Coconut Lime Rice

Coconut Lime Rice

Coconut lime rice anyone? Everything about this zesty recipe sounds delicious! Rice makes a great side dish to almost any meal, especially for summer BBQs. Its super versatile, even when its cauliflower. Ricing cauliflower is a great way to get that rice base and taste without eating grains. Pairing your traditional cauliflower rice with coconut and lime gives it an added zing. This dish is perfect for long work days at the office because you can bring it heat it up and eat it while you work or eat it cool. Overall, love this recipe!

  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
