When cauliflower is pulsed in a food processor, it magically turns into a vegetable that really resembles white rice. In this easy recipe, cauliflower rice is made into an herbed pilaf.

Made this for the first time tonight for my daughter who is a vegetarian. We both really liked it. It will be on the menu again.

I've made this recipe as it was written and it was quite good. Now, however, I use it as a base, and add more to it. Today it is less herbs, garlic and shredded zucchini. Yummy
