Ingredients

  • 4 cups Cauliflower riced
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 cup Onion finely diced
  • 1 Jalapeño seeded and finely diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • Cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and jalapeño, and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the garlic for the last minute and stir often.
  • Add the cauliflower and sauté for 3 minutes until just slightly tender to taste.
  • Add cumin, smoke paprika, salt, and pepper. Create a small well in the middle of your pan and drop in the tomato paste. Let it set for a few seconds until the thick paste begins to thin in the heat. Stir to coat the rice and cook for 2 minutes until heated through. 
  • Add some chopped cilantro and serve.

Notes

You can also add more heat by using more chopped jalapeño. To add a bit more color to the dish you can use a little finely chopped red pepper (add with the onion).
