One of the first Paleo tricks I learned was how to use the wonderful vegetable, Cauliflower, as a side dish or as a rice substitute. This is so very good although it seems a bit of a task at first to get it prepared. If you have a good blender or food processor, it becomes a snap. I use my Ninja Blender to chop my cauliflower into the needed rice-like consistency.
1 head cauliflower
2 TBS coconut or olive oil
Sea Salt, Garlic, Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Chopped peppers, onions, etc. as desired
1. Place the cauliflower into a food processor or powerful blender and pulse until the cauliflower has a grainy rice-like consistency. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2. Meanwhile heat a large sauté pan over low-medium heat and add the oil when hot (not too hot as oil can become rancid).
3. Sauté cauliflower, peppers, onions and any additional seasonings desired.
Serve as a side dish with Salmon, Chicken or even eggs. You can also use as rice and serve with a sauce.
