Rice is a great side for many meals – but why have the grain rice, when you can have a far more nutritious Paleo alternative? This recipe is quick and easy and can be varied by using different herbs and spices. You can also stir in an egg whilst cooking, to make an egg fried rice; or make it a dish in it’s own right by adding more vegetables such as capsicum (bell peppers) and zucchini.
This rice is so good, I’ve served it up many times without people even realising it isn’t “normal” rice!
- Half a cauliflower
- Half an onion
- Coconut oil
- Pinch cumin
- Pinch paprika
- Pinch cayenne pepper
- Sea salt to taste
Grate the cauliflower florets by hand, or in a food processor, until the consistency resembles rice.
Dice the onion into small pieces and fry in olive oil over a medium heat
Once the onion starts to turn golden add the grated cauliflower and spices and stir for a few moments ensuring it doesn’t burn. Add more oil if necessary.
Serve and enjoy! You can also make extra to store in the fridge, ready to be reheated with dinner.
