Ever have those weekends filled with too much sugar and too few vegetables?
Ya, me neither. I can’t imagine having waffles for breakfast, sugary coffee for lunch, and ice cream & cookies for dinner .
(*cough* it was all “paleofied”)
If you were to have such a day this would be the dish for you. I mean, it’s green. Can’t get much healthier than that. Plus the name makes you a goddess through association. Isn’t that how it works?
I’m going with yes, that’s how it works. It’s only two days into the week and I already want to crawl into a blanket hole. If indulging in green “rice” and calling myself a goddess makes it better then that is indeed how things work.
Be a goddess. Make this.
Green Goddess Cauli Rice
1 head cauliflower
1/2 tbsp ghee, or coconut oil
1 cup basil leaves, loosely packed
4 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
Chop cauliflower into florets and place in food processor. Pulse until cauliflower is broken up into rice sized pieces. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and melt ghee. Pour cauli rice into the skillet, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and sauté until cauli is cooked, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, place avocado, basil, olive oil, 1/4 cup water, and lemon juice in food processor. I like things lemony, so I used all the lemon’s juice. If you aren’t such a lemon fan use the juice of half the lemon. Puree until smooth, adding salt and pepper to taste.
Once cauli rice is cooked, remove from heat and pour green goddess mixture into skillet. Stir to combine and serve.
I feel better already, bring on the week.
