  • 1 small head cauliflower or half a large, makes 4 cups of riced cauliflower
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables thawed (I used carrot, peas, green bean & corn mixture)
  • 3 tbsp tamari or soy sauce if not avoiding gluten
  • 1/2 small lime juiced
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ginger


  • Using a food processor or veggie bullet, shred your cauliflower into a rice consistency. If using a food processor, do so in smaller batches not to over process your cauliflower. You do not want it pureed.
  • Add all your ingredients to a large skillet and sauté over medium high heat for about 5-6 minutes until softened.
  • Serve garnished with green onion and lime wedges if desired.
