Cauliflower “Rice”

Cauliflower Rice

Throughout my family’s endless holiday season, I have admittedly gained a little weight which prompted a suggestion from my now increasingly thinner friends to substitute some of my favorite carby sides, like pasta and rice, with cauliflower “rice” to lighten my load. Cauliflower “rice” is the new rage and now that it’s entered my house I understand why. And let me tell you, once you make it you will be hooked!

Ingredients

1/2 head of cauliflower, core removed and florets grated or chopped fine
1/2 onion, finely diced
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper

Directions

Set your rice cooker to Saute-Then-Simmer. Heat butter and olive oil until hot.

Add onion and cook for five minutes, or until soft. Add cauliflower and cook for an additional five minutes.

Add seasonings to your liking and serve.
