This Buttery Cauliflower Rice Pilaf is the perfect keto side dish. Cauliflower rice, sautéed with butter, garlic, onions, chicken stock until perfectly tender, and topped with green onions. It can be ready in less than 20 minutes and pairs perfectly with just about any main dish.
Ingredients in Keto Cauliflower Rice Pilaf
- Cauliflower rice: Most stores carry both fresh and frozen cauliflower rice. You can use either in this recipe. If you cannot find riced cauliflower in your local grocery story, you can make your own by shredding a head of cauliflower on a box greater or by pulsing it in a food processor.
- Butter: For this cauliflower rice pilaf recipe I used salted butter. You can also use unsalted butter, but you may need to increase the salt in the recipe just a bit. For a dairy free version, try using this butter flavored coconut oil.
- Onion: I used a sweet onion. You can also use white onion, red onion, or even shallots.
- Chicken bouillon: I use powdered chicken bouillon granules, but you can also crush up 2 to 3 chicken bouillon cubes.
How to Cook Cauliflower Rice
I have learned over time, and through many cauliflower recipes, that the longer you saute cauliflower rice, the more it takes on the flavor and texture of other foods like rice or potatoes. This recipe also make a great base for my Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe.
