KetoFlex Recipe: Cauliflower Rice with Spicy Tofu

This is my first recipe as an official KetoFlex person: Rice made from Cauliflower cuddling with Spicy diced Tofu.  Delicious!  If the rest of the food on the "diet" tastes this wonderful, I'm in!


The ingredients list is below.  You might just want to do a scroll through this little tutorial to get a gawk at how to make cauliflower rice (very easy) and spice up your tofu (also easy):

Start with a lovely organic cauliflower.  This is how it looks when it has had its leaves removed.

Pulse it through your food processor until it resembles rice throughout.  Or, alternatively, you can grate it with a box grater.

I like to dry it off so that it doesn't cook up too limp.  I just line a pan with a couple of layers of paper towel, pour in the 'rice', and let it sit a bit.  Then I soak up excess water with towels from the top.

Cut a block of pressed organic tofu into cubes and dredge completely in  a Taco seasoning like Simply Organic Southwest Taco Seasoning Mix, Certified Organic, 1.13-Ounce Packets (Pack of 12) Cover the cubes well.  Mmm.  Smells soooo good!

Cook it up as described below, and you have a really satsifying, tasty meal.  Top with Guacamole.  This should serve 2-3 adults.

INGREDIENTS

3 C. of homemade or packaged Cauliflower Rice
1 block Extra Firm (Pressed) Organic Tofu, diced
2 T. Taco Seasoning
2 T. Nutritional Yeast
Fresh Lime and Cilantro (Optional-- But I'd say go for it!)
2 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3/4 C. Guacamole (your own recipe or packaged)

METHOD OF PREPARATION

  1. Drain and press the tofu.  I generally put the block in a colander and put a piece of paper towel on the block and then carefully place 3 tins of food over the toweling for about an hour or so.  Then dredge the tofu in Taco Seasoning, coating as much as possible.  Set the tofu cubes aside for at least fifteen minutes.
  2. Heat the Olive Oil and gently stir fry the tofu until it begins to turn golden
  3. Add the cauliflower rice.  Stir together thoroughly.  Cover with a lid.  Cook and stir occasionally for about 10 minutes until the rice has softened.
  4. Stir in Nutritional Yeast.  Sprinkle on chopped Cilantro and squeeze on some Lime Juice at serving time (can provide lime wedges to the diners)
  5. Top each serving with 1/4+ C. of guacamole (2-3 servings)
