Cauliflower Rice

I love my hubby, but he doesn't eat nearly enough vegetables to satisfy me.  So what do I do?  I add cauliflower to his rice.  I'm sneaky like that.  Not that he likes rice too well, but he'll eat some.  When he does, he'll get some extra veggies he didn't even know about.  The best part?  He either didn't taste it or ignored it.  Either way, he ate it!  (Adding cheese helps a bunch!)
