This was absolutely delicious! I used a bag of pré-riced cauliflower, which I am fairly certain had more to it than a grated cauliflower would have, so I also used a whole small onion and two large cloves of garlic, as well as a bit more heavy cream and a pat of butter. It was a magnificent accompaniment to salmon. I will be making this quite often. Read More

This recipe is delicious. I am not crazy about the cauliflower taste of cauliflower rice but the carbs are so much better than rice. I don’t taste the cauliflower in this. My husband found it to be very satisfying, very flavorful and said “the texture is great! Read More

I made this yesterday evening (had leftovers tonight). It was amazing!! The only thing I changed was I used butter instead of ghee and I used frozen riced cauliflower (Costco, 4 cups). Everyone loved it, will definitely be making this again! Read More

I thought this was really good! Grating the cauli makes you think you're eating a starchy side. It's nice to have an option like this to go along w/ your main dish and green veggies. I sub'd butter for ghee. Will definitely make again!!! Read More
