I have posted several variations of cauliflower rice over the years – most of which can be found HERE. This one is likely the richest of the lot due to the added lite coconut milk. Still – if you consider that it isn’t really rice but, rather just grated cauliflower, that added decadence of the coconut milk & curry paste are not that bad.
Cauliflower rice is easiest if you have a food processor with a grating blade. If not – you can grate the cauliflower with a box grater or other grater – but raw cauliflower tends to pop all over the place & can get rather messy.
I’m not sure if some of my earlier cauliflower rice recipes had the added step of steaming the cauliflower & squeezing out the water – but – that is a step not necessary for cauliflower rice. I think that step only matters if you are going to make cauliflower pizza dough or cauliflower tortillas – as seen below.
This dish is quick & easy & very tasty. And good for you!
Vegan Spicy Thai Red Curry & Coconut Cauliflower Rice
Serves 4 or more as a side
1 large head cauliflower – grated in with a food processor or a manual grater
Coconut or other cooking oil
1 red bell pepper – diced
1 onion diced
1-3 jalapenos – minced (use more or less according to your taste for heat)
1-6 cloves of garlic – chopped (use more or less according to your taste for garlic)
1 cup lite coconut milk
1 TBS red curry paste
1 TBS Bragg’s liquid amino acids (or soy sauce or tamari)
1 tsp agave nectar (or sugar)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Garnish – cilantro, lime wedges
In a very large saute pan, heat about 1 TBS oil & add the cauliflower. Saute on high for 5-7 minutes or until it just begins to brown. Transfer to a bowl & set aside.
In the same pan, add about another TBS of oil & saute the red bell pepper, onion & jalapeno until they get soft – maybe 5 minutes. Add the garlic & stir for a minute & then add the curry paste & coconut milk & amino acid (or soy sauce) & agave. Incorporate & then add the cauliflower rice. Stir in some cilantro & combine. Garnish with additional cilantro & lime wedges & serve.
