You can add veggies of your choice to this rice. Try adding corn, peas, capsicum, etc.

Increase or decrease the quantity of sauces according to your taste.

You can ass some szechuan sauce if you like your food spicy.

To save time, you can rice the cauliflower in bulk and freeze it in small batches and use it whenever needed.
