As much as I love rice, it is difficult to stay awake after
putting carbs in my belly. So, I must look for alternatives.
Cauliflower rice saves the day.
If you love carbs like me, you would love this “rice” version. Best of all, guilt-free. You know what I mean.
I have been using a particular brand of frozen cauliflower rice until this recipe. I found that different brand has different grain size. So, it caused the difference of cook time. (Click here for more info about Fresh vs Frozen Cauliflower Rice)
So, my advice for you is that trying different brands is great, especially when there is a sale for you to save grocery money. But if time is more imperative for you, stick with the same brand instead of messing around.
I did pack this delicious cauliflower rice into several containers for lunch. If that's your plan, I highly recommend to pack grape tomatoes separately and add them before serving.
You can also stick with 100% pantry ingredients by replacing fresh grape tomatoes with a can of 15 oz diced tomatoes. Strain juice very well before adding tomatoes into the rice.
