Have you heard? Cali-rice is the word!
Yep! It’s a bandwagon and I’m hopping on it, if you’d like to join 🙂
Califlower rice is very up and coming, and I’m sure you’ve seen many ways to use it.
Just to name a few ways that cali-rice is used to replace not-as-great for you ingredients– breadsticks, fried rice, mashed potatoes… yum! Sign.Me.Up.
But if you’re like me, you’d just like some good dang rice- am I right?
That’s why I’ve created this tasty side. I love sides that are versatile and can be used in a few different dishes!
The Best Dang Rice (Cali-style)
1/2 head califlower, riced
handful of cilantro
salt & pepper to taste
If you’ve never “riced” califlower– just chop it up and process in a food processor until it looks like this:
Place in a skillet with some oil of choice- I used olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
After rice has softened, squeeze 1 lime and add chopped cilantro, mix well and remove from heat.
Best served warm with chicken and my favorite- roasted broccoli!
I’ve also had with shrimp and inside soups that call for rice.
Califlower for the win!
