Cauliflower "Rice" Two Ways

Cauliflower Rice is a great subsitution for regular rice without all the carbs! It can be used in place of rice in any dish.

Coarsely chop up the cauliflower. Fill the bottom of a large pot with a couple inches of water, bring to boil, then add a steamer basket(or metal strainer) with the veggies. Cover and let steam until on the oven until SUPER soft and mushy.If you don't have either a steamer basket or strainer, it's okay to put the veggies directly in the shallow water and drain when done.
Once the cauliflower is mushy, remove from the pot and put into a big bowl. Season with sea salt and pepper. Take a potato masher or just a fork, and mash up the cauliflower until it is the consistency of rice.

It is best to make alot at once and save it. I will cook up several heads at one time so I have it on hand for cooking other meals throughout the week.

"Fried" Cauliflower Rice

You will need:
Premade cauliflower rice
Diced or shredded carrots
Diced green onion

I know my measurements are very vague, but I just cook with what I have on hand. It's a hard dish to mess up! :)

With your already pre made cauliflower rice from above, heat some extra virgin olive oil in a skillet. Add minced garlic and cook slightly. Add chopped carrots and green onions. Let cook for a few minutes then beat a few eggs and add to skillet. Before they eggs fully cooked, add the cauliflower rice. Stir and cook until the cauliflower get a golden "fried" color as opposed to white. Great side dish to any meal.
