cauliflower, cut into florets
lime, juiced and zested
This was tasty. I thought I had cilantro in the fridge. Turned ut it was italian parsely but I forged ahead anyway. I used a mixture of basil and parsely in this instead. Next time I think I'll cook the cauliflower a minute or so less. I wouldn't mistake this for white rice, but it is a nice side dish
This was not a hit for us. We eat a low carb diet and have prepared cauliflower in many different ways. I found this to be both bland and a little sour. There are MANY better recipes using chopped cauliflower.
Excellent! We don't use a microwave so we just boiled in water. It was good warm and it would be good chilled.
omg omg omg.. this doesn't even BEGIN to taste like cauliflower.. i didn't use the butter but i sprinkled in some parm afterwards and wow.. out of this world.. i can't wait to make it for bf.. ty so much for this recipe
This is so easy and very tasty. If you are looking for directions on how to pre-prepare the cauliflower and freeze it, suggest storing the rice in "2 cup" batches. Pull it out of the freezer and prep (I too used a skillet without a microwave). Another butter substitute is coconut oil. Thanks for sharing!!!
This is really good. I just cook the cauliflower rice in a skillet with coconut oil instead of butter. Finish off with some Siracha chili sauce for a nice kick.
Super easy to make. My fiance and I are on a carb-less diet and I LOVE cooking spanish rice (and crave it more than anything), but this was a great substitution! I cooked it in a skillet, one tbs of butter, instead of two and I used 2 limes for extra flavor.
We loved this recipe! Even though we are a family of 3, I could have and perhaps, should have doubled the recipe; it warms up wonderfully the next day. I second the recommendation of using two limes - we love citrus in our household! Also, instead of butter, I used coconut oil and added just a bit of unsweetened shredded coconut. I can't say that we thought it was really white rice, as some reviewers mentioned, but it was so darn good nonetheless accompanying my husband's tasty Asian stir-fry. Already picked up two more cauliflower heads to make it again this week-end! Thank you for sharing this recipe, Abussone!
