Back in 2020, while working for an event, I discovered a game-changing ingredient called "cauli-rice," which has had a profound impact on my life ever since. Whenever I crave low-carb and healthier meals, I turn to cauli-rice as a versatile option. Over time, I have refined the recipe to what it is today.

One of the great things about cauli-rice is that you can utilize the entire cauliflower, including the stem and leaves, minimizing food wastage. Simply blend them together with the florets, and you're good to go. Previously, I used to stir-fry cauli-rice with sundried tomatoes, spinach, and garlic. However, I wanted it to be a perfect accompaniment to any "over-rice" dish, so I decided to replace those ingredients with a wonderful Middle Eastern inspired spice blend.

To be honest, it works like a charm. I will be sharing two exciting dishes featuring cauli-rice with you soon, so stay tuned. But for now, let's get started with this incredible recipe.
