This cauliflower rice recipe is seasoned with fresh herbs, lemon juice and Feta cheese. This easy cauliflower rice recipe is deliciously mixed with ribbon-cut zucchini and tangy Feta cheese.
Influenced by tabbouleh, the Middle Eastern dish of fresh herbs and bulghur wheat, I wanted something similar but made with cauliflower rice for a low carb and grain free option. The texture of the cauliflower rice is almost like couscous in texture. You would not think you are eating cauliflower, due to the herbs and lemon seasoning.
How to serve herbed cauliflower rice
Whilst you could serve this cauliflower rice with just the lemon and herbs I added ribbons of grilled zucchini and Feta cheese. You could add more vegetables to the rice or a few olives too. Add more zucchini ribbons but mix them into the cauliflower salad.
I ate a bowl of this by itself, but the Chief Taster had this as a side dish with my Salmon Pesto Parmesan.
Add slices of cucumber for a refreshing dish.
I served this with grilled zucchini ribbons on top but you could mix them into the cauliflower rice mixture
