{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

I get really excited about Asian cuisine. I have no idea where it stems from since I have zero roots in this culture, but I just adore the food!

From General Tso’s and Sweet & Sour dishes to Thai coconut and peanut sauce meals I think I could have it every day!

While our household tolerates a long-grain white rice fine, it is a great idea to rotate food around so our guts get plenty of variety.

I also like to train my girls’ palates young for a multitude of different tastes and textures. Cauliflower rice is a great, grain-free alternative to white rice, and it goes so great with any of your Asian meals.

I spent a period of time off grains while healing my gut and feel like I perfected the process of cauli rice to my standard – I want it to feel and taste like rice!

Stir-frying it is the way to go, and you can choose the texture you like! The cook time is super fast. I like a “bite” to my cauli rice, just like I prefer my rice to have, so just about 5 or so minutes is all I need. If you like a softer feel you won’t need any longer than 10 minutes for sure.

The process goes so fast – pulse in a processor or chop until it is the size of rice and fry it up in a friendly fat of your choosing.

As a prepping note, you can pulse or chop your cauli rice ahead of time to save a step if you need to get dinner on the table quick. Sometimes I just pulse it right when I get it out of the grocery bag so it’s done. I can scoop out what I need to fry up when I want, and it is done quickly – the girls love it as a quick side to their lunch with a pat of butter and some sea salt.

How to Make Perfect Cauliflower Rice :: A Grain-Free Alternative To Rice

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Total Time: 11 minutes

While our household tolerates a long-grain white rice fine, it is a great idea to rotate food around so our guts get plenty of variety. Cauliflower rice is a great, grain-free alternative to white rice, and it goes so great with any of your Asian meals.

Ingredients

  • 1 head organic cauliflower
  • ¼ cup friendly fat to cook in (butter, coconut oil, etc.)
  • Few pinches of sea salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Pulse your cauliflower in a processor, or chop your cauliflower into rice sized pieces.
  2. Cook the chopped cauliflower in melted friendly fat of choosing on medium high heat. Keep it moving, stirring here and there to keep it light and fluffy like rice. You will cook around 5-6 minutes if you want a “bite” to it, and around 10 minutes if you want it softer. Much longer than this and it will start getting mushy – just keep trying it as you go along so you can find the texture you like.
  3. Season to taste.
