I am a constant victim of the Pinterest food trap. You know, when you find something that looks amazing and the recipe is "really simple" and full of "things you already have at home". You click on it as you're drooling all over the keyboard and the recipe calls for mixing in this bean that needs to be hand-picked from the third bonsai tree in a never-heard-of country that must be used within 20 minutes of picking or add this spice which costs about $300 dollars a tsp. You know, normal, simple stuff everyone has. Yeah, nope!
So when I was
stalking looking through the brilliant Blogilates site and came across "cheap clean eats" I almost didn't click on it. Almost!
I made her (Cassey Ho, the mastermind behind Blogilates) cauliflower rice with celery and onions. First of all, it's delicious. Second of all, this is all you need:
1 cup of Celery
1 head of Cauliflower
2 tbs Olive Oil
Chop up your cauliflower and dice your onion and celery.
Add olive oil to your pan and sauté your onions over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until soft.
While you're waiting, throw your cauliflower into your food processor until it has the consistency of rice.
When the onions are ready, add your celery for about 5 minutes.
Add your cauliflower, cover the pan and let it sit over the heat for about 10 minutes
Warning: the cauliflower is going to be really hot so don't be a jughead like me and touch it.
Check that out! It has a subtly sweet taste and, honestly, you forget that it's all vegetables.
It was my lunch for a few days and was the perfect thing to take to work and just heat up a bit. Guilt free comfort food.
There's quite a bit of waiting for things to cook in this recipe and while you could use that time to clean up as you go so you don't have to worry about it in the end, I recommend blasting some music and having kitchen dance parties. Make your soul and your stomach happy!
