This is not my first recipe for cauliflower rice.    I posted Easy Cilantro Scallion Lime Cauliflower Rice

and Spicy Thai Fried Cauliflower Rice


and Spicy Orange Cauliflower with Cauliflower Fried Rice 


and Cauliflower Sushi Rice.


It really is a wonderful & easy substitution for real rice & comes together even faster.

I used coconut oil but olive oil would work.  Coconut oil adds a nice layer of flavor to this, though.  I also had a HUGE head of cauliflower which produced about 6-8 cups of cauliflower rice.  If you have a smaller one – adjust the ingredients.

Garlic and Ginger Cauliflower Rice


1 head cauliflower – grated on a grater or in a food processor with the grater blade (I ended up with 7-ish cups)

3 TBS coconut oil (or olive oil)

10 garlic cloves – minced

4 TBS ginger – grated fine

2 TBS rice vinegar

salt to taste

Scallions – sliced – as garnish

I used a large wok that I cooked my Garlic & Ginger Green Beans in so you can see remnants of that dish in the pan.  The two dishes really do compliment each other so I recommend the pairing!

Grate your cauliflower.  Heat coconut oil in a wok (or other large saute pan) over high heat.  Add the cauliflower & stir it so it all gets a little oil on it & cook until soft – maybe 5-8 minutes.    At the end – add the garlic & ginger & rice vinegar.  Stir to incorporate & maybe add a bit of salt.  Add a few sliced scallions & you are good to go!
