I’ve been having fun making recipes using cauliflower rice as a replacement for traditional white rice, as well as also creating new ones.
The thing about cauliflower rice is that it doesn’t taste like cauliflower – so don’t worry if you don’t really like cauliflower.
It’s a really good grain-free substitute for rice and very, very similar in texture.
Is This Cilantro and Lime Cauliflower Rice Recipe Medical Medium Compliant?
This easy recipe is very filling and made with nutrient-dense ingredients like healthy fat from the avocado oil, fiber-rich organic cauliflower, detoxifying cilantro, and alkalizing lime juice.
If you’re trying to reduce the number of fats in your diet (even healthy fats like avocado oil) while following the Medical Medium healing protocol, just reduce the amount of avocado oil listed in the recipe.
What Does Medical Medium Have To Say About Cilantro?
“Not only does this herb bind onto toxic heavy metals; its undiscovered phytochemical compounds also cling to other troublemakers – such as neurotoxins and dermatoxins that commonly end up inside our liver – then expel them safely from our bodies. Cilantro is both a great liver cleansing and liver building herb. It helps regenerate nerve tissue around the liver – precious nerve tissue that sends out messages from our brains to communicate with our livers.” – Medical Medium | Liver Rescue
Do I Use Fresh or Frozen Cauliflower?
You can use either!
I like to use frozen organic cauliflower rice because I always have 4-5 bags in my freezer at all times (and because I’m lazy!).
But you can also use fresh cauliflower and make your own cauliflower rice by adding cut cauliflower florets to a food processor and processing it until it turns into a rice-type consistency.
You’ll want to make sure to squeeze out any excess water from the cauliflower rice before using it.
And, if you just don’t like cauliflower rice at all, you can still make this recipe using regular organic white rice.
How Can I Serve Cilantro and Lime Cauliflower Rice?
You can serve it as a side dish with a meal or just by itself for a quick lunch – which happens to be my favorite way to eat it.
Another way to enjoy it is in a wrap – like a gluten-free tortilla, with romaine lettuce or even collard green leaves.
