What a great low-carb side dish! Tasty alone or as a replacement for rice under your favorite stir-fry or sauce. This also makes a great filling for tacos, over a grain bowl, or cool and toss in a salad. Add other herbs and flavors as desired!

Instructions Checklist
  • Place 1/2 of the broccoli florets in a food processor; pulse about 20 times until broccoli looks like grains of rice. Repeat with remaining broccoli florets.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion; cook and stir until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook for 30 seconds. Stir in broccoli rice, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until broccoli has softened, about 5 minutes. Pour lemon juice on top.

Cook's Note:

Raw broccoli rice can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 5 days.

This is an excellent replacement for rice! I did cook mine a little longer to get some char on it but only due to personal preference. Read More
