Grain Free Cauliflower Rice Salad

GRAIN FREE CAULIFLOWER RICE SALAD

 I’m back in the kitchen and today I'm making a great, clean twist on a Thanksgiving side.

INGREDIENTS:

Grain Base:
1 (24oz) bag organic cauliflower rice
½ brown onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
JF Spicy Salt or JF Universal Salt, to taste 
Black pepper, to taste 

 

Vegetables:
Purple cabbage, shredded
Carrots, shredded 
Persian cucumbers, chopped with skin
Yellow and red pepper, chopped fine
Green onion, chopped fine
Cilantro, coarsely chopped

 

Sesame Dressing:
1½ cups sesame seeds
1 cup water, more as needed
2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
2 tsp garlic, chopped
3 Tbsp coconut aminos
JF Spicy Salt, to taste

PROCESS: 

Grain Base
In a large stovetop pan, sauté onions and cauliflower rice in 1 tbs of olive oil. Mix in garlic, JF Spicy Salt or JF Universal Salt and black pepper to taste. Stir for a few minutes letting water evaporate. Cook until golden. Once cooked, add to a large bowl and let cool. While cauliflower base is cooling, prep and finely chop vegetable ingredients.

 

Sesame Dressing
Throw all dressing ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. (This dressing when made thicker is the perfect alternative for a legume free hummus dip.)
