Spiced Cauliflower Rice with Beef Filet

The Cauliflower Rice is such a great carb-free alternative to Rice and gives so many benefits from fiber, vitamins, calcium, and more!  It is lightly spiced with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Chili Powder.  The Petite Filet is tender and has all of the great flavor you get from Filet Mignon without the high price tag.  Last, but not least, drizzle the buttery, delicious Avocado Crema over top and enjoy!

Avocado Crema

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Tbls Sour Cream

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F

Prepare the Petite Beef Filets

  1. On a sheet pan (lined with aluminum foil for easy clean up!) place the Petite Beef Filets.  Very simply season with a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, salt and pepper and then rub it all around all sides.

  2. Turn the oven to broiling and place the beef under the broiler on the top rack for 5 minutes.  Take the beef out and turn over and broil for another 5 minutes.  Then turn the oven back to 375 degrees F and move the beef down to the center rack.  Cook for another 10-15 minutes until medium rare (140 degrees internal temp)

Spiced Cauliflower Rice

  1. Break off 6 cups of cauliflower florets and place into a food processor. Then pulse until you get tiny pieces that resemble rice.

    Making cauliflower rice at home is so simple with a food processor! This is great in this Cheesy Cauliflower Rice Recipe!
  2. Pour the Cauliflower Rice onto a sheet pan and add the Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Chili Powder with a drizzle of Olive Oil and then toss with fork or with your fingers to mix. Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed, but be careful not to over-season as the flavors cook down and get deeper with the roasting. 

  3. Then spread the ‘rice” out into a thin layer and place in preheated oven.
  4. Roast for 10 minutes, then toss and spread evenly again and roast another 10min.

Make Avocado Crema

  1. Half an avocado and remove seed, then scoop avocado out into a mini food processor.  Add sour cream and a dash of garlic powder, salt, and fresh ground pepper.  Blend until creamy smooth.  Taste and add more seasonings to taste.

Plate and Enjoy!
