Keto Cauliflower Rice Recipe, So Much Yum!

This keto cauliflower rice recipe is a gluten-free, low-carb alternative to starchy rice grains. It can be altered with the shake of your favorite spice so you can make it your own! Perfect as a side dish, casserole, or bed for a savory mix of meat and veggies. Having a really good blender makes this easy, but there’s also nothing wrong with chopping it all up on a cutting board. Why not buy pre-riced cauliflower? One word: BUDGET. My favorite store Aldi sells a head of fresh cauliflower for under two bucks!

Having a really good blender makes this incredibly fast and easy, but there’s also nothing wrong with chopping it all up on a cutting board. This is the blender I’ve had for four years. I use it to pulverize nuts into flour, make incredible keto shakes, and of course, pulverizing cauliflower into lovely rice sized bites in about 3 seconds. This picture shows the remains after I threw about a half a head of cauliflower in, broken into ping-pong ball sized chunks. It also comes with serving size cups to blend directly in. If you haven’t fallen in love with bulletproof or fatty coffee, blending it might be just what you’re missing.

 Keto Cauliflower Rice Directions

  1. Pulverize 1/2 head of cauliflower. Mix with two stalks of chopped celery and one small chopped onion.
  2. Season with salt, pepper and your choice of spices. I used paprika, red peppers, garlic, cayenne pepper.
  3. Heat 1/4 avocado oil or Kerrygold butter in skillet, add rice mixture, 1 tablespoon liquid or coconut animos, 1/2 cup of bone sipping broth, and stir.
  4. Now it’s just like cooking hashed browns. Pat the mixture into the pan and let it brown. Flip it as best you can to brown on the other side. Once it’s cooked, you can stir it all back up to give it some fluff.

Breaking A Weight Loss Plateau



Ketogenic Sirloin Steak

Steak on a keto diet? Works for me! It’s perfect for a ton of veggies just waiting to soak up that savory flavor. I have been using a soy sauce alternative, Liquid Aminos, but may switch to coconut aminos because of the soy in the first product. Still much healthier and lower in carbs than your standard soy sauce, but cooking ketogenic meals is a journey! I learn as I go. No keto police patrolling here!


I sometimes cook a large portion to have for the week. Cooking ahead is critical for me, to reduce the nibbling I do while trying to come up with dinner. Planning relieves stress. It allows for better, healthier choice making.

Ingredients: flank steak, avocado oil, garlic, liquid aminos, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, sesame seeds, nuts of your choice (I used a mix of walnuts, pecans, pine nuts and almonds), balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

  1. In pan, heat 2T avocado oil and 1t minced garlic. Add all chopped veggies (about 1 cup) except spinach and saute over medium heat till tender.
  2. Add 10 ounces of thinly sliced steak, 1 tablespoon liquid aminos, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Cook til desired temperature. I prefer medium.
  3. Stir in nuts and sesame seeds.
  4. Turn off heat and stir in chopped spinach.

Veggies vary in how long it takes to get them just right. I sometimes like to use big chunky cauliflower to complement the solid beef bites. So I steam it a little first. If you have a bit more time, you can cook the fatty bits of the sirloin in garlic, liquid aminos, avocado oil, and then set aside to let the juices run and use to saute veggies. The balsamic vinegar makes this dish!

I add spinach to so many things because of the potassium. Replacing lost electrolytes as your body adjusts to burning ketones for fuel can help you avoid the keto flu. So salt, potassium and magnesium you should be good to go! This is a filling, hearty meal that would be ideal before any intermittent fasting you may do. Eat the fat! Be well!
