Today, I have one of my beautiful friends, Merilyn Clay sharing one of her favorite recipes. This recipe is adapted from www.Deliciousobsessions.com Merilyn belongs to our Fit To Serve cell group and has lost over 12 lbs. in a little under two months. The journey to go low-carb has not been difficult for her. However, we all have something we miss from our days high carb days. Rice was what she missed the most. As a Costa Rica native, rice is a staple food. When she came across this wonderful recipe that helped quench that craving, she felt compelled to share. So proud of Merilyn for making the necessary changes to get her health in optimal shape!
Garlic Herb Lime Cauliflower Rice
1 head of cauliflower
½ cup chopped cilantro
½ cup chopped parsley
5-10 garlic cloves
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste
Coconut oil for sautéing
Finely dice the garlic cloves and herbs. Remove the core steam of the cauliflower and break into smaller chunks. In a food processor or box grater. Process or grate the cauliflower until it’s the size of rice. Then heat a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil in a large sauté pan. Cook the garlic cloves until very light brown, add the cauli-rice and stir until coated with the oil.
You may need to add more oil to make sure the cauli-rice is coated well. Next place a lid on the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes. Add the herbs, and cover the pan again. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Lastly, add salt and pepper to taste and toss the juice of a lime. Store leftovers in the fridge. Enjoy hot or cold!
