Broccoli-Cauliflower Rice


For the moment, this is my favorite side dish. All veggie. Great for soaking up some good sauce. Fantastic with the Chicken Shawarma. Super easy to make with plenty of leftovers for days if you use the whole medium cauliflower head. And...our boys had no idea (until I told them) that it wasn't really "rice."
