Prep Tips:

  • It’s most cost-effective to buy a head of cauliflower and chop yourself. However, if you’re short on time, many grocery stores have pre-chopped cauliflower pearls or rice in the freezer section. If this is what you’re using, you can skip right to the cooking step.
  • You can use cauliflower rice (when it’s steamed, before you stir-fry it) to make cauliflower pizza crust too!
  • Make cauliflower fried rice by adding a couple Tablespoons of coconut aminos, scrambled egg, and chopped veggies.
