So, think of your favorite dish. Can you add a bit of cauliflower to it? Yup, you can. There’s even cauliflower pizza these days. My point, there’s a lot of things you can do with cauliflower and it’s really healthy for you.

I’m sharing this recipe because lately, life has been so crazy. So, I decided to try several types of pre-made riced cauliflowers to save time. But in the end, I was disappointed. It can be very expensive to buy pre-made items and I’m pretty sure I disliked one so much it made me sick. Which means it was not a good use of my money. As a mom of 4, I’ve got no time for wasting money or food.

I was tempted by the idea of easy but in the end, it was so much better when I made my own Cauliflower Rice at home.
