Number of Servings: 4


    5 cups Taylor Farms Cauliflower Pearls or 5 cups grated
    1 very small onion, minced (about 1/3 cup)
    1/4 cup sweet red pepper, minced
    2 tsp or 2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 Tbsp Cento Double-Concentrated Tomato Paste
    1 tsp Better Than Bouillion Reduced Sodium Chicken Base
    1/4 cup water
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp ground oregano
    2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp Chipotle Chili Powder
    1 1/2 tsp Chili powder


Grate the cauliflower or pulse in food processor until the basic size of rice. Microwave in a covered glass dish about 3-4 minutes depending on your microwave and how tender you want your "rice."

In a skillet over medium heat, saute onion, pepper, and garlic about a minute. Depending on how nonstick your pan is, you might need to add a few tablespoons of water to keep them from sticking. Add tomato paste, chicken base, 1/4 cup of water, and all seasonings.

Simmer down until almost all the water is evaporated and then stir into the cooked cauliflower. Serve hot.

Serving Size:  Makes 4 servings (about 1 cup each)
