Orange Ginger Cauliflower Rice Ingredients:
1 large head of organic cauliflower
3-4 tbsp of Beyond Organic Ginger Terrain
1-2 tbsp of ginger powder
3 tbsp of turmeric powder
3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
½ stick of grass-fed butter, melted
1/2 red onion diced (optional)
Pink salt to taste
Ground pepper to taste
Orange Ginger Cauliflower Rice Instructions:
- Steam cauliflower until slightly tender (if you would like the cauliflower raw you can skip this first step)
- Then grate cauliflower down into rice size chunks
- Melt some grass-fed butter but don’t boil – just light heat to melt because if you use too much heat you will damage some of the valuable essential fats
- Put all the grated cauliflower into a bowl and add butter, Ginger Terrain and extra virgin olive oil.
- Add ginger and turmeric and mix really well until the orange color of the turmeric is homogenous throughout the dish
- Dice and add in red onion
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
Dr Jockers Comments:
White rice is full of blood sugar spiking simple carbohydrates and offers no nutritional value. Brown rice provides some nutrition but is still inflammatory because it elevates blood sugar and contains high amounts of lectins. It is advisable to go grain-free for optimal health and well-being.
This cauliflower recipe gives a similar taste and texture as rice without the starchy, inflammatory carbohydrates. Ginger and turmeric are loaded with powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. The grass-fed butter and extra virgin olive oil provide a terrific blend of essential fatty acids for brain and hormone health.
The Beyond Organic ginger terrain is a fermented ginger that adds enzymes, probiotics and organic acids along with fermented gingerol anti-oxidants. Fermented ginger has an eight to twelve time greater absorption rate than regular ginger or ginger powder. Turmeric has a ten time greater absorption rate when it is combined with organic acids, healthy fats and pepper.
This dish is extremely anti-inflammatory and tastes great. It is a masterpiece of nutritional synergy and will complement a big salad and healthy organic meat for an amazing dinner. You could also keep this around and use it as a healthy lunch or snack.
Should Cauliflower Be Cooked or Eaten Raw?
If you have thyroid problems it is best to consume the cauliflower slightly steamed to remove any unwanted goitrogens. If you have major leaky gut syndrome than it is also best to lightly steam the cauliflower as it is easier on the digestive system.
If you have cancer it is best to consume the cauliflower raw to maximize enzyme content as well as powerful anti-carcinogens in the form of sulfuraphane, phenyl isothiocyanates and indole-3 carbonyl. Raw cauliflower contains signicantly more of these nutrients than steamed cauliflower.
