Cilantro Cauliflower Rice

-1 large head of cauliflower
-1 C onion, diced
-about 1/4th of a bunch of cilantro, or more to taste
-optional zest of a small lime
-salt and or spices as desired (definitely garlic and maybe something for heat)
-chicken stock or water for boiling (or combination)

Cut the florets off the cauliflower head and boil in water, stock, or a combination until tender.  If you use water, I would suggest putting a little butter or similar, along with salt. Toss in the onions and let them cook as well.

Once it is all tender, drain and transfer the veggies to a food processor along with the cilantro and other spices as desired and pulse until it is well shredded.

You can also add in salsa or similar if you like and serve it alongside fajita fixings or whatever other food you may want to eat typical rice with.

I really like cauliflower as a rice substitute, as long as it is cooked with stock or similar and seasoned well so that it does not really still taste like cauliflower.

I may try to adapt this into a fried rice at some point.

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
