Ingredients

  • 2 Heads of Cauliflower
  • 4 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 4 small red Onion finely chopped
  • 12 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 4 Pimentos or Jalapenos finely chopped (depending on spice preference)
  • 8 medium Tomatoes finely chopped
  • 3 cup diced Bell Peppers
  • 4 teaspoon Cumin powder
  • 2 teaspoon Paprika powder, Cayenne powder or Red Chili powder
  • 4 tablespoons Cilantro

  • One can Black Beans (washed)
  • Jalapenos, Avocado, Cilantro as topping
  • Tomatillo Salsa (I used prepared salsa this time)

Directions

  1. Break Cauliflower into florets and add to a food processor or chopper and pulse till the cauliflower resembles small bits (like rice). Make sure not to go all the way or it can turn mushy.
  2. Heat Coconut oil in a pan and add onions, garlic and jalapenos/pimentos. Stir fry for a few minutes till the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Add tomatoes, cumin powder, paprika/cayenne powder and salt to the pan. Cook the tomatoes for a few minutes till they soften.
  4. Add the diced bell peppers and cauliflower rice to the pan and mix well. Stir fry the cauliflower for 3-4 minutes till it’s tender.
  5. Separate into multiple containers for multiple meals.
  6. Top with your favourite toppings including Avocado, Black Beans, Cilantro etc. and serve hot.
