Zesty Cauliflower Rice Pilaf with Toasted Almonds and Golden Raisins


Description

This zesty cauliflower rice pilaf is made easy with Mann’s cauliflower “rice” for a delicious and flavorful side dish!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups Mann’s cauliflower “rice”
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • ½ cup chopped almonds
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper

 


Instructions

  1. Optional step: soak the raisins in hot water for 30 minutes to allow them to re-hydrate and plump up to result in a softer texture.
  2. In a large saute pan, toast the almonds over medium heat until slightly golden and fragrant, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Add the olive oil and saute the garlic for about 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the cauliflower rice, almonds, green onions and raisins. Saute for about 8 minutes, until the cauliflower is more of a translucent color and cooked through. Remove from the heat and add the lemon zest, juice, salt and pepper.
  3. Serve warm or chilled. Store in the refrigerator for up to four days.
