Simple Cauliflower Rice




Yield 6 servings

Looking for a delicious, simple, Whole30-friendly, Paleo alternative to white rice? Make my simple cauliflower rice recipe!



  1. Grab your cauliflower florets and throw them into a  food processor fitted with the chopping blade.
  2. Pulse the contents until the cauliflower resembles couscous or rice grains. (You skip steps 1 & 2 if you have a bag of riced cauliflower.)
  3. Heat a 12-inch pan over medium heat until hot. Add your favorite cooking fat and when it's shimmering, toss in the onions. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are translucent.
  4. When the onions are softened, dump in the riced cauliflower and stir well to distribute the fat and onions.
  5. Season the “rice” with some salt, pepper, and Aleppo pepper (if using).
  6. Cover the skillet and cook the cauliflower for 5-10 minutes or until softened. Make sure the rice doesn't get mushy! Taste for seasoning and adjust with additional salt and pepper if needed.
  7. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to a week.
