Another easy one!  You could use two cups of real cooked rice, if you prefer, but this cauliflower version is guiltless & who needs guilt?  And by guilt – I mean a fat ass.  So – why not try it at least once?

Easy Cilantro Scallion Lime Cauliflower Rice


1/2 head of raw cauliflower (about 2 cups once “riced”)

1 cup cilantro

4 scallions (green parts only – put the white bottoms in a glass in some water & let them regrow!)

3 garlic cloves

1/4 cup olive oil

juice of two limes

1 tsp salt



Lime wedges & cilantro as garnish

Grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater – or far more easily – with the grater blade in a food processor.

Puree the remaining ingredients.

In a large pan – add the puree & the cauliflower & heat over med-high heat until the cauliflower is tender.  A few TBS of water might speed that along.  Season with S&P.

Serve with lime wedges & cilantro.  Or with my Vegan Ground Beef Taco Bowl with Cilantro Scallion Lime Cauliflower Rice and Easy Fresh Salsa!
