Cauliflower “Rice” Pilaf

Call me crazy but I’m not a fan of Cauliflower Rice to be honest with you – ONLY because it’s not rice.  I just love rice so much that when someone says “OMG it’s JUST LIKE RICE” I picture this person who has been dieting so long they’ve gone insane.  It’s not like rice lady, you’re just in some major denial.

In saying that, eating veges instead of rice in the odd meal is a great idea.  It’s a no-brainer, we know we need to increase our vegetable intake so let’s “rice” that cauliflower up.


1 Head of Cauliflower
1 Red Onion, Chopped Finely
2 Cups of Veges, Your Choice
1/2 Cup Chicken Stock
2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed
Tumeric, 1Tbsp
Cumin, 1tsp
Coriander, 1tsp
A couple of Bay Leaves

Salt & Pepper


Truthfully, you can really do whatever spices take your fancy here.

Either grate your Cauliflower or chuck it in the Food Processor & process the *bleep* out of it, until it resembles rice.

Grab a frying pan, set to a medium heat and add a little oil. Add the red onion, garlic and spices. Saute for about 3 mins.

Add your Cauliflower & stir.

Pour in your lovely chicken stock, salt & pepper and keep stirring.

Have a little taste & add more spices if you desire. Keep tasting until the cauliflower tastes like it’s cooked through.

(Will have to write up the recipe for the beef curry accompanying this!)
