Cook the rice
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Mince the garlic. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot; season with ⅓ of the spice blend.

Prepare & roast the cauliflower
While the rice cooks, remove and discard the cauliflower core; cut the head into small florets. In a large bowl, combine the flour and ¾ cup water (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Whisk until smooth. Add the cauliflower florets; toss to coat evenly. Add the coated cauliflower to a lined sheet pan drizzled with oil. Roast in the oven, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from the oven; drizzle with oil and continue roasting, without flipping, 12 to 14 minutes. Switch the oven to broil and continue roasting, 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown.

Mise en place
While the cauliflower roasts, cut the lime into 6 wedges. Quarter the cherry tomatoes. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottom and green top. Finely chop the cilantro leaves and stems.

Make the pico de gallo
In a small bowl, combine juice from ⅓ of the lime wedges, as much of the white bottom of the scallion as you’d like and a drizzle of oil; season with S&P to taste. Add the cherry tomatoes and up to ½ the cilantro (to taste). Toss well.

Divide the finished rice between your plates. Top with the crispy cauliflower, pico de gallo and a spoonful of the avocado crema vinaigrette.
