Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice
Yield: Serves 3-4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
1 large head cauliflower
1/2 yellow onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
Zest and juice of 1 lime
Large handful fresh cilantro chopped (about 1/2 a cup)
2 tbsp. olive oil (or vegetable stock for oil free)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
Dice your onion, mince your garlic, chop your cilantro, zest your lime and set aside.
Cut the cauliflower florets from the stems and place them into a food processor. Pulse until your cauliflower becomes a fine rice like texture.
Into a large skillet over medium heat add your olive oil. Once hot add garlic and onion to the skillet and cook until soft and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
Add cauliflower, zest, lime juice, salt and pepper to the skillet and incorporate everything together.
Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until the cauliflower has softened.
*Make sure not to over pulse your cauliflower as it can turn into more of a paste like texture versus rice if you allow it to process for too long.
*If you do not have a food processor your could mince the cauliflower very fine to achieve a rice like texture.
