  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Avocado Oil is a good alternative)
  • 2 Shallots, diced
  • 2 bags Frozen Cauliflower Rice (about 5 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro, chopped (Dill or Parsley is a good alternative as well)


  • Add oil to a large sauté pan.
  • Next add the shallots and cook in the pan over high heat. Cook the shallots until translucent, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Next add the cauliflower rice to the pan and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat. Add the salt, garlic powder and cilantro to the pan then stir to combine.


  • This recipe uses prepackaged cauliflower rice however you can make cauliflower rice by using a high-speed blender or food processor. I find that it’s best to do it in small batches so you don’t end up with part cauliflower mash and part cauliflower rice.
  • This recipe goes really well with my Baked Italian Meatballs. In fact, I have an AIP Meal Prep recipe that features both dishes.
