GOLDEN CAULIFLOWER RICE

There’s never a shortage of new and delicious ways to serve cauliflower rice, and this golden version is totally worth trying out.  The rice is totally worth the effort to use fresh turmeric root!  However if you don’t have any fresh turmeric root on hand then feel free to replace it with ½ teaspoon of dried turmeric.

Servings: 12

Here’s what you need:
• 1 head cauliflower, leaves removed and stemmed
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 yellow onion, chopped
• 1 can (13.66oz) coconut milk, full fat
• 2 tablespoons fresh tumeric root, peeled and finely grated (or ½ teaspoon ground tumeric)
• ¼ teaspoon sea salt
• ½ teaspoon coconut palm sugar
• ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
• pinch of ground cardamon
• ⅓ cup golden raisins
• 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
• ⅓ cup salted, chopped pistachios

Instructions:
1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the cauliflower for 4 minutes. Drain and cool the cauliflower. Cut into florets.
2. Shred the cooled cauliflower in a food processor with the grating attachment.
3. Place the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion, cook for 5 minutes, until tender. Add the coconut milk, turmeric, salt, coconut sugar, cinnamon and cardamom. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then remove from heat and add the raisins. Let steep for 20 minutes.
4. Return to a low boil, stir in the shredded cauliflower and red pepper flakes. Cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and top with the pistachios. Enjoy!
