Basmati Cauliflower Rice

This rice is low carb, but really delicious with an Indian style dish without the guilt of regular rice.


1 head cauliflower, finely riced (I use a food processor)
Coconut cream
Cardamom
Cumin
Cayenne (sparingly)
Sea salt
Garlic granules
Onion powder

We use a canned coconut cream that is all natural. You want the cream so that it's thicker than the usual coconut milk, but use what you have. You only really need a little. Maybe half a can or so for a full head.

The rest of the seasonings are to taste.

Cook the riced cauliflower, uncovered in a glass dish in the microwave for about 5 minutes. (or in the oven if you have the time).

Stir and add the cream and seasonings.

Cook for another 5 minutes, uncovered.

Stir and have a taste. Adjust seasonings as desired.

Cook for another 5 minutes.

Stir and have another taste. If you feel it's soft enough, then enjoy.

You may cook for another 5 minutes to get desired tenderness. 

Serve with your favorite Indian dish.

Cauliflower is a lot more filling than rice, so use about half as much per serving as you would have for rice.
