Mexi-Cauli Rice

I love any side dish that can make your main course seem even more exciting. I also love the way Lori Zanini has created such delicious recipes that never make me feel like I’m missing out because I’m eating healthy.

This Mexi-Cauli Rice recipe is beautiful, tasty and good for you — the recipe trifecta! Plus, it’s a snap to make. Let’s get cooking!

Serves 4 (½ cup each)

Prep Time:: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

• 3 cups cauliflower florets
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• ½ cup diced onions
• 2/3 cup sliced tomatoes
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• Pinch cayenne pepper
• ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
• Juice of ½ lime
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower a few times until it is in small, rice-like pieces.
2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and onions and sauté until the onions are translucent, 3 to 4 minutes.
3. Add the tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes are broken down, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic powder and cayenne pepper and remove from the heat.
4. Stir in the cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper.

Serve warm.
