Cauliflower Rice Stir Fry

This week I am sharing a great recipe my sister recently taught me that features cauliflower rice – a perfect substitute for rice or pasta when looking to reduce your carbohydrate intake. This recipe is great to curb those chinese or thai takeout cravings, easy to make and great for leftovers. Add in more or swap out other veggies of your preference and even swap the chicken for chickpeas or tofu to make vegetarian!
