Spanish Cauliflower Rice

Ingredients

  • 1 package cauliflower rice (I use Trader Joes and mine had ~3 cups)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1 small jalapeño, diced (optional)
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2/3 cup cherry tomatoes, diced (any tomato will work, but this is what I had on hand)
  • 2 tsp Sugarfree Carne Asada spice mix
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth (chicken will also work, I just prefer vegetable broth in my rice)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil for cooking

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet (10-12 in. so that there's room to mix the rice) to medium-high. Add 3 tbsp of olive oil.
  2. Add onions, peppers, garlic, and tomatoes. Saute for 3-4 minutes or until all vegetables are tender
  3. Add cauliflower, spices, and tomato paste. Stir then cook for 3-4 minutes until the cauliflower is slightly orange.
  4. Add broth and continue to cook for 3-4 more minutes or until the rice is tender enough for you. 

I paired this with sirloin steak that spent a few hours marinating in my Carne Asada Marinade
