•1/2 Tbsp coconut oil {optional}
•1/2 Tbsp ghee/butter {optional}
•1/2 a can coconut milk 
•1-2 Tbsp green curry paste

Cauliflower Coconut Rice
Makes 4-5 cups

Ingredients: cauliflower, coconut shreds, coconut oil

Chop up a head of cauliflower into 4-5 pieces. Steam for 10-15 minutes.  Do not steam the cauliflower too much.  It's better to have it more on the underdone side.  Then pulse in a Cuisinart or any food processor until it resembles rice. 

Then add:
•1/2-2/3 cup coconut shreds {optional}
• 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil {or butter}

*Serve the Thai Green Curry over the Cauliflower Rice {Can substitute brown or white rice}
