Spanish Cauliflower Rice

This is game changing low carb, trim healthy mama cauliflower Spanish rice!

Cauliflower rice is a no go in my family. My husband barely tolerates it and my kids won’t eat it. I have learned a trick since I have started eating it. I have made this rice as fried rice and Indian spiced rice. They have ate it every time I have prepared it like this. It does take a little bit longer to make than making normal cauliflower rice but the results are worth the extra minutes. You aren’t standing at the stove constantly stirring but you are paying attention and adding liquid to make sure it doesn’t burn.

I pulled some marinated chicken breasts from my freezer, frozen cauliflower rice, and all of the other ingredients and put everything in a tore in the fridge. It is such a simple way to meal prep for me.
