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!

Celtic Healings Intuitive Readings with Maria O'Farrell Carr


Wellness Tip
Five minute de-stressors
People often say they are "stressed" when their normal coping mechanisms have been overwhelmed. If you need to decrease stress and improve coping, consider taking at least one 5 minute, de-stress break each day, preferably more. You can try different 5 minute activities throughout the week. These include stretching, daydreaming, deep breathing, reading a few pages of a novel, doodling, listening to your favorite song, or going for a quick walk. These mini "me" times provide a quick break and allow you a chance to regain emotional and mental control in difficult situations.
