Cauliflower Rice [Grain-free]

Hello my fellow travellers,

I know what you must be thinking, “what in the world is cauliflower rice?!?”

Well, its a delicious, grain-free substitute for rice. You can eat anything with this rice: baked chicken, meatballs, or even spinach curry.


I snagged this recipe from Nom Nom Paleo but adapted the spices to my liking. I essentially replaced all the spices the recipe used with what I had on hand.


Definitely something new in my kitchen but worth a try since its super easy!


1 cauliflower head, large

1 tbsp coconut oil

1-2 tsp sea salt

1 small onion, chopped

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp red chilli powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp cumin powder


  1. Cut cauliflower into florets and throw into a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower resembles small rice grains.
  2. Fry onions and garlic in coconut oil in a skillet/large pan until translucent and then add cauliflower. Add all the spices and mix well.
  3. Cover the pan and cook the cauliflower for 5-10 minutes until softened.
  4. Serve hot with sauteed vegetables, chicken, or whatever you have on hand.
