Paleo Morrocan "Rice"

I made this low-carb rice alternative and was blown away at how much we loved it. We will be doubling this recipe and making it again soon!

1 large head cauliflower
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic
Curry powder
Dried apricots, 5-6, chopped
Pine nuts
Butter (or coconut oil if you want to go hardcore paleo)
Chicken broth

Chop the cauliflower into short-stemmed florets. Process them in a cuisinart in small batches at a time, until it reaches the approximate consistency of rice. Melt oil or butter in a frying pan that has a lid, sautée onion and garlic until softened on medium heat, add raisins, apricots, and pine nuts. Once those are fragrant, barely cover the bottom of the pan with chicken broth, should be boiling. Cover the frying pan with "rice" cauliflower. Sprinkle cinnamon, cumin, and curry powder over the top, as desired. Cover with a lid to steam, 5 minutes.  Uncover and stir fry until softened, about two minutes.

We served this with lime cilantro shrimp and it was amazing. I'm sure you could do lots of fun substitutions, playing with the flavors of this. Enjoy!
