While shopping at target the other day I found pre-chopped cauliflower! Talk about convenience.


You can purchase these cauliflower crumbles, or you can simply place cauliflower florets in a food processor and process it until it resembles rice. It’s actually very simple to “rice” the cauliflower in a food processor (and more cost effective) but this option is convenient and quick!

Follow the steps for a quick and delicious Asian inspired dish.

  4. At the point when the cauliflower is light brown, add in your low sodium soy sauce and continue cooking until the cauliflower is tender. Be careful to not allow the cauliflower to become too soft by over cooking at this point!
