Chef Tips

Cauliflower rice can be purchased in the produce section of most grocery stores. Cauliflower rice can be made at home by chopping cauliflower into florets. Place the florets into a food processor and pulse until florets are minced, or resemble rice.

Not everyone likes cilantro. If that’s your case, chop up a mix of half flat-leaf parsley and half mint.
