Homemade Riced Cauliflower (12 cal per ½ cup)

I decided to try my hand at making my own riced cauliflower since I had a bunch at home, and it turned out so delicious I’m proud of myself!! I used part of my cauliflower head for my mashed cauliflower recipe, so this one yielded about 1 ½ cups. Green giant sells frozen riced cauliflower (which is so delicious), so if you do not have time to make your own, that is always an option. Theirs is only 10 calories per ½ cup and it contains slightly more protein, vitamin c, calcium and iron, but there is more sodium, and carbs to theirs. In general the differences are minimal. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cauliflower head

Process:

  1. Separate cauliflower florets and chop off the stems
  2. Place in blender or food processor and pulse/chop until you get a grainy, rice consistency
  3. Transfer to pan to fry (I used a minimal amount of coconut oil, but you can use other kinds or butter)
  4. Fry, stirring frequently, until soft and some of the cauliflower browns
  5. Add optional seasoning (I prefer turmeric and a bit of sea salt)
  6. Serve and enjoy!

Every human being inherently deserves safe food, clean water, and adequate medical care.

The greatest moral failure of capitalism is that it turned these necessities into commodities.

The greatest moral failure of capitalists is finding ways to justify withholding what we need to live while it is in abundance for the sake of profit.

#NeverForgetTheGood


*Plz feel free to add other good news (even if it’s something small like you ate cheesecake THAT is good news)

*at the end of the year I plan to remake this list with new things, fixed mistakes and links but will be posting from my side blog @iamrainbow
The brain does weird things when you deprive it of food.

And I don’t mean just calorically. Even if you’re eating 2000, 3000 calories a day in recovery, if they’re all safe, you’re still going to be obsessed with food and what you “can’t” have.

(AKA a friendly reminder to challenge yourself today.)
