Stir-Fried Cauliflower Rice

There are a few dishes, like curries, I don’t make as often as I would like because they require rice. And rice is something we try to eat in moderation. Enter stage right, cauliflower rice! You just have to trust me on this one. The thing we all love about rice is its texture more so than its flavor. And this is where this dish shines! It has a similar consistency, and therefore satisfying quality, as white rice. The stronger flavors of the vegetables detract from that of the cauliflower. It is much quicker to make than real rice and infinitely healthier also! Give it a go … I promise you will be as surprised as we were! And of course, you can add any vegetable you like. Soy sauce? scrambled egg? peas? bok choi? why not! Great on its own or as a side. Here we had it with Thai Green Curry (recipe coming up in my next post).

  • Print

Ingredients:
1 head of cauliflower (firm and organic preferably)
½ red bell pepper finely sliced into strips
2 salad onions finely sliced into strips
1 cup of bean sprouts
1 thumb sized price of fresh ginger
⅓ cup of grated carrots
½ salad onion to garnish
Dash of dark sesame oil
Soy sauce (optional)

This is just what I used in this instance. You can use more or less of any of these and of course, lots of other vegetables also.

Instructions:
Slice the cauliflower into chunks and remove the thickest part of the core. Some core is ok but cut it into smaller pieces).
Pulse in a food processor. You don’t want to press ON, only pulse. There is a fine line between cauliflower that resembles coarse breadcrumbs and watery mush.
Place the cauliflower crumbs into a glass dish and cook on full power in the microwave for 4 minutes. No need to cover.
Meanwhile, slice your vegetables.
Heat about 2 tbsp of sesame oil in a wok until just before it starts to smoke. Add the vegetable sand stir fry for a couple of minutes.
Add the cauliflower rice. Stir.
Place the ginger piece into a garlic press and squeeze out the juice. Stir.
Cook for a further minute and serve.
