Low Carb Cauliflower Rice

This recipe comes in part from another blogger called Kalyn's Kitchen.  I eat Cauliflower Rice on almost a daily basis with my Low Carb P90x Diet.

Cauliflower is a great vegetable in the broccoli family with similar nutrition properties: high in fiber, vitamin C, sulforaphane (an anti-cancer compound), indole-3-carbinol (an anti-estrogen, which appears to slow or prevent the growth of breast and prostate tumors).

Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Chopped Onion (I like red onions myself)
  • Half-a-head of Cauliflower
  • Spices to taste (salt, pepper). Kayln recommends sumac. I prefer paprika with garlic powder and some Cayenne Pepper (Capsicum) for extra spicy goodness.
Instructions
  1. Chop/Dice onions into small pieces.
  2. Brown the onions over medium-to-high heat in a non-stick pan with the olive oil. This will take about 10 minutes.
  3. Shred the Cauliflower with a grater.
  4. Brown the Cauliflower with the onions and mix well. 
  5. Add spices about half way through.
Serves: 2 (about 2 Cups worth)

There are about 2.5g net carbs (with 2.5g fiber) per cup. Compare that to whole grain rice of about 37g net carbs!!
