- Buy the frozen cauliflower rice to make this recipe super easy. If you want to use fresh cauliflower, use a food processor to chop one head of cabbage into small pieces.
- Make ahead of time and freeze. Let thaw in the fridge overnight before baking.
- Better than Bouillon is my favorite brand, but you can use powdered bouillon if you prefer.
- Add cooked chicken pieces to make a complete meal.
