  • Poor rice into a medium bowl.
  • Add avocado, garlic, basil, olive oil, lemon juice, crushed red pepper, sea salt and black pepper into processor.
  • Process until a smooth, creamy sauce.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a frying pan.
  • Add cauliflower and stir to heat through for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add avocado cream sauce to cauliflower and stir to combine.
  • Turn heat to low and allow to heat for several more minutes.

My food processor has an attachment that I use as well that creates great rice like pieces.
