Cauliflower rice week

I had picked up a bag of fresh cauliflower rice this week and there were plenty of new and old recipes to try.

First there was spicy southwestern cauliflower rice recipe

Then there was cauliflower rice puttananesca

Then there was stir fried veges with cauliflower rice

All turned out great and perfect for weekday lunch choices!

Cauliflower rice puttanesca

I had some tomato sauce left after using half in zoodles and went looking for a new recipe to try with ingredients I had readily available. I chanced upon this one and it was perfect for that quick lunch on a weekday.

Here’s how I made mine.


2 cups of fresh organic cauliflower rice

1 cup home made tomato sauce

some fresh green onions

2 cloves minced garlic

olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

some crushed red pepper flakes

some fresh basil leaves

Can also add some cheese

Check here for the tomato sauce recipe.

Heat 1-2 tsp oil in a pan. Add sliced green onions and garlic and fry lightly. Add cauliflower rice and fry for 5-6 minutes. Add sauce and continue frying for another 6-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer to a bowl. Toss in pickled olives, capers, pepperoncini, and asparagus. Turned out delicious especially with a side of olive bread and baklava!

Quick Lunch Series: Mexican Cauliflower Rice

Since I discovered Cauliflower rice, I have been enjoying trying different recipes. My favorite so far is the Cauliflower Fried Rice I posted previously.

Whenever I bring a bag of Cauliflower rice, I usually try a couple of recipes. This time wasn’t different. This recipe is loosely based on this one.


1 1/4 cups of Cauliflower Rice
1/2 cup diced orange and yellow peppers
1-2 tbsp chopped onion
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 jalapeno, chopped
1 tomato chopped
olive oil
salt to taste
dash of cumin
dash of paprika
lemon juice
chopped cilantro

Saute onion, garlic and jalapeno in a pan till lightly golden. Add tomatoes, salt, paprika and cumin and cook for another few minutes. Add peppers & cauliflower rice and continue cooking on a low flame for 5-10 minutes or longer until cooked, and the moisture evaporates.

Drizzle lemon juice and garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve warm with sliced avocado, sour cream, and pico del gayo.

Perfect for a workday lunch!
