Coconut Cauliflower Turmeric Rice 

Print Friendly 

Description:
One of the best things about Winter is the food, hands down. After a summer of grillin' and chillin', I am feeling a strong call from my stove - it's lonely, it needs some loving. Cauliflower rice totally rocks as an alternative to grains, but what if we could kick it up a notch, maybe give it a little Indian/Thai flavor so that is pairs perfectly with curried chicken and veggies? The answer lies below (and it's delicious).

In addition to being a super low-carb version of a pantry staple, cauliflower is packed with Fiber, Vitamin C, Magnesium, and Vitamin B-6. Even though coconut milk and coconut oil are high in fat, it's the best kind of fat out there. Also, coconut has a plethora of health and beauty benefits including a slimmer waistline, shinier hair, and clear, luminous skin. As a bonus, the cardamom in this dish has detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties.


Ingredients:
1 medium cauliflower
1 finely diced shallot
½ tablespoon coconut oil
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon ground Turmeric
¾ cup lite coconut milk
sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Directions:
Chop the cauliflower into florets. Add to food processor/Vitamix and pulse until cauliflower looks like rice. About 10-15 seconds of pulsing.
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the coconut oil, melt, then add the onion. Saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the cardamom, turmeric and stir with a wooden spoon until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the cauliflower and coconut milk, stirring to combine. Saute the cauliflower for about 10-12 minutes until the coconut milk is adsorbed.
Season with salt and pepper, serve and enjoy!

Dear Angel Friends, I posed the question to Archangel Raphael around healing for you because there seems to be some confusion on how we can heal ourselves. Yes, there are many lightworkers in our world that can assist with amazing healing energy and I am blessed to have met so many of them. I do want to remind you that you have the most powerful gift of healing at your own fingertips-your Angelic Team. Yes, we may not all know practiced techniques of healing but your basic gift of healing is ASKING your team for assistance. What I have witnessed...
