Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Prep Time

5 minutes

Prep Notes

I used to make a side of rice for my husband, but it wasn't long after tasting this dish that he insisted on having this delicious substitute instead!

Cooking Time

7 minutes


serves 4


  • 4 tsp coconut oil
  • 450g cauliflower
  • 1 bunch coriander


  1. Cut cauliflower into florets and throw into food processor.
  2. Pulse a few times until it looks like rice - but don't do it too much or it will go mushy.
  3. Heat 2 tsp coconut oil in a nonstick frying pan on medium heat.
  4. Add the cauliflower rice and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally.
  5. Mix in the other 2 tsp of coconut oil and check seasoning. 
  6. Cook a further 2 minutes or until it starts becoming a bit golden.
  7. Mix in the coriander and serve.


This dish makes an excellent accompaniment to Asian dishes. Try it with my green curry chicken!
