  1. Wanted to introduce cauliflower rice to my daughter’s family. Would bump up seasonings next time but it was great. Wasn’t sure the no added liquid would work but it did. Added a bag of frozen peas and would use cilantro/lime next time which we didn’t have. I love the variability and the tastiness.
  2. This was delicious! We will use two head of cauliflower next time because everyone wanted seconds! I didn't have garam masala so we used chole masala.
  3. We are not a big veggie-eating family and I've been trying to change that. I used a bag of frozen TJ's organic cauliflower rice heated it up to defrost it and then followed this recipe only adding extra garlic and cayenne pepper (and using ground ginger instead of fresh.)

  4. Excellent healthy dish! I have made it several times and sometimes add shredded chicken, chopped walnuts and green onion. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
  5. I have made this twice and it was super tasty both times. Great recipe!
  6. Fantastic low car dish to go a long with chicken tikka masala or some other low carb main indian dish.
  7. Wonderful! Wow. If you like Indian food and seasonings this is a must try. Super easy. Healthy.
  8. Loved this recipe.... Im not a big fan of Cauliflower so the added seasoning was perfect. I did add a little veggie broth when simmering w/lid as I felt the butter was not enough but otherwise this was perfect!
  9. Loved this! The flavors were spot on, and it smelled wonderful while cooking. The only thing different was to add a bit more of each seasoning, only because the head of cauliflower was huge. I'll be making this again and again. This is a great substitute for me because I eat low-carb/keto.
