It's usually called cauliflower rice, but it's really more like a couscous. I kept hearing about that from my trainer and many other people in the "healthy world" but I had never tried it, because I'm not the biggest fan of cauliflower. I finally made a recipe a month ago and now I'm hooked!
Now CAULIFLOWER is my fav veggie! Hahah
It's such a versatile vegetable, you can use it for couscous, for pizza, for steak, for fried chicken and the list goes on!
Now I always have some blended cauliflower in my refrigerator is always useful!
You can eat it with a lot of different proteins, first time I made it, I had grilled salmon and chimichurri sauce with it! But really anything is perfect with it's really like eating rice or couscous (whatever you want to call it haha)!
I hope you enjoy this one!

I added some fresh diced tomatoes in the end on top to add more acidity and freshness to it!
I also put cilantro and green onions on top!
Also, mushrooms render a lot of water when they cook, so before adding the celery and peas, make sure that the water from the mushies has dried a little bit!
Hope you enjoy! have a lovely day!
