- 1 large head cauliflower
- ½ 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
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ¼ tsp. ground pepper
Dice onion, mince garlic, chop cilantro, zest lime and set these ingredients 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 sauté 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 or use your blender to pulse small amounts at a time.
- To make this oil free you could use vegetable broth. Just splash a few tablespoons as needed to ensure nothing sticks to the pan.
