Cauliflower rice is cooked in butter with garlic and spinach for a healthy, delicious and very easy side dish. This is a perfect side dish for chicken or fish, and it’s done in about 15 minutes.

I don’t really know what more to say about this than that I am crazy in love with cauliflower rice. I really AM! It’s SO good. Better than rice, and better than non-riced cauliflower… does that even make ANY sense? It does to me.

Few of my favorites include, Coconut Lime Cauliflower Rice, Honey Sriracha Chicken with Cauliflower Rice, as well as Shrimp Fried Cauliflower Rice – YUM!

I have a 9 year old that pretty much hates food – well, food that is NOT chocolate and cereal – but she devoured this cauliflower rice, caveman style.

I served it with my Juicy Stove Top Chicken Thighs, and it was just the ideal meal during one of our busy, soccer-filled weeknights.

  • Add the cauliflower rice, chili powder, salt, and pepper; stir and cook for 2 minutes, or until tender.
  • Add a little vegetable broth, lime juice, baby spinach, and continue to stir  until spinach is wilted and liquid evaporated.
  • Remove from heat; taste for seasonings and adjust accordingly.
