Paleo Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice



Rinse your cauliflower and set aside.

In a medium sized pan over medium heat, start browning your onions in the EVOO.

Chop your cauliflower (disregarding the larger portion of the stalk) into about 1” cubes.

Put about ¼ of the chopped cauliflower in the food processor (or blender) and blend until it has a small – grainy texture. Repeat for the rest of the cauliflower.

[Note: I divide mine up into 4 steps so I can be sure that all the cauliflower has the same consistency. Too large of a batch could result in unwanted large chunks.]

Once the onions are slightly browned, add the minced garlic.

Stir then add the cauliflower.

Sauté for about 10 minutes over medium/high heat, stirring constantly.

The moisture from the cauliflower will deglaze the caramelized onions from the pan, allowing the cauliflower to take on the delicious char flavor.

Once it is to your preferred consistency, stir in the lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Sauté for an additional 3-5 minutes.

Take off heat, stir in cilantro.
