Why am I barbecuing when it is 108° outside?? Sounds crazy but sometimes you just want a typical summer-time meal. Tonight it is grilled cilantro lime chicken (for me), carne asada (for Ken), grilled then pan fried green beans and a Mexican/Spanish style riced cauliflower.

Cilantro Lime Chicken Marinade

  • Juice from two limes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • handful of chopped cilantro
  • minced garlic clove
  • 1/2 diced jalapeno

Carne Asada

  • 1 lb flank steak
  • juice of one blood orange
  • juice of one lime
  • 1/2 diced jalapeno
  • handful of chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
Ingredients for Carne Asada


Mexican/Spanish Cauliflower Rice

  • 1 head cauliflower riced
  • 3/4 c chicken broth
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion
  • 2 handfuls cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp saffron
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp salt (I used combo of sea salt and red wine sea salt)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • handful chopped cilantro

Cook onions, tomatoes, spices in olive oil until onions are soft. Add cauliflower and broth and cook for 15-20 min until cauliflower is tender. Add cilantro and serve.
