Like everyone, when I started my paleo-friendly ketogenic diet, I missed foods like rice, bread and pasta. However, I soon discovered that it's quite easy to make healthy alternatives to all-time favourites like rye bread, pizza, pasta, or even ice-cream.

If you have never tried cauli-rice, you may be surprised how similar it tastes to real rice. The secret to success is simple: Make sure you don't overcook it!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Making this for my dinner tonight. After all the recipes I have tried, I no it will be just as good as all the others


Thank you so much Catherine! Hope you like it! 😊


You're a genius and just made my meals a lot more interesting!


Thank you Karina!


Hi Martina,
I started to follow your website for a week now and bought your book Ketodiet and I am pleasantly surprise how informative it is.. I tried atkins in the past but I will give another go to Ketodiet.. I think my carb tolerance is quite low and find difficult to enter the ketosis phase. This recipe looks great I will try it..


Hi Nes, thank you! I hope my book helps and you find it easy! This recipe is one of my quick-to-prepare favourites - I always have some "riced" cauliflower in the fridge 😊


This is one of the best meals I've tried! I didn't have coconut aminos but used fish sauce and it was great. Yum!


Thank you Betty! This cauli-rice is my fav too 😊


This was DELISH! I made it today with all the ingredients apart from cilantro. Nom nom 😊


To be honest, I'm not a big fan of cilantro either - any herbs you like work great!


This looks soooo damn good! I'm going to make it for lunch today. Thanks for sharing!


You're welcome - hope you like it 😊
