Simple Cauliflower Rice


This just in: Cauliflower it good for you! While Kale and Broccoli are getting all the love these days, an often overlooked vegetable is Vitamin C rich Cauliflower. Not only is it nutritious, but you can “rice” to give the texture of traditional white rice except packed with micronutrients. This simple recipe is a great side to poultry, beef, and pork, and the amount of simple variations will keep this original even if it makes an appearance 3 times a week.

From our kitchen to yours, Bennett


1 head cauliflower
1 yellow onion, chopped
4 slices of bacon (optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil (use instead of bacon grease)
Sea salt and cracked pepper to taste


Use a food processor to rice the cauliflower and add to the mixture.  One trick that I like is using cheesecloth to get the remaining liquid out of the cauliflower, which keeps it from getting to mushy.
Sauté the yellow onion in 3-quart pan in olive oil.  Note: if you add bacon then cook the bacon first and set aside.  Use the rendered bacon fat to cook the onion
After about 5-7 minutes of sauté, add the rice and cook for about 10 minutes.
Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
