Sunday was the 4th Sunday of March, which means it was Feed Your Soul Flow at the Long Beach Marina Farmer’s Market (located on E Marina Drive off PCH across from the Whole Foods shopping center). This series is a partnership with my friend Chelsea B; I demo healthy food recipes and she leads yoga. We are there every 4th Sunday of the month…come on by, try some food and say hi!
This past Sunday I demo’d my Dill Cauliflower Rice, which is extremely flavorful…and extremely easy! I like to marinate my cauliflower for 1-2 days in whatever flavors I am using before “riceing” in the blender and sauteéing. It’s a great side dish like this or you can add to greens and make into a “rice” salad. There’s no need to even add dressing because the cauliflower has so much flavor. So many of you that came by asked to buy it right there on the spot (which got me thinking that packaging it up may be in the near future), but I wanted to give you all the recipe to try at home. Thank you for coming by, saying hi, and trying it out!
I start by cutting my cauliflower down into florets and putting into a large bowl with fresh dill, red onion, evoo, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, acv, liquid aminos, and salt & peps; then put into the fridge. I let it sit for 1-2 days to really let it marinate and impart those fresh flavors. When I’m ready to use, I take out of the fridge and add to my Vitamix until the container is about half full. This allows some room for the cauliflower to bounce around so you don’t end up with cauliflower mush. Pulse the blender while using the plunger until the cauliflower has been broken down into smaller pieces resembling rice. While you are “riceing” your cauliflower, heat a large saucepan to medium heat and add dill cauliflower mixture. Sauteé for about 5-10 minutes until cauliflower is slightly softened (to your liking). Eat warm or cold as a side dish or in a salad, or….
On Sunday, I paired my dill cauliflower rice with fresh radish, cucumber, and salad greens mix for a Dill Cauliflower Rice Salad. Fresh, clean, healthy eating free of gluten, sugar, and dairy. I encourage you to try this simple recipe and let me know how it turns out or what variations you try. It’s great with cilantro and lime, as well. See you soon, friends. Much love and nourishment to your body and soul!
