Ingredients
1 medium (720 g/1.6 lb) cauliflower
2 tablespoons (30 g/1.1 oz) ghee or other healthy cooking fat
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
MASALA CAULI-RICE:
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
LEMON & HERB CAULI-RICE:
2 tablespoons (8 g/0.3 oz) fresh herbs such as basil, oregano, thyme, and parsley
1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
SPANISH CAULI-RICE:
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons (30 g/1.1 oz) tomato paste

Instructions

Run the cauliflower florets through a hand grater or food processor with a grating blade. Pulse until the florets resemble grains of rice. (See instructions shown here.)
Grease a large saucepan with ghee and add all the aromatics for the preferred cauli-rice recipe: Masala, Lemon & Herb, or Spanish. Mix and cook over medium-low heat for up to 1 minute. Add the cauliflower rice and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper, and serve with slow-cooked meat and sauce. To store, let it cool and place in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 5 days.
