Cauliflower strikes again! I never tire of finding new ways to use cauliflower to re-create high carb dishes. This cauliflower rice pilaf recipe is an excellent replacement for traditional rice pilaf. While the texture is a little different, the flavor is spot on.
How to cook cauliflower rice
I have learned over time, and through many cauliflower recipes, that the longer you cook cauliflower rice, the more it takes on the flavor and texture of other foods like rice or potatoes. This recipe also make a great base for my Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe.
