• 1 small head cauliflower, grated/riced (~ 4 cups)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 2 medium roma tomatoes, small dice
  • ½ jalapeno, seeds and membrane removed, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped


Shred the cauliflower in a food processor using the grater disk (the attachment with the holes, not the blade). Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onions, tomatoes and jalapeno and sauté until just tender, about 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cauliflower, sauté until the cauliflower is just tender, about 2 minutes.
Add the tomato paste, cumin, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper. Stir to evenly coat the vegetables and cook for 1 minute or until heated through. Add chopped cilantro and serve.
