Newbie – Cilantro Lime Cauliflower "Rice"

 I have been hearing more and more about cauliflower rice and just thought it sounded like a little too much work to enjoy a veggie i already love to eat. Let me be the first to tell (if you have’t already tried it) that it is worth this ONE extra step to make this delicious “rice”, plus cooking time is a breeze! It was hard not to eat and entire head of cauliflower.

Cilantro Lime Cauliflower “Rice”


1 Tsbp Coconut oil  (sub for water if you please)

1 Onion, chopped

2 Cloves of garlic, minced

1 Head of cauliflower, rinsed

1/2 Lime

1/4 C Chopped cilantro

1 Tsp Curry powder

Salt and pepper to taste


Using a food processor finely chop the cauliflower into small pieces slight larger than rice or you can grate the cauliflower using a cheese grater. Warm the oil in a large skillet, add onions and cook until clear, 3-5 minutes then add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in chopped cauliflower and the juice from the lime. Cook for about 5 minutes stir frequently. Finally, add cilantro, curry powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and enjoy. Tastes great served warm or cold.  

*I serve mine with steamed kale and roasted asparagus.
