This simple side uses cauliflower as a stand-in for rice, but after tasting this substitution, you may become a cauliflower convert!

Ingredients

4
cups cauliflower florets
2
tablespoons olive oil
1/2
cup chopped green onions (8 medium)
1/2
teaspoon sea salt flakes
1/4
cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1
tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Directions

  • 1 In food processor, place 1 cup of the cauliflower. Cover, and pulse until coarsely ground to the size of grains of rice. Transfer to large bowl; repeat in three more batches with remaining cauliflower. There should be about 3 1/2 cups processed cauliflower.
  • 2 Place 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, then add green onions and salt. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until green onions soften. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the cauliflower; toss to coat. Cook 4 to 6 minutes or until lightly toasted and dried out.
  • 3 Add chicken broth. Heat to simmer until all liquid evaporates. Stir in parsley and thyme.
Tips  

Be careful not to over-process the raw cauliflower in the food processor. You'll end up with more of a couscous than a rice if you take it too far.

Experiment with different flavors and herbs based on what you're serving with the cauliflower. For example, try green onions and cilantro when serving with Mexican cuisine.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
