This Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice (OIL FREE) is light in texture and low in calories—and pairs well with our Sofritas Bowl, Black Bean Bowl, and Chana Masala. If you ever want to ramp up your veggie intake, then subbing out whole grain or white rice for cauliflower rice is an easy way to do that. This Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice is fluffy, tasty, and flavorful. #cilantrolimecauliflowerrice #cauliflowerrice #oilfree #danielfastrecipes #healthyveganrecipes #glutenfree #soyfree #nutfree



1/2 large cauliflower (or 1 small head)

1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro

1 Tbsp fresh lime juice


A food processor is golden!

  1. Start with a clean and dry small head of cauliflower (or half of a large head).
  2. Chop your cauliflower head into large chunks, so it fits into a food processor. Use the pulse feature to process keeping an eye on clumping and scraping down the sides as necessary. Be careful not to over-process as the rice will get too mushy. If you don't have a food processor, use a sharp knife to mince your cauliflower head.
  3. Preheat a large (preferably non-stick) skillet over medium heat. Add cauliflower rice to the hot skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often. Turn off heat. While the cauliflower rice is still warm, add fresh finely chopped cilantro and the juice from 1/2 a lime (or 1 Tbsp of fresh squeezed lime juice), and enjoy!
