"This way of cooking cauliflower is an excellent substitute for most rice dishes for those looking to add more veggies and cut back on grain. Cauliflower is mild and is a great compliment to the Mediterranean flavors of lemon and mint. The recipe is both SCD and Paleo diet friendly. We served this underneath grilled lamb kabobs. It was a big hit!"

yellow onion, diced small
fresh lemon juice
cauliflower, cut into large florets
red bell pepper, diced small
grape tomatoes, halved
chopped fresh mint
extra virgin olive oil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Delicious and filling! I felt super energized by all the veggies, not stuffed like you feel from a whole lot of carby rice. The cauliflower base could work for all types of flavors: Asian, Mexican, anything depending on whatever spices you choose. It could definitely replace a potato side dish as well. For a less tart flavor and even more green, try using less lemon juice and adding some parsley.
Super easy. I like to use it just as I would use any other rice dish. Helps with those carb cravings!
