Instructions

  • Make the cauliflower rice by following this recipe.
  • Do not cook the cauli-rice.
  •  For best results, use a grating blade on your food processor to create rice-like shapes.
  • I used my Kenwood mixer with a food processor attachment.
  • Grease a large pan with ghee or butter.
  • Once hot, add the finely chopped onion and cook over a medium heat until lightly browned.
  • Add the cauli-rice and mix well.
  • Cook for just a few minutes and pour in the chicken stock (or vegetable stock).
  • Cook for another 5 minutes or until the cauli-rice is crisp-tender.
  • Meanwhile, grate the cheddar and parmesan cheese.
  • Add the mustard, stir and take off the heat.
  • Add the grated cheese and mix well.
  • Keep some parmesan cheese for garnish.
  • Add the freshly chopped chives and also keep some for garnish.
  • Season with salt to taste if needed.
  • Enjoy hot!
