About Tempered Cauliflower Rice Recipe

There are so many ways you can use this tempered cauliflower rice. Have it as the main dish (like I did) with a side of pickle, papads and salad or you could make a Buddha bowl with chickpeas and an assortment of veggies. It is great as a filling for burritos replacing the lime rice or a nice accompaniment to your steaks (hugely cuts down the guilt factor!).
