Cauliflower Rice Rice Baby

Stop collaborate and listen, rice is back with a brand new invention… cauliflower!

Well it’s not entirely new as it’s been done before, so not brand new at all. BUT any chance to sing ice ice baby is always ok. Ask my husband, he knows all the words and will argue with you that this is undoubtedly the best song of all time… he’s so gangsta.

Simple and effective is what this is. A great substitute for rice.

What you need to fill the dance floor with cauliflower rice rice baby:


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 a white/brown onion diced
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 1/2 lime

Yo, Let’s kick it

Cut the cauliflower into florets and either food process (by pulsing) until processed into rice size chunks, or grate the cauliflower or chop into the right size.


Then heat up the cocount oil in a pan over medium heat add garlic and onion and saute until fragrant. Add cauliflower and lime zest saute for a few minutes until slightly tender. Add the lime juice, then pop a lid on the fry pan for a few minutes. Not too long as “rice” will go gluggy.

Season with salt and pepper and serve up with extra lime wedges if you like.

Word to your mother.

You can change the flavours of the cauliflower rice or just have it plain. Experiment and try with different spices such as saffron.
