cauliflower-rice-5This cauliflower rice recipe was inspired by a breakfast I had in my hotel while traveling in Indonesia.  I wanted to create a healthier version without any grains, and grated cauliflower is a great grain-free substitute for rice, and makes you feel so much lighter.  This cauliflower rice makes a really nice breakfast to have on the weekends.

Cauliflower also has many health benefits:

  • Has Anti-Cancer Properties. Cauliflower contains sulfur compounds that have been proven to kill cancer cells.
  • Is Very Detoxifying due to its high concentration of glucosinolates and sulfur.
  • Has High Levels of Anti-Oxidants.  Cauliflower contains vitamin C, manganese and phytonutrients.
  • Is Anti-Inflammatory.  Cauliflower contains many anti-inflammatory compounds.
  • Improves Brain Health due to its high level of choline.
  • Contains High Levels of Vitamins and Minerals.  Cauliflower is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and manganese.
