Turmeric Cauliflower Rice with Roasted Cauliflower

March 9, 2017

Last week my husband asked me why there always seems to be so much cauliflower rice around. Whether its with asian flavors, Spanish flavors or mediterranean flavors, I just can't seem to get enough of the stuff! Its just so pillowy and soft and yum. 

In this version, I use turmeric, cumin and sumac to spice the cauliflower and use a portion of it to roast on top of the rice. 




Turmeric Cauliflower Rice with Roasted Cauliflower


Turmeric Cauliflower Rice

3/4 head cauliflower, riced in a processor or grater

1/2 onion, chopped 

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon tumeric

1/2 teaspoon sumac

salt and pepper, to taste

oil to saute 

parsley, optional, as garnish


In a large saute pan, add oil to the bottom and saute the red onion about 5 minutes. Take out a small amount of onion as garnish on top of the dish.  Add the cauliflower and saute an extra 3-5 minutes. Cover and let steam on a low flame about 5-10 minutes (depending on how soft your family likes it). When done, add the spices. 


Roasted Cauliflower

With the remaining 1/4 of cauliflower add 1-2 tablespoons of oil (depending on how large your cauliflower is). Add 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and 1/4 teaspoon of sumac, plus salt and pepper. Roast on 375 until crispy at the edges about 20-30 minutes. 


To arrange, place cauliflower rice at the bottom of the bowl. Add roasted cauliflower in a mound on top, along with the reserved sautéed onions. Add chopped parsley as a garnish over the whole dish.
