I have been so curious about cauliflower rice for a while. In all of my Pinterest and blog explorations, I’ve seen recipes with cauliflower rice for ages but I haven’t been bold enough to try it! Who even THOUGHT to grind cauliflower up into a dust, then stir fry it with a little olive oil and some spices?!
Our first try with cauliflower rice went really well. I’ll be making this again for sure! Once it’s all ground up, it retains flavor as well as rice does, if not better! You can grind the cauliflower on a box grater, but I used a food processor. It’s soft, fluffy, warm and way more satisfying than I imagined cauliflower rice to be.
We did a little Mexican-food type of assembly line that included our cauliflower rice, stir-fried peppers + onions, black beans, home-made guac, fresh corn, salsa and vegan sour cream. Han and Pete made salads. Actually it was like we had a mini vegan Chipotle assembly line in our kitchen and it was really exciting! You can add whatever it is you like to yours… chickpeas, jalapeños, spicy tofu or tempeh, pico… Yay for possibilities! Easy cleanup, satisfying, and non-vegan approved. What’s not to love?
Our inspiration came from The Roasted Root.
