Gluten-Free Recipe: Chipotle-Style Cauliflower "Rice"

As springtime approaches, warmer days are headed our way. Everyone is outside working out, getting fit and ready for bikinis and pool time. I love feeling good and rejuvenated from a great workout. Another way I also love to keep feeling refreshed is through yummy fruit and vegetables.

I decided to make this creation, since I'm now craving lighter and summery foods. This Chipotle-inspired cauliflower rice was amazing! 

Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/8 cup lime juice
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Cayenne pepper (as much as you'd like; I love a lot)
  • 3 tsp paprika 
Directions:
  • Cut off cauliflower bottom and remove leaves. 
  • Cut in half, separate the florets.
  • Pulse cauliflower in food processor, maybe 4-5 times, just until it's the consistency of rice, like the photo. Don't pulse too much or you'll end up with cauliflower mush.
  • Spray saute pan.
  • Place cauliflower rice in pan with garlic and spices.
  • Cook on low heat until all the seasonings are mixed and the rice is cooked. About 3-5 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients, mix well.
I topped mine with black beans, red onions, avocado, and my cashew cheeze sauce. Oh, and lots of chili flakes. Did I mention I like it spicy?

Hope you enjoy this extremely healthy creation! Cheers!
