So… as you can see by the name, this cauliflower rice isn’t really rice at all.

However, if you are on a strict #paleo or #grainfree diet, cauliflower rice is a life saver.

Even if you’re not, it’s a fabulous low-carb side dish that everyone in my family loves.

I simply grind cauliflower in the food processor until it reaches the size of rice, then I toss it with olive oil and roast it.

Once roasted, the cauliflower rice is soft, tender, and fluffy…

Heck, it looks, feels, and even kind of tastes like rice. Who knew?!

The first few times I served this to my family, the kids were halfway through dinner before they realized it wasn’t real rice.

Pretty convincing.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large (2 small) head of cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Cut the cauliflower in half and remove the core and leaves. Roughly chop the cauliflower and place in the food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is small and fine like rice.
  2. Dump the cauliflower rice out onto a large rimmed baking sheet (If your baking sheet is average sized or small, use two.) Drizzle the olive oil over the top. Then mix with your hands and spread the cauliflower rice out into a thin layer. Sprinkle with salt.
  3. Roast in the oven for 5 minutes. Then stir and smooth out again. Roast, another 5 minutes. Serve warm.

NOTES: Sometimes I like to add a little curry, cumin, or chile powder to the cauliflower rice, depending on what I’m serving it with.
