Cauliflower "Rice"

Found this recipe recently at Fast Paleo.  Last night was the first time I've tried making cauliflower "rice".  My household isn't big on cauliflower so we don't have it often.  We live in Japan so sticky rice is everywhere and I'm feeling a bit deprived never getting to eat my rice with my meals like everyone else.  That's one thing I miss since starting Paleo is my sticky rice.  So last night I made cauliflower "rice".  It really was pretty good.  It took me a few bites to get over the fact that it wasn't really rice but I ate it with some spicy coconut curry and really liked it.  I think it is something I will probably be making again in the near future.

Cauliflower "rice"

1 head of cauliflower
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp. coconut oil

Remove most of the stalk of the cauliflower and leave them in florets.  Place them into a food processor and pulse until course and rice like.  Add coconut oil to a saute and add in garlic cloves and diced onion and saute until tender.  Dump in "rice" like cauliflower and saute for about 6-10 minutes or until just tender.  Add salt to taste and serve.
