This isn't a raw rice dish, but rather raw cauliflower taking the shape of rice. Cauliflower "rice" is a great substitute for regular rice, or other grains in some recipes whenever you’d like a lighter, grain-free option. This dish is so easy to make and so delicious (and pretty)! The combination of all the flavors of this dish are very well balanced and who doesn’t like Mexican spices?
