This is a low carb version of Mexican rice. It is very easy to throw together and very tasty, especially if you use homemade salsa. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I think next time I ll try to improvise my own salsa as mine tasted distinctly like Tostitos. I like the grated cauliflower idea since we get a ton from our CSA and I can only make so much stir fry and curry dishes... Read More

I used a food processor to rice the cauliflower. Added no salt or pepper. The salsa and green onions were perfect! Thanks for the great EASY recipe. Read More

I'm not doing carbs or most dairy at the moment so this was a welcome find. I have made it once with curry and once with garlic seasoning next time might try cumin or coriander as we love spices! served with the Lemon Butter Chicken recipe from this site so good. cook it longer and it's more like a mashed squash consistency or less for chewy/crunchy. def in the rotation thanks!

Easy to make. I did use a food processor which made it very easy! The salsa and green onions gave the cauliflower a nice distinct but not overwhelming flavor. The texture of the cauliflower was very good. Read More

My wife served me one of her Jenny Craig dishes of cauliflower fried rice. It was pretty good so I used this recipe to clone it. I used a box grater on one head of cauliflower. I shredded 2 medium carrots, julienned a small onion, scrambled 2 eggs and poured out 1C frozen peas. I diced 4 chicken tenders In a wok, heated 1tb oil and stir fried the eggs setting them aside. In 1tb oil stir fried the chicken setting it aside. In 2tb oil stir fried the onions, carrots, cauliflower with 2tb sqeeze ginger and 2 cloves minced garlic for 10 min. Added egg, peas, and chicken back in and a few shakes of soy sauce to taste. Read More
