A grain-free alternative to restaurant-style cilantro lime rice, this sautéed Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice recipe  is the perfect soy-free, gluten-free side to any meal! And it’s super-easy to make, too! {Paleo and Vegan}


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  1. Break cauliflower into florets, add to a vegetable chopper, and pulsate until florets resemble rice. Do not over-chop.
  2. In a deep saucepan, combine cauliflower pieces and coconut oil. Sauté on medium heat, evenly coating cauliflower. Add more coconut oil, if desired.
  3. Add sea salt and stir.
  4. Mix in green onions and continue sautéing.
  5. Just as you reach the desired cauliflower rice consistency, add the cilantro and lime juice. Sauté just long enough to coat cilantro and evenly blend lime juice.
  6. Serve immediately or store up to 24 hours in the fridge.
