The announcement came earlier this week. "Chipotle fans have been craving more plant-powered, better-for-you options that align with the latest health trends and emphasize the benefits of real food," said Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer. "That's why we are thrilled to offer cauliflower rice nationally and help our fans achieve their diet or lifestyle goals."
The grain substitute is made with freshly grilled riced cauliflower, fresh cilantro, lime, and salt. It has a similar taste to their iconic cilantro-lime rice, but this time, it’s made from the popular cruciferous vegetable. Not only that, but this new “rice” is 100% vegan and keto-friendly, with just four grams of net carbs per serving!
Chipotle’s cilantro-lime cauliflower rice is available for a limited time only and costs an additional $2. We’d recommend trying it in their Vegan Bowl which comes with the new cauliflower rice alongside black beans, sofritas (tofu), fresh tomato salsa, roasted chili-corn salsa, and romaine lettuce. Oh, and extra guac if you’re feeling fancy!
When Allie responded to an Instagram post on @vegoutlosangeles a few years ago, she had no idea she’d join the coolest vegan team on the planet. An Austin native, actress, yogi, and part-time sword fighter (don’t ask!), Allie is on a mission to live her best life and inspire others to do the same. She graduated from Hussian College In Studio with a B.F.A. in Contemporary Musical Theatre + Film and currently acts, writes, and eats her way through Los Angeles.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
