Cauliflower Rice/Couscous


I have started to change the way I think about food and what I eat.  I actually started a few months ago but I gave up because I really did not know what to make. In talking with others about this a book was recommended to me, It Starts with Food.  The book focuses on changing the way we think about food.  So with that in mind I set off to find some great tasking recipes and I found a real winner with this one.  Trying to reduce, or eliminate the amount of grains I am eating this one is great.  Use this when you would use rice or couscous although I have not tried it in soups or other dishes that would require it to simmer.

This is based on a recipe I found on the website Nom Nom Paleo  Do not over spice this dish let the cauliflower be the star.

1 small head of cauliflower (coarsely chopped)
1 small onion, chopped finely (I used some frozen onion I had in the freezer)
2 tablespoons butter (I used Smart Balance)
1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil (I used olive oil)
Kosher salt to taste (remember let the cauliflower be the star)
Black pepper to taste

1.  Chop up the cauliflower and place it in a food processor
2.  Pulse until it reaches to consistency of rice, about 2 minutes
3.  Saute the onions until translucent, in the butter and olive oil, salt to taste
4.  Add the cauliflower to the pan and mix well to incorporate the onions and fat.
5.  Enjoy!

In the comments let me know if you tried it and what you thought.
