remember, white rice has always been a staple that accompanied all main courses… that was until Crossfit came around.  In order to perform better, I knew I had to eat better.  Adios white rice, hello brown rice.  Right?  Wrong.  Although rice is gluten free, it’s not the carbohydrate that Paleo folk choose to consume.  Until now. I bring you the perfect substitute for any dish that can be eaten rice.  Its versatility allows you to eat it with just about everything. Try it with your favorite Paleo Curry Dish or even with a piece of Grilled Salmon.

 

What is it? Drum roll please….. Cauliflower Rice!

 

Here is the Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe:

1 medium head cauliflower

1 green onion

1 large egg (optional: use only the egg whites) whisked

1 table spoon garlic

1 table spoon olive oil

*Optional: half cup meat of choice (chicken apple sausage is my personal favorite)

Dash of salt & pepper

___________________

 

1. Finely chop cauliflower (or use a food processor)

2. Microwave the dice cauliflower for about 3 minutes or until it gets soft.

3. Warm pan and add a bit of olive oil.

4. Add finely chopped garlic, green onions, and meat of choice (*optional) to the hot pan.

5. Add whisked egg white into the hot pan.

6. Quickly add the cauliflower before the egg is cooked all the way and stir. This allows the egg to mix with the cauliflower for a nice flavor.

7. Once the Cauliflower and the egg are well mixed and start getting brown add salt, pepper, and other spices of choice.

 

I had Cauliflower Fried Rice w/ 2 – Cage Free Fried Eggs, and some Chicken Apple Sausage.

 

How would you eat your Cauliflower Rice? Post to comments…

BUON APPETIT!

    I make mashed potatoes with ghee butter using cauiflower for my gluten-casein free daughter. She can’t tell the difference..;o)

    That sounds delicious! If you don’t mind sharing your recipe w/ us I would definitely like to try it.
    Does the ghee butter give your “potatoes” an interesting texture?

    Did anyone get an opportunity to try this? Let me know what you thought.
    Cheers!

    I absolutely love cauliflower rice so much so that I have my own recipe on my blog at Feasting on Fitness. Yours sounds delicious! I love fried rice and often miss it. I have added wheat-free Tamari sauce (more paleo-friendly soy sauce) to mine with success. Ginger also gives it a nice flavor. I’ll have to try out the microwave step next time. I usually just add the cauliflower to the skillet and let it soften/cook. Does the microwave change the texture or add something that I might be missing by straight cooking it? I am curious.
    Keep up the awesome posts! I really enjoy them and appreciate your array of helpful topics! Thanks!

    Hey Kristy!
    Thanks for your response! I use the microwave to kind of soften the cauliflower a bit, to make it easier to just dice the HECK out of the cauliflower. I guess you could say that this step, will help give the Cauliflower “Rice” a softer texture similar to that of white rice. If you like your rice a little chewier like brown rice, feel free to skip the microwave step.
    I will have to try the Tamari sauce, I just heard that the flavor was way too strong. =)
