Nutty Cauliflower Rice



  • 1/2 head raw cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup boiling filtered water, or a bit more if needed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, soaked and toasted if possible (See All About Nuts)
  • 3 tablespoons liquid coconut aminos
  • 1/2 teaspoon unprocessed salt to taste
  • Quite a bit of black pepper


  1. To rice the cauliflower, cut into florets. Place in a food processor and process with the "S" blade until even rice-sized pieces. Don't process it too long or it will be mush.
  2. Place riced cauliflower into a saucepan with all the other ingredients: boiling water, cumin, oil, nuts, coconut aminos, salt and pepper. Heat over medium low heat 2-3 minutes until heated all the way through, and the cauliflower is pleasantly soft like rice. Stir occasionally to keep from burning on the bottom. Serve!
