Indian Spice Cauliflower Rice
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ head cauliflower cut into small florets
  • 1 yellow onion chopped into smaller
  • 1 red pepper chopped into smaller pieces
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro with more for garnish
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp salt (more if needed)
  • Chicken (I use my tandoori chicken which I've left a link for above).
  1. First in a large pan over medium high heat add your two tbsp of oil (I used olive oil, coconut would taste REALLY good), chopped onion and red pepper. Saute until onions are translucent and red pepper has softened. About 8 minutes.
  2. While the veggies are cooking, in a food processor or blender add your cauliflower (I use a blender so I only add about ½ at a time and remove to avoid any bits of cauliflower pureeing into a mashed potatoes). You'll want to blend/process until rice consistency is formed (see pictures), remove any larger chunks (however you don't HAVE to).
  3. Next add your cauliflower rice to the large pan with your onion/peppers. Turn heat down to medium-low. Mix and then cover until rice has softened. About half way through cooking time add your turmeric. Stir, then continue to cover and cook (total cooking time 15 minutes).
  4. Once finished cooking add your fresh cilantro, mix and Salt & Pepper to taste.
  5. *** If you are adding chicken, This is also when you would slice your chicken and stir in. Then salt & pepper to taste). I use my tandoori chicken recipe (since i had leftovers) and added some of the chicken fat as well. SO DELICIOUS.
