This Coconut Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice is my favorite way to eat cauliflower! It tastes so fresh and pairs perfectly with grilled chicken, steak, or seafood. It’s also gluten free, paleo, and Whole30 friendly! I’ve included a recipe for regular rice, as well.

Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice

Coconut Cilantro Lime anything is my love language! I used to actually hate cilantro (I thought it tasted like soap LOL), but now I love it. Funny how our tastes can change over time! This Coconut Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice & Regular Rice are one of my favorite sides. We usually switch it up…if I am looking to keep things lower carb and Whole30 we use caulirice, and sometimes I like the real thing.

Either way, both of these pair so well with my Whole30 Chicken Tikka Masala, Whole30 Coconut Thai Turkey Meatballs, Beef & Pineapple Kabobs, and Lemon Dill Grilled Shrimp among many others!

What Ingredients Do I need to Make this Coconut Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice?

  • Cauliflower Rice – I like to get the pack of 5 – 16 oz frozen bags at Costco!
  • Regular Rice (If using) – You can use regular white rice, jasmine rice, basmati, etc.
  • Coconut Milk – It’s important to use full fat coconut milk. I like to use Thai Kitchen brand.
  • Cilantro
  • Limes

That’s it! Super simple. I like to double the recipe to make enough for my family of 5.
