Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

I must say, I have not missed rice since discovering cauliflower rice. Except in Sushi, so if I eat Sushi I am team white rice all the way, but as far a accompanying a dish, I almost like cauliflower rice better. I know that is a bold statement, but in my case, true. I love a few versions, but for starters here is a standard one that I love!


1 head of Cauliflower
1 hand full of Cilantro
1/2 lime, or more if you like more lime taste
1/2 tsp sea salt
Black Pepper to taste
2T Coconut oil
Grate the Cauliflower with a cheese grater or in a food processor. Heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower, sea salt and pepper. Sauté until desired texture, about 10 minutes. I like to cook it about medium high and let it brown a little. I like the roasted flavor to it. However if you keep it medium it will be more like a steamed white rice. After it is the texture that you want it to be, add the chopped cilantro and the lime juice.

Another way to do it would be to roast the grated cauliflower in the oven at 370 for 20min. I do this if I am doing 2 head of cauliflower or more.
