Instructions

  1. Pulse the cauliflower in a food processor into rice like pieces. You can also finely chop the cauliflower or grate it if you don't have a food processor. If you like garlic, you could add 1-2 cloves here as well.
  2. In a large pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the cauliflower rice and cook until tender. If it burns or sticks at all, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  3. Turn off the heat and add the lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper.
