I love being able to get a quick side ready for a meal and this cheesy cauliflower rice is super easy. Just put the frozen cauli-rice in a pot with a little bit of water to cook it and add the coconut oil and seasonings and it’s ready to go.
The butter-flavor coconut oil in this recipe is one of my favorite products. If you are dairy-free you really need to try it – it’s so good. I have found it at my local grocery store for less than the price on Amazon. So be sure to look for it in the baking aisle.
Another good ingredient to keep on hand if you’re dairy-free is nutritional yeast. It gives your food a yummy cheesy flavor.
If you like to rice your own cauliflower that would work for this recipe as well, but for ease I like to be able to grab a bag of frozen cauliflower rice.
This cheesy rice is also really good in a bowl with sliced sausage or shredded beef and avocado with just a little bit of salsa.Print
1 12 oz bag frozen cauliflower rice
1 tablespoon butter-flavored coconut oil
3–4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
black pepper to taste
Place frozen cauliflower rice in a medium saucepan and add water up to about 1/4″ deep. Cover with lid and cook over medium heat until water begins to boil. Add in butter flavored coconut oil, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Cover with lid and continue cooking for a couple minutes. Turn down the heat, stir and let simmer for a couple more minutes.
