Let’s face it, eating the same steamed rice dish week-in and week-out can be boring. Good for you, but boring isn’t exactly a winning combination. It doesn’t make you want to march into the kitchen and get your meal on. So, if you want to still enjoy all the benefits of a light meal, but have it packed with fiber and enough to satisfies your carb cravings, why not try something that easily works as a side for your Mexican night fair or makes perfect sense for your Middle Eastern night or can stand on its own for your light and scrumptious meal?
We’re talking about dressing up your favorite grain with flair. Add some key ingredients to make it shine. This version of cauliflower rice is an ode to our favorite Chipotle-style rice. It’s made with plenty of garlic, onions, lime, and cumin to spice up your meal and is by far THE best way to enjoy a Paleo-friendly dinner or side dish without any guilt. Enjoy it with any variety of main dishes like garam masala. Add it to a garam masala vegetable soup, and you’ll hit a home run every time. Or if you’re feeling brave, why not pair it with another Paleo-friendly dish like the Cantonese crispy chicken things and call it good?
The list of Paleo dishes is endless. Experiment a little. You’re sure to find a flavor combination you love. Take a tour of the world with scrumptious steamy cauliflower rice combinations.
Here’s another you’re guaranteed to want to eat for every meal: Cumin Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice. We kid you not. You’ll want to eat this dish over and over again.
