    Easy to cook and rather tasty. Our first try of 'cauliflower rice' and amazingly, the kids ate it without complaint.

    Thank you

    This was really flavoursome & went perfectly with our Korma chicken tonight.  I actually left the garlic out (didn't read through the recipe first and ran out of time when everything else was ready to serve, so just skipped that step).  It was a lovely change from plain cauliflower rice.

  • We really liked the texture

    We really liked the texture of this dish with a little bit of crunch.  It was easy to make and a nice tasty and healthy alternative to rice.   This seems to be a very versatile recipe which we'll make this again and try different flavours using the cauliflower and frozen peas as the main ingredients.
