I don’t have a lot of time on my hands this week, so I’m sharing a recipe. When I’m sticking to my paleo diet, I like to make this side dish. It’s my favorite way to make cauliflower rice. I recommend trying it, if you’re not sick of cauliflower already.
I usually chop cauliflower in my Vitamix or food processor. For moms who don’t even have time for that, buy riced cauliflower. If you happen to live near a Trader Joe’s, I highly recommend their riced cauliflower options.
What you’ll need:
12 oz of riced cauliflower or 1 medium-ish sized head of cauliflower
1 tbsp coconut oil
Bunch of fresh cilantro
1 lime for freshly squeezed juice, halved
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne (or black pepper or both)
Once you have the riced cauliflower, chop some cilantro. I prefer about 1/4 or 1/3 cup minced.
Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. I use this brand of coconut oil for nearly everything: cooking, lotion, diaper cream, pink eye… just not from the same container, of course. 😂
Add the riced cauliflower to the skillet and work in batches, if needed. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, until the cauliflower is heated through completely. Add salt and pepper and the cilantro. Squeeze the lime halves directly over the skillet and mix.
Please keep in mind that sometimes I’m moving so fast I never measure anything (outside of my salt intake, because Sjogren’s). You may need to adjust the amount of salt, cayenne, coconut oil, and lime juice to your liking. Experiment until you get the flavor profile you want. I prefer mine with cayenne, but I have also prepared it with black pepper.
