Ali Eisenach shares how to make the perfect Cauliflower Rice.
Cauliflower Rice
1 head cauliflower
1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
salt and pepper to taste and herbs, and/or vegetables of your choice (see variation ideas below)*

Wash, remove core and leaves, trim, and coarsely chop the cauliflower. Also make sure there are no brown or black spots on it. If so, remove with a paring knife. Chop the fresh cauliflower into small florets or pieces small enough to fit into the food processor. Make sure that the cauliflower pieces are completely dried before using. Finely pulse until the size of rice. Heat oil in a frying pan, add cauliflower and cook 5 minutes or until softened but still a little crunchy. Season with your favorite spices.

Change things up with one of the variations below.

Curried Cauliflower Rice: Add 1 tablespoon turmeric or curry powder.

Herbed Rice: Add 1/4 cup of fresh basil, parsley, cilantro, green onion, and/or other herbs of your choice.

Chinese Fried Rice: After frying the cauliflower rice, push the cauliflower to one side of the pan. Pour in one (1) beaten egg into the empty part of the pan and lightly scramble the egg. Then mix the scrambled egg and cauliflower “rice” together. If desired, add a little soy sauce to the mixture.

Rice Salad: After frying and cooling, mix in some chopped cucumbers and tomatoes. Season lightly with some oil and vinegar.

Spanish Rice: After cooking the cauliflower, add an 8-ounce can of chopped tomatoes and a little hot sauce (to taste). Can also add some sautéed diced green pepper and garlic.

Vegetable Rice: Add your favorite diced vegetable; sauté with the onions.

Lemon Rice: Add some lemon zest and lemon juice

Cilantro lime rice : add chopped cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime
