Cauliflower “Rice”

Serves 4 –  Advanced and Core Plan

For those of you following the Advanced Plan or just trying to avoid grains, this is a terrific rice substitute.  Cauliflower wouldn’t be happy to be called a substitute because it stands on it’s own as a tasty satisfying dish on it’s own.

1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
sea salt
black pepper
butter
grated parmesan cheese, optional
any combination of herbs, optional

Transfer the cauliflower to a blender and cover with filtered water.  (This is called wet-chopping.  It is best done with a Vita-Mix or other blender that drives the food downward).  Pulse the blender several times to get the desired consistency.  (It should look like thick rice).  It may take a few pulses.

Tranfer the cauliflower and water to a saucepan and boil to desired doneness.  It will still have more crunch than regular rice.  Be careful not to overcook the cauliflower.

Drain the cauliflower in a strainer and season with sea salt, pepper, butter, and parmesan cheese and herbs if desired.
