  • 1 head of cauliflower washed
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lime juiced and zested
  • 1/2 cup cilantro finely chopped


  • Slice the cauliflower head in half and use a knife to remove all the florets. Cut some of the larger florets into smaller pieces so they'll fit within the chute of your food processor.
  • Insert the grater adapter into your food processor and start feeding the cauliflower florets through the top. Depending on the size of your food processor, you may have to empty it halfway through.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan and sauté the diced onion and garlic for a few minutes, until its translucent.
  • Add the cauliflower rice to the pan and sauté for another 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add in the lime juice, lime zest and chopped cilantro. Toss everything together and serve immediately!
