Cauliflower rice is simple, light and delicious and can be added to many dishes. Light, fluffy, and easy to prepare.


  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 onion, chopped in little cubes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 big carrots (chopped in little pieces)
  • 70 grams green peas (frozen or rinsed from a glass jar)
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) water
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cube vegetable bouillon
  • optional: spices such as turmeric, cumin and garlic powder (optional, add a bit of vegetable broth)


  1. Wash and cut the cauliflower into florets and puls until completely broken down in the food processor to create ”rice”.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and melt about a tablespoon of coconut oil to coat the bottom. Add the chopped onion.
  3. Once the onion is gold-brown add the vegetable bouillon cube, water, cauliflower rice and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes, or until it’s softened (and the water is evaporated).
  4. In the last few minutes add the green peas.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and spices to taste.


  • For extra flavor add some chopped herbs or fresh lime juice after the rice is done cooking or a bit of tamari/soy sauce.
  • Tip: freeze the cauliflower rice after pulsing in the food processor. The rice can be sealed in an airtight container and frozen for up to three months. Thaw for a few minutes before cooking.
