Directions

  1. Place the cauliflower in a food processor or blender and pulse until it resembles rice. Transfer cauliflower rice to a bowl. Add water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high power for 5-7 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Whisk together brown sugar, salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the onion and bell pepper. Sauté for 7-10 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften and char around the edges. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add seasoning mix and lime juice. Season, to taste, with additional salt and pepper.
  3. To serve, divide cauliflower rice between four bowls. Top with vegetables, black beans, cheese, salsa and guacamole. Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro leaves.
