How’s that for snazzy alliteration? i can’t take the credit, the recipe I’m preparing to completely RAVE ABOUT is from The Clothes Make the Girl blog. As I mentioned earlier today, I haven’t had time this week to prepare meals. At lunch, I ran home (after stopping at my local grocery store) and made Calypso Confetti Cauliflower with some easy grilled chicken breast. Holy smokes. I am the first to admit that I don’t really like Cauliflower all that much (I don’t know why I feel the need to continue capitalizing that word, but it’s happening) – truth be told, I think it smells a little like feet that need to be washed. YUM! However, I’ve learned through the paleo lifestyle that experimentation, bravery and open-mindedness are important. So, I’ve made Cauliflower rice in the past using different ingredients, but nothing, NOTHING I TELL YOU, has come out as tasty as this dish:
1/2 yellow onion, finely diced (original recipe said 1/2 cup of onion)
1 green pepper, finely diced
1/2 red pepper, finely diced
1 carrot grated
1 head of cauliflower grated/processed so it looks similar to rice (original recipe said 2-3 cups)
1. Throw some coconut oil into the pan (I used around 1.5 TB); add onions, peppers and carrots. Cook until tender and starting to brown (the onions should be translucent).
2. Add some more coconut oil to the pan (I added another TB); toss in the cauliflower rice and a pretty good sprinkle of sea salt; stir-fry the whole colorful mess until slight browned.
