If you are looking for a great replacement for grains, try this tasty side dish, Cilantro Rice. Works great with my Mango Avocado Burrito Bowl. – Veronica
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1-2 limes, juiced (about 1/4 cup)
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- Sea salt, to taste
Wash, carefully dry, and chop the cauliflower into pieces. This is essential for the proper consistency of the ‘rice’. Place the cauliflower in a Vitamix and slowly pulse. The texture should look like short grain rice. You may have to do this in batches to avoid it becoming mushy.
In a saucepan, saute the garlic in the oil over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the ‘rice’ and cooked for 3-5 minutes or until done. Pour the lime juice over the rice and gently stir in the cilantro. Season with sea salt. Serve warm.
