Grilling season is upon us, which means wasting time skewering vegetables on stupid sticks of wood, just to burn your hands un-skewering them afterward (forks are for amateurs).

THERE MUST BE A BETTER WAY.

Get yourself one of these bad boys.

Heat it up right on the grill, wipe it with some avocado oil, and toss the veggies on for grilled perfection.

I really miss Mexican food. Pico de gallo. Tortilla chips. Salsa. Cheese. This recipe is a far cry from Mexican food, but it’s got lime and fake rice, so we’ll call it a recipe in the spirit of Mexican food.

  • 1 head cauliflower, riced
  • zest from 1 lime
  • 3/4 pound pastured boneless,
    skinless chicken thighs,
    cut into 1.5-in pieces
  • 2 Portabella mushrooms
    cut into 1.5-in pieces
  • 1 small red onion,
    cut into 1.5-in pieces
  • 2 limes, cut into 8 pieces each
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Himalayan sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Oil for the grill
  • Wedges of lime for serving

PREHEAT a grill and grill pan to medium heat.

COOK the cauliflower rice in the microwave in a covered dish for 5 minutes. Let sit for another 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Fold in the lime zest.

MEANWHILE, in a large bowl, toss the chicken, mushrooms, onion, and limes with the oil, cumin, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Lightly oil the grill pan on the grill, using a folded paper towel. Grill the chicken and veggie mixture, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the onion is just tender, 15-18 minutes. Serve with rice and lime wedges.
