Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower separated into florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion  diced
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed or minced
  • 3 tbsp capers drained; more to taste
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 lemon juiced; more to taste
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Lemon zest for serving
  • Fresh parsley or other herbs, for serving

Instructions

  • Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor or blender and pulse until they resemble rice-like pieces. You may need to scrape the sides occasionally.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add the onions, mushroom, and garlic and cook for 5-7 minutes or until tender. Add the riced cauliflower, capers, oregano, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few more minutes, until warmed through.
  • Serve with lemon zest and fresh parsley or other herbs. Enjoy warm or cold!

Notes

  • To make larger pieces, pulse the cauliflower in batches in the food processor.
  • You can easily sub store-bought or frozen riced cauliflower instead of making your own. Add it frozen to the skillet after you cook the mushrooms and onion and cook until warmed through.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy cold, or reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  • Serve on the side of a lean protein, or use this recipe to make bowls with feta cheese, shredded chicken or turkey, and/or white beans for a more complete meal.
