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


  1. Dice your onion, mince your garlic, chop your cilantro, zest your lime and set aside.

  2. Cut the cauliflower florets from the stems and place them into a food processor. Pulse until your cauliflower becomes a fine rice like texture.

  3. 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.

  4. Add cauliflower, zest, lime juice, salt and pepper to the skillet and incorporate everything together.

  5. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until the cauliflower has softened.

  6. Enjoy!


*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.
