Asian-Style Riced Cauliflower

Asian-Style Riced Cauliflower

I was cleaning out my freezer the other day. (When was the last time YOU did that? You’ll be amazed at what you’ll find.  Throw out anything older than 6 months old.  It will probably taste funny.) I came across a bag of Asian-style riced cauliflower I bought from Trader Joe’s.  Although I cook most of the time, when I’m busy and get home late, I like having a few things I can prepare quickly.  Since it was about to expire, I decided to try it.

It was the first time I had eaten it and it was actually pretty good!  I thought to myself, “I can make this!” Since I only buy food that I can read and understand the ingredients, I was able to do just that.  I tried it a few times, added and changed a few things to make it a one-dish meal and now I’m sharing it with you. I think it’s better than Trader Joe’s!  If you’ve had theirs, try mine and see which you prefer….
