    Grain Free Romanesco Rice with Cilantro and Lime

    Skipping grains and gluten shouldn’t mean giving up your favourite textures and tastes. Invite verdant romanesco—a spiky, broccoli-like cruciferous vegetable—into your kitchen to stand in for rice tonight.

    Tip: This dish is served raw, but it can be made into a warm side dish by sautéing the minced romanesco with olive oil until heated through; stir in remaining ingredients off the heat.
