Delicious Cauliflower Rice

I should start by saying that absolutely all credit for this recipe goes to The Londoner. I saw this recipe on her blog months ago and I've been meaning to try it ever since. Well a couple of weeks ago I tried it for the first time and I can confirm its good. Really good. 


I don't like cauliflower whatsoever but this doesn't taste like cauliflower in the slightest. It tastes just like rice. This particular recipe tastes like delicious egg fried rice, its full of flavour and seriously filling. I tweaked the recipe a little bit by skipping the coconut oil and peanuts (simply because I didn't have any in the cupboards) and instead of serving with prawns I served it with a baked salmon fillet. 

This is a really great healthy, low carb alternative to rice. I cant wait to try out other cauliflower rice recipes and I also want to give cauliflower "pizza bases" a try too. 

Who knew you could do so much with cauliflower? To make this scrumptious recipe you will need:

2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp coconut oil (I didn't use this)
2 crushed garlic cloves
2 chopped chillies 
2 spring onions chopped
1 cauliflower
handful of chopped coriander
2 eggs
2 tbsp soy sauce
handful chopped peanuts (I didn't add these)

Remove leaves from your cauliflower and chop into little trees
Grate these onto a tea towel using the 'normal' side of your grater (you could also use a food processor)
Once you have your 'rice' on your tea towel wring out any excess moisture over the sink 
Heat your wok/frying pan and add your oils. Once these are hot add your garlic and cook until lightly browned
Add your chillies next followed by your 'rice' and stir well
After about a minute stir in your spring onions and 2 tbsp soy sauce
At this point if you were using prawns add them in now
After a minute or so make a well in the middle of your pan and crack your egg into it. Allow it to fry a little bit and then once its starting to look cooked break it up and stir it through your cauliflower rice 
Repeat this again for the other egg and thats it. Serve with a sprinkle of fresh coriander, peanuts and if you fancy it a little sweet chilli sauce.

As I said I didn't use prawns and instead served with salmon and a glug of sweet chilli sauce and it was still totally yummy. This is now a weekly staple in our house and I've been telling all of my friends about it. Give it a go - you wont regret it :)
