A simple one pan cauliflower rice recipe with sliced jalapenos, onions, cilantro, and lime juice.
- 1 small onion sliced thin
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 large cauliflower or ready-made cauliflower rice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil/butter
- 3 large jalapeno sliced
- ½ cup fresh cilantro
- ⅓ cup lime juice from 2 fresh limes
- salt and pepper to taste
If using fresh cauliflower, rice using one of the methods outlined in the post above (food processor, box grater, knife).
Heat butter/olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add sliced onions, cumin, and garlic, fry for 2-3 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
Next add in riced cauliflower and sliced jalapenos, combine well. Season liberally with salt and fry for 10-15 minutes until the cauliflower rice is tender and slightly al dente. Stir occasionally and add butter/olive oil as needed to prevent burning.
Right before serving, stir in fresh cilantro and lime juice, season to taste.
Leftovers and Reheating: Store leftovers sealed in the fridge for use within a week. To reheat, use a microwave, oven, or a pan with some butter on the stove. Control the Heat and Spice Level by removing some or all of the white membrane and seeds from the jalapenos.
