    Wow this was so good!! I’ve never used cauliflower rice before and I was pleasantly surprised how much it tasted like regular rice. It’s a keeper, thank you!

    Just made it, thought it was great...husband says so, too. We both thought it tasted like crab, which we like. I added chopped celery, and used water instead of broth.

    This is one of my favorite recipes. I've made it often. I use 4 cups frozen riced cauliflower rather than fresh. It works great and much less work. No need to parboil the frozen cauliflower.
