Cauliflower. What a versatile little veg in the Paleo regime. This rice is a fantastic side dish to stir frys and curries and does the job of normal rice, being both filling and a great way to soak up the yummy sauce of your main dish. Sooooo good.
Coconut Cauliflower Rice
Break the cauliflower up into florets. Whizz the raw florets up in your food processor for a matter of seconds to break them up into rice-like pieces (you may need to do this in 3 or 4 batches). Just a tip, don’t over whizz them as they will break down too much and get a bit wet.
Heat the oil over a medium to high heat in a large pan.
Add the diced onion and cook for a few minutes until softened.
Add the cauliflower and stir well, coating it in the oil.
Keep stirring and frying off the cauliflower for 5 minutes or so.
Add the coconut milk and mix through. Don’t worry if it seems a bit liquidy as it will dry out as you keep cooking.
Add the shredded coconut and salt and pepper, combining well. Cook for a few more minutes and you’re done (about 12 minutes from start to finish
