Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower Rice

Inspired by Kim Lyon’s Fast-Acting Summer Detox Menus (thanks Mom!)

This is a fantastic alternative to rice. It makes your curries feel like curry rather than stew. We’ve also used it in place of pasta and as a side on its own. Cauliflower is said to prevent cancer (and increase overall health) by supporting three important systems in your body: the detox system, the antioxidant system, and the inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system. Reducing inflammation has changed the way my body functions: increased my energy, regulated my sleep patterns and elevated my mood. Thanks cruciferous vegetables!

  • 1/2 – 1 head cauliflower, sliced for the food processor (you can juice the green parts)
  • 1 t olive oil (optional)
  • herbs to taste (optional)
  • salt to taste (optional)

In a food processor, use the grater-blade or pulse the cauliflower until it looks like rice. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 2-5 minutes (do not add water). Let rest for a minute or so and enjoy with your favorite sauce or with olive oil, herbs and seasoning!
