|Chili Lime Cauliflower Rice|
I have a complex.
I make cauliflower rice all the time. I also make this really amazing hummus-sauce and a really amazing spicy aioli all the time. I also fry eggs with a special homemade spice rub 3-5x per week.
However, I never post recipes for these things, because they don't seem to fit the definition of a recipe. They're that simple and easy! But I realized recently that my concept of an easy recipe is probably skewed, and it is downright rude for me to withhold information from those who might not think to mix hummus with extra tahini, lemon and water and make a salad dressing (there you go, there's one!).
So, today I'm sharing my personal favorite take on cauliflower rice, a dish that hit the health food world like a happy meteor, and which is now found on countless blogs and websites. But you're reading MY website, and I want to take the guesswork out of deciding which cauliflower rice recipes are actually good.
THIS one is good. It is, in fact, absolutely delicious. I made this originally to go with my Coconut Butter Salmon, another dish so easy I've never thought to post it. But now I will, Girl Scout's honor!
In the mean-time, if you find yourself stuck in a healthy sides rut (read: steamed broccoli), try this cauliflower rice for your family. Chili powder is not actually hot and spicy, so kids can enjoy it as well. If you want to get creative, feel free to swap out the chili and lime for other flavorings and spices you enjoy!
Cauliflower rice is as simple as it is magical. You pulse or grate it up, you squeeze out water, and you dump it in a pan with some yummy fat to heat it through. I hope this recipe makes dinner time in your house easier and more delicious!
