Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Coconut Cauliflower Rice

My friend Jess forever changed cauliflower rice (and any ‘ole white rice) for me when she added plantains to a stir-fried rice we made one night during the early days of the Quarantine.

I jazzed up today’s recipe of Coconut Cauliflower Rice with Plantains, Cilantro and Chopped Cilantro. Inspired by Jess, made by Lisa 😉

This recipe is delicious on its own, or you can add teriyaki veggies and tofu, fish and veg cooked in coconut curry, or that sticky honey-glazed shrimp recipe I posted the other day!

  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 plantain or banana, diced
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • salt to taste
  • Step 1 Add the cauliflower and coconut milk to a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Let simmer for 5 minutes. Add the plantain and combine with the cauliflower. Cook another until 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You may need to increase the heat to low. Cook until the cauliflower and plantain are cooked to your liking
