Whole30 Pesto Caulirice

Three words: pesto cauliflower rice. I love all the micronutrients in cauliflower rice that I’ve never gone back to rice, even though it’s not really inflammatory for me. But this pesto caulirice is my *favorite* way to have it. Cause #pesto, plus it’s #whole30compliant and #paleo

This is not really a recipe as much as a easy combination for deliciousness. But we embrace the simple around here!


Whole30 Pesto Caulirice

Author Autumn @wholefoodfor7


  • 1 16 oz bag cauliflower rice about 3 1/3 cups
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3-1/2 cup pesto link in to my Whole30 pesto recipe in notes!
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped cashews optional


  1. Add coconut oil to a medium saucepan and place on stove over medium high heat. Add riced cauliflower.

  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until riced cauliflower is translucent.

  3. If you haven’t already, while caulirice is cooking, prep the pesto. If you are using store bought pesto (Trader Joes has a Whole30 compliant one), you can skip this step.

  4. Remove pan of cooked cauliflower from heat and stir in 1/3-1/2 cup (depends on how you like it!) of the prepped pesto. Sprinkle with garlic salt, and chopped cashews (if desired - optional but delicious and I love the crunch it adds!). Delicious paired with grilled steak or my garlic chicken!
