Moroccan Cauliflower Rice

Brown rice was a go to in my family for years. When we had to eliminate grain from our diet, I didn’t know what we were going to replace it with. Discovering cauliflower rice was a blessing.  My creativity led me to create Moroccan cauliflower rice that my family loves. I hope you will too.
