Cauliflower is perhaps one of the most versatile vegetables. You can roast it, make a pizza, make a sauce, make wings, and make bites of all other varieties. Best of all, you can make cauliflower rice, which is a million more times filling than the standard rice as it packs more fiber, and more nutrients to boot! This Spanish-inspired cauliflower rice dish is packed with flavor, heat, and the refreshing bite of lime and cilantro.

Spanish Cauliflower Rice [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

6 cups

Cook Time

25

Ingredients

  • 1 large head cauliflower, shredded or finely ground
  • 1/2 red onion, shredded or diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, shredded or minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup black beans, rinsed
  • 1 jalapeño or serrano chili, halved (optional), or substitute 1 small can of diced green chilis
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1 lime
  • 2 sprigs of cilantro
  • 1 avocado

Preparation

  1. Shred cauliflower in a food processor by pulsing until finely ground into pieces slightly larger than cooked rice. Dice onion, jalapeño, and mince garlic.
  2. Heat a large sauté pan or skillet over medium heat, add olive oil, garlic, jalapeño, chili powder, and salt. Cook for a minute to flavor the oil. Increase the heat to high, add onion, and cook until translucent. Then add black beans and cook for a few minutes before adding adobo sauce, lime juice, and lastly cauliflower.
  3. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring often, until the moisture is evaporated and the cauliflower is light and fluffy. Strain if needed. Top with lime juice, avocado, and cilantro.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
