I enjoy preparing new dishes and one is getting away from the traditional rice dish. Have you ever tried cauliflower “rice”? This is a easy and healthy alternative to the grain rice. I have prepared different versions of cauliflower rice but this the latest recipe I’ve tried and I liked it. I used this as a side dish with fish and a green salad – it was yummy!
Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable and contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytochemicals. Cauliflower has vitamin C, beta-carotene, quercetin, an much more.
You can eat cauliflower raw, add to salads, steam, bake, riced and mashed, a healthier version of “mashed potatoes.” I have also made cauliflower pizza crust.
We all probably need a healthy dish tonight after indulging on Super Bowl Sunday.
Cilantro & Lime Cauliflower Rice
4 cups grated cauliflower (medium size head)
2 TBSP. coconut oil
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 lime, juiced
½ cup chopped cilantro
Salt and black pepper to taste
Wash and completely dry a medium size head of cauliflower. Cut the floweret in medium size pieces and put into a food processor and process until looks like rice. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and place the rice cauliflower into the hot oil. Stir frequently so not to burn cauliflower cook approx. 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic, salt and pepper and continue stirring frequently for approx. 3 minutes. Add the lime juice and cilantro and cook another 2 minutes.
Cooking time total approximately 10 minutes 4 servings
