Cauliflower doesn’t have to be boring!

Many of my patients are on a grain free diet.  The reasons range from IBS to Colitis to Eczema and more.  For some of these people, it means a drastic change, often giving up their favorite foods. Rice is a staple for many people. I recommend experimenting with cauliflower as an alternative!  You are replacing the empty calories of rice with a nutrient dense vegetable, and we all know getting enough vegetables in a day is a challenge.

I first started experimenting with cauliflower rice after reading Well Fed by The Clothes Make the Girl and Against All Grain.

I recommend playing with it, and finding that perfect combination of flavors that suit your tastes.


1 head of cauliflower

2 Tbsps coconut oil

1 minced garlic clove

salt and pepper


Cut the cauliflower into small pieces and pulse in the food processor until the pieces are rice-sized.

In a sauce pan (please no teflon), cook the garlic in the oil for a few minutes.  Add the caulflower and saute until tender.  Add salt and pepper to taste – then serve!  For added anti-inflammatory benefits, I will often add onions and tumeric.
