Recipe by Kristen Bailey
"This way of cooking cauliflower is an excellent substitute for most rice dishes for those looking to add more veggies and cut back on grain. Cauliflower is mild and is a great compliment to the Mediterranean flavors of lemon and mint. The recipe is both SCD and Paleo diet friendly. We served this underneath grilled lamb kabobs. It was a big hit!"

Loved this and my kids really thought it was rice! I was concerned, originally, that the rice would not "steam" just by putting it in a skillet, after shredding. But, much to my amazement, it did! I processed to rice size pieces and then added to skillet with a tablespoon + of sesame seed oil. Didn't have red peppers on hand, so chopped a few carrots and added that instead. Then, after the recommended 8-10 minutes or so, I added in half of a standard tomato that I chopped. Finally, I had roasted a chicken and had leftover lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper flavored juices and added that instead of recommend juices. Tasted amazing and can see this being amazing with ANY juices/spices/combos! I also added in a bit of fresh chopped cilantro, just prior to serving, for an herb and and b/c it was in my roasted chicken recipe as well. Overall, was VERY pleased with taste, texture and feel of this recipe!
Delicious and filling! I felt super energized by all the veggies, not stuffed like you feel from a whole lot of carby rice. The cauliflower base could work for all types of flavors: Asian, Mexican, anything depending on whatever spices you choose. It could definitely replace a potato side dish as well. For a less tart flavor and even more green, try using less lemon juice and adding some parsley.
It was wonderful we really enjoyed it and was a nice change of pace for the paleo diet
Other than using chopped regular tomato instead of cherry, followed recipe exactly. It is delicious! My new "go to" when we get cauliflower in the CSA box.
Super easy. I like to use it just as I would use any other rice dish. Helps with those carb cravings!
