Some of my kid’s favorite meals us cauliflower rice  – and they know it’s not white rice!

If using a whole cauliflower, cut the head of cauliflower into medium pieces and throw away the core. Work in batches, pulse the chunks in a food processor with the S-blade until you’re left with tiny pieces.

Wrap the cauliflower rice in a clean muslin towel and twist, and squeeze as much water as possible from the rice.

 

 

Add the olive oil to a pan with the garlic cloves on medium heat.

Stir constantly for about 20-30 until the garlic is fragrant. You don’t want to burn the garlic.

Add the green beans and corn to the pan.  Toss it for few seconds, and then add the cauliflower rice, zaatar spice mix, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper and stir to combine.

 

 

Stir frequently until the rice is hot and turns golden – about 7 to 10 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the tahini, coriander leaves, and lemon juice.

 

 

Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve warm.
