Mexi "Cauli" Rice

If you're looking for a great alternative to rice and all the starch in it, try out this recipe to complement some main dishes. Thanks to Healthy Living How To for the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Head Cauliflower
  • 1/4 Medium Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Can Organic Chopped Tomatoes, Drained
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil or Pastured Lard
  • 1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt

Directions

1. "Rice" Cauliflower. 

  • Two methods I've used with success; using a box grater and a high-powered blender like the Vitamix.
    • Using a box grater, grate the head of cauliflower to the stems, into rice. 
    • In the Vitamix, chop cauliflower, add florets to canister, add enough water to float off blade and pulse 3-4 times on high. Drain.

2. Add all ingredients in cast iron skillet and cook on medium-high, stirring frequently until rice is soft.

3. Turn up heat to high, continue to stirring, to give rice a little color. About 3 minutes.
