{ Cilantro & Lime Cauliflower Rice }

Last week, it was warm and sunny, and the hubs and I were craving a grilled meal. We’ve been trying to eat cleaner (and I’ve been trying to track my Weight Watcher points) so we decided to make veggie kabobs over cauliflower rice. I have shared Coconut Cauliflower Rice before, but here is an alternative recipe for Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice.

{ ingredients }

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice from 1-2 limes and a bit of zest
  • 3 Tbs. EVOO
  • Salt & pepper to taste

{ directions }

  1. Remove the core and let the cauliflower dry completely. Coarsely chop into florets and place half of the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
  2. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat, add olive oil, scallions and garlic and sauté about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft.
  3. Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the cauliflower “rice” to the saute pan. Cover and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Remove from heat and place in a medium bowl; toss with fresh cilantro and lime juice to taste.
  5. Enjoy! Yum!

Makes 6 servings. Only about 55 calories per serving. Shown here with a grilled veggie kabob.
