I’ve been on a bit of a cauliflower rice kick, eating it with almost everything even breakfast, sauteed with some onions, peppers, and spinach with a poached egg delish. However the other night I wanted something with a little more flavor that paired well with spice. I decided to cook the cauliflower in coconut milk with a touch of lime juice and cilantro. Makes the perfect pairing for any spicy dish and is great with the Cilantro Chicken.

Instructions

(Hide Photos)
1

Roughly chop the cauliflower into smaller pieces.

2

Place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse into small “rice” like pieces. You can also use the rice blade if your food processor came with one.

3

Add the cauliflower, coconut milk, salt, and pepper to a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Let simmer for around 8-10 minutes until cauliflower softens and is cooked to your liking. It will be somewhat creamy. For a less creamy texture, use a little less coconut milk.

4

Stir in the lime juice and cilantro.
