Have you ever heard of cauliflower rice? Cauliflower rice is rice made of cauliflower except that cauliflower isn’t really rice. Confused yet?

OK, cauliflower rice is a substitute for rice for those looking to minimize or swap out the popular side while decreasing calories consumption, improving blood sugar and minimizing inflammation and it’s really simple to make.

I decided to slide some cilantro in the recipe because cilantro is the bomb diggity. Use this side dish as an accompaniment, if you’re in the mood for a change or wherever you would use rice.
