Added a diced fennel bulb because we needed to use it. Didn’t have cilantro, so used parsley. A little bland but better with more salt.

Easy to make and very tasteful

Horrible! very, very bland.
Very simple to make The success of this dish depends on the texture and flavor of the cauliflower I bought The cauliflower already riced It was a great texture hence a good dish
Added a little bit of garlic and chili. The flavors are amazing. Have too make it again.

It turned out great! I loved the flavor before the lemon but with it was great also. I enjoyed the cauli-rice. My KIDS ate it up.

It was ok. It did give the impression that I was eating rice with a good taste but it just wasn't for me.

Fantastic! Took a little longer than I thought, but well worth it. I used lime juice instead of lemons. I used some refrigerated dry basil. And for leftovers I stirred in some tomato basil feta cheese. I will add that in the beginning next time. Very very yummy recipe!

Super easy, I don't think it even took me 30 minutes! My family really enjoyed it. I will definitely make more soon.

The best cauliflower rice recipe! I have tried many and this was the best by far. The lemon and the cilantro made it very fresh. I increased the lemon juice and added the zest of one lemon. I used coconut oil instead of olive but the combination with the asparagus is a taste treat. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Timing on this recipe is right on.

I am eating this right now - and it is FANTASTIC!!! It tastes just like Fried Rice! I added some oriental seasoning, sesame oil, green onions, Kikkoman low-sodium soy sauce and two eggs to my version. I LOVE IT and will definitely make this again ... WOW! Thanks!!

U'Found' cauliflower rice a few months back.. Once tried, one is 'sold' I have used it as the. Base of a typical fried rice. Add whatever you have in the fridge that's tasty just as if you are making your Normall fried rice. Great as a base for any yum sauces you make, ie carbonara. Makes a wholesome tasty light carb meal Quick. . Easy. Tasty. Toss it in garlic or chilli infused olive oil.... Coconut oil is yummy t o fry/toss it in also. Mmmmmmm.

Absolutely awesome!!!! Yes I will make it again. The only thing that I added was a small amount of garlic.
