Like its mashed counterpart, this cauliflower dish goes with anything. Try it with meals that include a sauce, like Grilled Coconut-Curry Chicken, Romesco Garlic Shrimp, and Pulled Pork Carnitas.
This is another incredibly versatile recipe. Make a Moroccan-style rice by adding 1/4 cup slivered almonds or pine nuts, 1/2 cup raisins, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Make rice Asian-style by adding 2 tablespoons coconut aminos, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and 2 minced green onions. Or make this a complete meal by adding a serving of your favorite chopped protein (like chicken, shrimp, flank steak, or pork) and any leftover sautéed vegetables you have in your fridge.
Pro tip: If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a box grater to shred the cauliflower into rice. Patience, however, as it will take quite a while! You can also make fried “rice” by omitting the chicken broth, adding more cooking fat to the pan, and pan-frying the rice until tender, about 5 minutes. For an even more authentic fried rice experience, stir two egg whites into the cauliflower while pan-frying.
