Coconut Cauli Rice Pilaf is a flavorful side dish – low in carbs and high in nutrients. Try it next to fish, or teriyaki chicken!Jump to Recipe
Let’s be honest. Cauliflower rice isn’t really rice, and not everybody loves it. (Ahem. 🙋🏼♀️) However, it can be useful. I wanted to create a cauli rice that I might actually want to eat. I did it! The picky teenager (who is becoming less so) actually ate it!
Anyway. This recipe is super easy, quick, and uses readily available ingredients. Save yourself some time and use pre-riced cauliflower. (I recommend raw, not frozen.) You can chunk up your own in a food processor, but if you’re like me, you need something of your AIP cooking to be easy and fast! Get the pre-done stuff.
Coconut Cauli Rice Pilaf would be fantastic with last week’s Picadillo…
or as a side for Salmon w/Orange Maple Glaze…
or with Teriyaki Chicken and Pineapple Skewers…
or maybe even next to AIP Marinated Flank Steak!
Before I get to the recipe, I have something special and fun to share with you. I made a tongue-in-cheek video with 9 other AIP bloggers to illustrate the AIP life. If you need a little levity in your life – and who doesn’t? – check it out!

Hi, I made it and hubby was no way (he doesn’t like coconut) so I did it again using olive oil to saute the cauliflower. Then added more olive oil and used the other ingredients. He liked it!! So thanks for recipe. I am new to aip but trying to make it work for us.
Hi! You know, I get where your hubby is coming from. Coconut can be off-putting at times. I try to offset that with citrus. I’m glad you found a way that you like it!
