Garlicky Kale, Tomato, and Onion Cauliflower “Hash”

Kale Tomato and Onion Cauliflower Hash

Those of you who follow my posts regularly may think that I don’t cook much.  Almost every single post of 2012 has been of a sweet or baked good.

You see, it isn’t that I don’t cook savory stuff.  I am just usually too impatient and eat what I cook before I get some good photographs of it.

This is the reality of a food blogger.  If you want to get some good shots, your food is going to be cold before you get to eat.

But I am learning so much with my new way of eating and I wanted to share it with you!  I decided to snap a few quick shots of my breakfast, they are by no means fancy pictures,  to show you my new discovery: Cauliflower rice!

Those of you who have been doing the Paleo thing and just healthy eating in general thing probably already know about it.  But this is new for me, and I am kind of obsessed with it at the moment!

Cauliflower Rice: Cauliflower pulsed in a food processor or blender until it is the consistency of rice.  An AMAZING substitute for rice or in this dish, hash browns!

Breakfast is my favorite meal.  Especially on the weekends. I love to take my time and cook up something special.  But I have been missing bread or potatoes to sop up my runny egg yolks with these past few weeks.  Then I started reading about cauliflower rice on some other paleo blogs and I knew EXACTLY what I needed to do with it.

I cooked all of this up in a cast iron skillet to get the char on everything that makes it taste like it came from a greasy diner.  The cauliflower rice browned up so nice.  It has the same starchy like texture as potatoes, perfect for sopping up some egg yolk.

  1. Yum.. I’ve made cauliflower rice before, but this looks so much more flavorful!

  2. ha ha I love what you said about being a food blogger…it is so true! And actually I don’t mind it but my boyfriend is still trying to get used to it. Last night he was telling someone else how my desserts now take a couple hours to make. Or when we are out at a restaurant and I am doing a review…I make him wait to eat and usually he has to move out of the way of the picture! The life of a food blogger…

  3. I do love seeing your savory stuff – it’s a nice change, though I do also adore your sweet stuff. This sounds like it’d make a truly fantastic breakfast 😀

  4. I can totally relate about the whole photo shoot process. My kids always ask me before they eat something has this been blogged? Actually it is the other way around. I sometimes take photos of the food and if the kids actually like to eat it then I enter a new page on my website. It has to be mother tested, kid approved. LOL Take care, BAM

  5. I’ve never heard of cauliflower rice before but this sounds really tasty. A great breakfast or probably lunch or dinner for me!

  6. Love this! How simple, nutritious and perfectly easy! We’re going to feature this on our Facebook page and link here so people can see how you did it, and your lovely photography.

  9. I cannot wait to try this! I have been curious about cauliflower rice and this looks like the recipe to use when I finally try it. Putting it on the menu for dinner this week! xo How’s the newly reformed way of eating going?

    • Let me know what you think. I am pretty much obsessed with cauliflower right now because I am missing starchy things a lot.

      My eating is going well. Still going strong despite my husbands complaints that I will not partake in his taco bell eating and will not make him sugary desserts. I am feeling really good! My migraines have minimized greatly!

      How are you doing girl?

      • Good for you! I am so proud of you 🙂 Your husband is just going through withdrawls–ha. The important thing is that you are feeling BETTER which is fantastic news! So happy for you. I’m doing well too! This Take A Hike! Challenge has been so good for me. I find myself conscious every day to do *something* which has proven to be productive in my life 🙂 Hooray! xoxo
