I ran across this recipe online and decided to give it a try. It's interesting and simple enough to make. The olive oil does add some flavor. I topped mine with additional cilantro leaves and a little more lime juice. It wasn't as green in color as the photo that's shown. Using a food processor, I made my own crumbled cauliflower.
GREEN CAULIFLOWER “RICE”
- 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and stems
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped white onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 seeded jalapeo
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound fresh cauliflower crumbles or riced cauliflower (about 4 cups)
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 3/8 teaspoon kosher salt
How to Make It
Place coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and stems, coarsely chopped white onion, garlic clove, and seeded jalapeño in a mini food processor; process until finely chopped and almost paste-like, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add fresh cauliflower crumbles or riced cauliflower (about 4 cups); cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes or to desired texture. Stir in fresh lime juice and kosher salt.
