This “rice” is a great option for someone wanting to reduce carbs, eat gluten-free or Paleo, or just to change it up and try something different! A great price for cauliflower is $0.75/lb or less. I found lots of recipes to try, but liked the idea of the sauted onion and pan-cooked cauliflower in this recipe from nom nom paleo.
Finely chop onion. (Easy and quick in a food processor. Then you can rinse the processor and use it for cauliflower too.)
Remove leaves, rinse, core, and chop the cauliflower into evenly-sized florets.
Chop the cauliflower florets until the size of couscous or rice grains by pulsing in a food processor or grating. (I used a food processor, but needed to do 2 batches so the "grains" did not get too small.)
Heat butter and/or oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until translucent and softened. Then add the cauliflower and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes, until cauliflower is softened. Then season to taste and serve.
Season lightly with salt and pepper if serving as part of a flavorful dish with sauce. More seasoning options: seasoning salt, Montreal Steak seasoning, Lemon Pepper, Aleppo chile finishing salt, Thai seasoning, etc. Try adding green onion, red peppers, chicken pieces, or scrambled egg!
