What’s in Cauliflower Rice?
All the good stuff! Really it’s a question of adding the vegetables you have in your fridge. Anything goes. Toss in what you have and what you love. Here’s what I used, but think of this as a suggestion and don’t be constrained. Fresh herbs and citrus, however, will always add freshness and flavor so try to include them whenever possible.
Adding a can of beans or lentils is a great idea as it provides an easy source of protein.
- black beans
- garden peas
- fresh cilantro
- chopped cashews
- green onions
How do you make Cauliflower Rice?
It couldn’t be easier! You just toss everything together in the pan, give it a good stir and add your seasonings. Squeeze over some lime juice and sprinkle over some herbs. That’s it! Quick, delicious, and simple!
