    I mentioned in my Stuffed Peppers post the other day that I would give you all the recipe for my Cauliflower “Rice.” Around here, we call it Cauli Rice, and I’m super happy that my husband and children like to eat it as much as I do. Cauliflower Rice is a tasty, nutritious, grain-free, alternative to white rice for those of us that follow a Primal or Paleo eating plan. Works for the Atkins people too.
