  • 1¾ cups 425 ml heavy whipping cream

  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp onion powder
  • salt and ground black pepper, after taste
  • 3 oz. 85 g parmesan cheese
Serving

Instructions

  1. Rinse and trim the cauliflower and shred with the coarse side of a grater, or divide into smaller florets and pulse in a food processor until rice-sized. For an even easier prep, buy your cauliflower riced, and skip this step.
  2. Add cream, butter, onion powder and lemon juice to a large skillet and heat until simmering.
  3. Add cauliflower and continue to simmer, stirring frequently, for 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add coarsely grated parmesan cheese; it will melt as you stir it in. Stir for a few minutes.
  5. Chop the spinach coarsely and combine well.
  6. Serve with goat cheese, pecans and a splash of olive oil!

Tip

Just like with rice, some prefer a softer texture and some like it al dente. Be sure to test the cauliflower mixture frequently and get it off the heat before it becomes too mushy.

Substitutes

Yes, for a vibrantly green dish, try broccoli instead of cauliflower. Pay extra attention to taking it off the heat before it turns into a mash.

Storing the dish

This dish keeps for 2-3 days in the refrigerator and reheats easily in the microwave. Perfect for a lunchbox.

    If using pre-packaged cauli-rice in this recipe, how much (by weight or by cups) should one use?

    I made this and it tasted good but 1 3/4 cup of cream seemed to be way too much. There was a lot of creamy mixture (soupy) all over my plate. I didn't have fresh grated parmesan cheese so I used the grated kind from Kraft, maybe that was my problem.

    This is easily a favourite, made it tonight and realised I forgot to get goats cheese so substituted with cream cheese with some dill mixed in, I also had some crispy crumbled chorizo and mushroom over the top my son is currently inhaling his serve.
