Easy cauliflower rice

This vegetable dish could be an entrée or a side dish. I love the flexibility of it.  I had it as an entrée for my lunch and just added a boiled egg, to make it a more balanced meal. You will need a food processor though, to grind up the cauliflower. I also added in some left over vegetables that I had on hand as well.


1 cauliflower head

2 shallots, sliced thinly

2 garlic cloves, sliced thinly

1 tbsp sambal olek

1 ½ tbsp. Dijon mustard

1 tbsp olive oil

½ red pepper, sliced thinly


  1. Cut up cauliflower to small pieces. Using a food processor, grind to small pieces resembling grains of rice.
  2. Heat pan. Add Olive oil. Add in shallots and cook until almost golden brown.
  3. Add in garlic. Stir fry for a few minutes until golden brown.
  4. Mix in cauliflower and red pepper.
  5. Add in sambal olek and mustard and mix with cauliflower until well combined.
  6. Dish is ready when the cauliflower is a little tender.


Another variation

I found this lovely yellow cauliflower and sprouted beans the other day and decided to make cauliflower rice again. This time, I pan fried some mustard seeds with onions.  When the onions were nice and golden brown, added in about 6 curry leaves, the cauliflower and about a cup of sprouted beans and tossed in some kale. A lovely lunch indeed!
