This recipe for baked cauliflower rice came as a tip from one of the readers of my Danish blog. I love how the inspiration can go both ways. I share my favorite recipes and cooking tips with you and sometimes you share your favorites with me.
Cauliflower rice in itself is a bit boring. It needs a sauce to blend into as a minimum. The baked cauliflower rice is different. They taste yummy all by themselves. Well, at least when you top them with the overly delicious Dukkah. Dukkah is an Egyptian nut and spice mix and if you haven’t started making your own, I strongly encourage you to do so. It makes the most simple dish taste amazing! If not, you can top your cauliflower rice with chopped nuts, spices or fresh herbs. Or nothing at all!
SERVES 4 PERSONS AS A SIDE DISH
- 1 cauliflower (600-800g)
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil or meltet coconut oil or butter
- 2 cloves of garlic
- salt and pepper
- Dukkah for garnish
2. Cut cauliflower in chunks and place them in the large bowl of your food processor (the one with the S-knife). Pulse the cauliflower until you have a chunky rice.
3. Place the shredded cauliflower in a large bowl and mix with your choice of oil and minced garlic. Spread out on a baking plate lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until they get a bit brownish.
4. Take them out of the oven and pour them into a serving bowl. Garnish with dukkah before serving.
