Lemon Cauliflower Rice
This is a vegetable and salad all in one.
One large head of cauliflower
4 tablespoons oil plus two more tablespoons for the cauliflower
One extra large onion cut into 1/2 inch pieces
3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt maybe more depending on the size of the cauliflower
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
The zest of 1/2 lemon
the juice of 1/2 lemon
lemon slices for garnish
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, use only fresh. If you don’t have fresh leave it out.
8 caper berries with the brine
If you don’t have caper berries use 2 tablespoons capers
2 scallions for garnish
Clean and cut up the cauliflower and put it into the food processor
Pulse till the cauliflower is all crumbles like rice
DO NOT OVER PULSE
Better too big than mush because you want some texture.
In a large skilled add the oil, onions and garlic.
Cook slowly till the onions caramelize
Add the sugar
Add two more tablespoons oil and add the cauliflower and lemon zest
Raise the heat to medium high and stir fry the onions and cauliflower together
This only takes maybe five minutes before the cauliflower cooks.
Add the salt and pepper and taste to see if it needs more salt
Take off the heat and add the lemon juice, chopped parsley and capers.
Garnish with lemon slices, scallions and more parsley.
This can be served hot, warm or at cold.
I squeeze the lemon slices over my portion because I love lemon.
The combination of the sweet onions and lemon is delicious.
