2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup sliced scallions
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups cauliflower rice, fresh or frozen
2 cups peas, fresh or frozen
½ teaspoon ground pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons water
1 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons cornstarch
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, plus more for serving
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add scallions and garlic; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add cauliflower rice, peas, pepper and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add water and continue cooking until the cauliflower is softened, 3 to 5 minutes more.
Whisk milk and cornstarch in a small bowl and add to the cauliflower. Cook, stirring, until the sauce is creamy and thick, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan and parsley. Serve hot, topped with more parsley, if desired.

Healthy, delicious and not too complicated. Just what I'm always looking for! I'll definitely make this again.
I didn't like the look/cost of the cauliflower rice at my market today, so I just bought a good-sized head of cauliflower and chopped it fine in my food processor. It produced more than the needed 4 cups.

I just made this dish and it is absolutely delicious!! It was really easy to make. Did not take long at all.
My husband does not like peas so I substituted asparagus. Great flavor and texture. Will definitely make again.
