Low Carb Mexican "Rice"

Submitted by: METVAN

Introduction

Like the fried rice, this is made with shredded cauliflower and tastes very much like spanish/mexican rice. Goes great with the Chili Relleno Casserole

This heated up fine the next day, but not sure it would last too much longer than that.

Directions

1. Using the largest set of holes on your grater, grate the cauliflower and set aside.
2. Heat EVOO in pan on med high heat and add onions and bell peppers. When they are softened and browned slightly, add the garlic and stir allowing to cook another minute or so.
3. Add the cauliflower and stir to coat with mixture in the pan.
4. Add tomatoes and some of the liquid. I crush the tomatoes in my hand as I add them to the pan rather than try to chop them up (much faster). add just enough liquid to moisten the mixture and help the cauliflower cook. You don't want to water it down too much.
5. Stir in the spanish rice seasoning and cook until cauliflower is soft, but still somewhat firm as you don't want it to turn to mush.
