This cauliflower rice recipe is the perfect blend of garlic and butter. It really has a similar texture to rice but it only contains the healthy types of carbs! You won’t feel bloated, and it’s a good side dish to go with any meal! Whether you’re cooking up grilled salmon, or even a chicken stir-fry, use this in place of the rice!
I use cauliflower rice whenever a recipe calls for rice because I like to eat healthy and stay away from heavy carbs or starchy foods. White rice is really delicious but it’s not that great for you in large quantities, so I go with this recipe over any rice side dish, any day!
The ingredients are so simple, and of course salt and pepper to taste! All you have to do is toss the butter into a hot nonstick skillet, followed by the garlic and let brown, add the cauliflower and cook for about 5 minutes! Season to taste with whatever you’d like; salt, pepper, smoked paprika, chipotle, paella seasoning, soy sauce…and that’s it! I stuck to salt, pepper, butter and garlic.
I also topped this one with chopped cilantro and green onions and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds because I paired it with a Hoisin garlic skirt steak! Enjoy!
Cauliflower is so versatile which is why I love it so much! You can make cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza crust, and a lot more. Give this cauliflower rice recipe a shot and add any flavors to it that you want! I went with garlic and butter as a simple, go-to recipe, but the flavor options are as endless as your imagination can take you. Throw in some pesto or add a little balsamic vinegar and basil. Either way, you’ll love cauliflower rice as your new go-to side dish recipe.
