Cauliflower Rice Nicoise


  • 1 medium head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup black olives pitted and halved
  • 2 cups heirloom or beefsteak tomatoes chopped (try to remove as many seeds and moisture as you can)
  • 3 tablespoons capers
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh oregano chopped


  • 1. To make the cauliflower rice, you can either grate the cauliflower on a box grater to form rice-like grains, or you can process it in two batches in your food processor, pulsing with the S blade till it resembles rice. When you're finished, transfer the rice to a large mixing bowl.
  • 2. Add the olives, tomatoes, capers, lemon juice, oil, and oregano. Give everything a toss.
  • 3. Serve, garnished with some fresh chives, if desired.
