As I continue down a clean-eating path, I've been trying to cut the white grain, so bye bye white rice that I love so much. Brown rice is the healthier choice for many reasons - nutrients, digestion, fiber, the list goes on. However, the paleoista says it's still a no-no since our cavemen ancestors didn't spend their day farming rice. J also hates brown rice and prefers no rice over brown rice. This doesn't help the cause.
I don't know what took me so long to finally try the paleo alternative for rice - cauliflower rice. "It tastes almost like the real thing!" Sounds too good to be true, right? Obviously nothing is going to replace the delicious taste and texture of plain white rice for me, but after FINALLY giving in and making this cauliflower fried rice, I can say I have found a viable replacement for my beloved bowl of rice that I crave at almost every meal!
The even better news? J is also a fan and says he prefers this cauliflower fried rice over brown rice! Win-win for all! Guess I know what my new go-to dish is going to be. Having the pulse function on the vitamix made this whole chopping process effortless. To make sure that I didn't pulverize the cauliflower with the machine, I separated one head of cauliflower into three batches so that it gets chopped evenly.
