Cauliflower Rice Pilaf

Sharing is caring!

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free.  I am always on the lookout for a new side dish. I am tired of buying cauliflower rice to have it go bad before I can use it all. I researched it and found out that you can freeze cauliflower rice. I will be doing that from now on. We eat a lot more cauliflower nowadays than we used to. Years ago chicken wings were really cheap. Then someone created Chicken wings. Chicken wings price skyrocketed. Soup bones were another one of those things that used to be super cheap. No with all the fad of bone broths they are costly.

I looked up some of my old recipes and found one for rice pilaf. I decided I might as well try to revamp this recipe. So this is the recipe I came up with. My family was surprised that it was cauliflower. They really enjoyed this dish and told me I needed to write it down and put it on my blog.

I used this with my Pistachio Horseradish SalmonKeto Swedish Salmon or just use in place of rice.

1 cup chopped onion

2 cloves of garlic minced

1 tablespoon avocado oil

1 bay leaf

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon thyme

2 tablespoons white wine

4 cups cauliflower rice

1 cup chicken stock

Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Once oil and pan are hot add onion and garlic and bay leaf. Stir until onions are translucent. Add salt, pepper, thyme, and white wine and until they become fragrant. Lower the temp on the stove.  Add cauliflower rice and chicken stock. Cook for 30 minutes on low until most of the liquid has been cooked off. Use as you would rice.
