This Spanish Cauliflower Rice is not only easy to make but so healthy and packed with veggies!

Please tell me you have had cauliflower rice… the stuff is sweeping the nation!!  I first heard about it and tried it back at the end of 2015 and it saved me during my first Whole30 in 2016.  I actually was never a huge lover of rice but having a vegetable that could take on so many different flavors and fill my bowl and tummy with nutrients was a game changer in the way I ate.  By now I have posted many variations – Cauliflower Fried Rice, Mexican Cauliflower Rice, and even used it in my Italian Beef & Cauliflower Rice Soup!  So of course in honor of Cinco de Mayo coming up this Saturday, I had to make another cauliflower rice dish that will go fabulously with all the tacos – Spanish Cauliflower Rice!  Using simple ingredients and flavors this rice is totally transformed and absolutely delicious.

Today I am partnering with Ocean Mist Farms and using their delicious cauliflower!  Ocean Mist Farms are makes so much incredible produce – and you know its good because I just saw at the new Cava (my fave fast casual restaurant) that they are using Ocean Mist produce in their line up. VERY exciting.  Or I am I the only one that genuinely gets excited about produce? 🙂

So tell me – what is your favorite way to enjoy cauliflower rice?  Let me know in the comments below and if you have a fave I haven’t tried yet, I’ll be sure to add it to my never ending list!!

    I make a random stir-fry with cauli rice almost nightly. Lately its included zucchini, carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms, chicken, an egg, liquid aminos, tapatio and what ever spices strike my fancy when I open the cabinet.

    I used riced cauliflower once with eggs to make a tortilla for fish tacos. They were so yummy! Also used jicama on the taco!! Can’t wait to try this recipe!
