Creamy Avocado Cauliflower Rice

If you love grains but know you need more vegetables, then this is your dish. If you find yourself wondering why some foods never seem to be as healthy as they are comforting, then this is your dish. If you find yourself thinking a recipe that’s filling without being heavy would be desirable, then this is your dish. Among the many reasons Creamy Avocado Cauliflower Rice is so amazing is that while the cauliflower provides a light, healthy base, the avocado provides a filling but healthy complement. It’s a win-win situation. Not to mention, lime, cilantro, garlic, and a dash of cracked pepper mean this recipe is out-of-this-world tantalizing.
