Dreamy Cauli Rice

IMO, the cauliflower rice you get in a packet has given cauli rice a pretty bad rep. It tastes like shit and anyone who says otherwise is lying or sponsored by them (so still lying).

I don't really have any meals without carbs so this is never a sub for carbohydrates for me (as it seems to be and can be for a lot of people). Instead, I just view it as a more interesting and delicious way to enjoy cauliflower as an accompaniment to my main meal.

So if you've been put off cauli rice either due to the packets you can buy in the shops or if you've had it in a restaurant and it was equally bad (as I also have) then give this easy dish a whirl and I promise you it'll change your views on it!

INGREDIENTS (serves 2)

  • 1/2 head raw cauliflower 
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed 
  • 1/2 cup chicken bone broth (can sub for a chicken or veggie stock)
  • large handful of kale 
  • sprinkle of chilli powder
  • good grind of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos (can sub for tamari, liquid aminos or soy sauce) 
  • handful of coriander, chopped
  • 1 tsp coconut oil for cooking


1. Roughly chop up cauliflower and then place into a food processor

2. Process the cauliflower until it resembles small, rice like pieces

3. Heat the coconut oil in the pan and then add the onion and garlic

4. Sauté until soft and then add the cauliflower rice and bone broth (or stock)

5. Season with chilli and pepper and then allow the cauliflower to cook down for about 5 minutes

6. When nearing the end of cooking, add the kale and coconut aminos and cook for another 2 minutes

7. Once cooked, take off the heat and stir through the chopped coriander

8. Enjoy!
