How to cook the best broccoli and cauliflower rice
Salt and Pepper to taste
coconut or extra virgin olive oil
lemon or lime juice
extra virgin olive oil
Pink Himalayan or sea salt, or to taste
TO SERVE (OPTIONAL)
Remove the stem and leaves from the broccoli and cauliflower. Chop into chunks and blitz in a food processor using the S blade until they resemble a rice consistency.
Place the broccoli and cauliflower rice in a metal steamer in 1cm of water and cook for 3 – 5 minutes (or microwave on medium/ high for 3 – 5 minutes) until soft. You may need to do this in batches.
Allow to cool slightly and transfer to a muslin cloth or clean thin tea towel. Squeeze out the excess water. This is the magic step that will make your veggie rices fluffy!
OPTION 1 – plain broccoli or cauliflower rice or a mix.
Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut or olive oil in a pan. Add the veggie rices and fry for 1 further minute. Fluff up with a fork and mix well. Season to taste.
OPTION 2 – with onions, garlic and dressing
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan. Add the onions, saute on a medium/ low heat for 3 – 4 minutes until soft. Add the garlic for a further 30 seconds until fragrant.
Stir through the broccoli or cauliflower rice, or mix of. Season to taste.
Stir all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle, as much to taste, over your broccoli and cauliflower rice and top with optional fresh parsley and avocado.
