This Mexican Cauliflower Rice is healthy low-carb version of the classic Mexican side dish!
I love my Authentic Mexican Rice recipe. It is one of my favorite Mexican recipes ever. The only problem that I have with the recipe is the white rice. It tends to spike my blood sugar since I’m hypoglycemic. Now I wait until a special occasion or holiday to make my Authentic Mexican Rice recipe.
I’m so excited that I finally found a way to have my Mexican rice recipe on a weekly basis! Cauliflower rice is used in place of white rice and I think that I like healthier version just a little bit more! I simply use my food processor to grate the cauliflower until it resembles rice sized pieces. For this recipe I used one large head of cauliflower, but you can also use riced cauliflower at that store.
The Mexican Cauliflower Rice is seasoned the same way as my regular Mexican rice. First cook the cauliflower rice in a little bit of oil. Then I blend a tomato, white onion, garlic and salt. This tomato mixture gets poured over the cauliflower rice and continues cooking until the liquid has been absorbed. It’s so easy and delicious!
Serve this Mexican Cauliflower Rice alongside your next Mexican dinner!
