Mealthy Tip

Once you master making cauliflower rice, try out different flavor combinations: use a pinch of saffron, lemon juice and chopped white onion for a Mediterranean version, or use the aromatics in this recipe with the addition of chopped fresh ginger for an Asian-inspired take.

Cilantro lime anything is great... And this dish delivered! I topped this dish with a big dollop of Greek yogurt and hot sauce, yum!

I wish I liked cauliflower rice more than I do, but I don't. The flavors here are fine, but I simply prefer rice. My wife, however, wants the cauliflower rice for dietary reasons, so we'll continue to make it because she loved it. I'm making a smaller side of rice-rice, though . . .

Been going in an out of the Whole30 diet and this is a staple recipe I go to when I want whip up something quick and easy that will pair well with pretty much any protein I cook. This allows me to get my fix when I want to go out and get a fast food rice bowl, but it's not cheat day. I like to top this "rice" off with some chipotle shrimp or steak slices.

Not a huge fan of cauliflower rice in general. I don't know what happens but once it's pulsed down into little pieces, the flavor profile changes. Still, this recipe actually tastes. I just added extra lime, cilantro and salt. Plus garlic!

this is definitely a good alternative to rice. The texture isn't the normal fluffy soft like rice but i would make this again. A little sauted garlic and green onions would do this justice as well
