Cauliflower Rice
My Now  Love Affair with Rice (Cauliflower that is…)

“Hello Cauliflower!”  it’s nice of you to come and play Rice for me today”.  Yes, this versatile vegetable is now my
substitute for rice, mash potato and even Alfredo sauce.  Filipino dishes served best with garlic fried rice are now back on the menu along with some of my childhood favorites like Arroz a la Cubana (recipe posted on 8.31.2014) and the ever so popular Filipino Adobo and rice.  Paella, my signature dish, is no longer relegated to "special occasion" only
status -  recipe for that will be posted soon, but something the family can enjoy more often with cauliflower rice as a healthier and less filling, not to mention less carb alternative.

1 head cauliflower or 1 2 lb. bag of Cauliflower florets from Costco 
11/2  tablespoon coconut oil, melted
3/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper


1. Preheat oven to 425F.  Cover a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Break the cauliflower into florets, removing the stems. Place the florets in the food processor bowl and pulse until the cauliflower looks like rice.  If your food processor has a grater attachment, use this and feed the florets into the food processor instead.  This takes about 10 to 15 one-second pulses. You may need to do this in two batches to avoid
3.  Place the cauliflower rice in a large bowl, add the melted coconut oil, salt and pepper.  Toss
with two wooden spoons until the rice is coated with the oil. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet and roast until tender and beginning to get a few brown spots, about 2o minutes.
4.  Serve with anything that needs a lovely bed of rice or use as rice substitute for
fried rice, risotto and even paella (Those recipes to come later)

Life invites you to take risks. Those risks may or may not pay off while others inspire you to experience yourself with renewed enthusiasm.

Wow! This is really a healthy food. I'm not that a healthy living person that loves to eat vegetables and fruits. I'm just a normal person that loves to eat different kind of delicious food. For me personally I think that this is very delicious. I can see in the photo that you shared with us, this is a simple food yet you have a lot of benefits that you can receive. I'm glad that I found your blog post. I hope that you can share more next time.

This surely is a new way to enjoy a rice meal. I also love cauliflower, but this is the first time to learn that you can mix it with rice as well. I loved it and also my kids appreciated cauliflower in this way. Now I know how to make them eat their veggies. Thanks for sharing this.

Oh. I don't like rice at all, sorry. Can't try this recipe! Have you any recipes with meat?
