Prep Time: 20mPT20M
Cook Time: 15mPT15M
- 1 head (2 to 2 1/4 pounds) cauliflower
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup yellow onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary (finely chopped)
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Black pepper to taste
- 3 to 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro (to garnish)
What You Will Need
- Food processor or vegetable grater
Rinse your cauliflower. Slice it in half down the middle, then slice each half again along the stem. Hold the quarter of a cauliflower upright and slice off the stem; this should separate the florets. Chop them roughly into 1 or 2 inch pieces.
Place half or 1/3 of the cauliflower (depending on how big it is) into a food processor with the blade attachment. Pulse in one-second intervals until the cauliflower pieces are about the size of grains of rice, more or less. Repeat with remaining cauliflower. If you don't have a food processor, you can use a grater.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat butter and olive oil on medium heat. When it is hot, add the onions, and stir occasionally for 5-8 minutes, or until tender. Add garlic and rosemary and cook an additional 2 minutes.
Add "riced" cauliflower and stir in, and cook till tender, 5-8 minutes.
While it cooks, season with cumin, turmeric, ginger, cloves, salt and pepper. None of these measurements or even the spices themselves are hard and fast--go with what sounds good to you.
Remove from heat and add chopped cilantro to taste.
