Hello Whole30ers! It’s Josh from @kitchfix again and it’s your lucky day: I saved my FAVORITE cauliflower rice dish for my last takeover day - and I can’t wait to share it with you! .
Eating cauliflower rice can get tiring, but not this caulirice! This CREOLE “DIRTY” RICE packs a ton of unique flavor with the Cajun Holy Trinity (ie (celery, pepper, & onion) and toasted pecans. I’ve paired this decadent caulirice with a blackened fish, but it would also go well with chicken or even alone! .
Creole “Dirty” Rice
1 Tbl Extra virgin olive oil
2 cup Cauliflower, riced
½ cup Onion, small dice
½ cup Green bell pepper, small dice
½ cup Celery, small dice
½ cup Carrot, small dice
1 Tbl Garlic, minced
¼ cup Pecans, toasted
¼ cup Sunflower seeds, toasted
¼ cup Kale, blanched and chopped
2 tsp Cajun seasoning (Whole30 approved!)
½ bu Parsley, freshly chopped
2 Tbl Fresh squeezed lemon juice
½ tsp Sea salt
¼ tsp Black pepper
SAUTE the cauliflower rice with the garlic and EVOO until the food is cooked yet still slightly firm
SET aside the caulirice for now
SWEAT the carrot, onion, green bell pepper, and celery until they are fork tender
TOAST the pecans and sunflower seeds until they are golden brown delicious
COMBINE all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl
ADJUST the seasoning with salt, pepper, cajun, and a splash of lemon juice
SERVE alongside a blackened fish fillet
DON’T be ashamed if you end up eating it straight out of the bowl. It’s that satisfying!
