Cauliflower is an amazing vegetable that can take many shapes and forms, and makes an excellent substitute for potatoes, rice, and other starches that are off limits on the Paleo plan. You can use this anywhere you would serve rice. It makes a great addition to stir-fries or alongside fish or chicken. This is a basic version, but like rice, the mild flavor of cauliflower makes it a blank canvas for taking on other flavors. Feel free to experiment until you find something you love.

  • ½ head cauliflower.
  • 1 tablespoon olive or coconut oil.
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced.
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

Using a food processor or cheese grater, grate the cauliflower into pieces that are similar to the size of rice granules.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute.
Add the cauliflower and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked through. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
Serve immediately and use anywhere you would use plain rice.
