Cauliflower Rice

  1. Press garlic cloves and set aside for 10 minutes. While garlic is resting, add half of the cauliflower florets to a food processor fitted with a chopping blade. Pulse florets until they have a rice-like texture. Remove from blender and set aside. Pulse the remaining florets but be careful not to overprocess, as the cauliflower will become mush if it’s overprocessed.
  2. In a pot, heat coconut oil over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic and onion in pot until onion is translucent.
  3. Add cauliflower rice and ¼ cup water to pot; stir. Cover and steam cauliflower rice for 5–8 minutes. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, and fluff with a wooden spoon.
