Cauliflower "Rice" with Swiss Chard and Crimini Mushrooms

Ever since Trader Joes started selling the frozen organic riced cauliflower, I have been hooked! This is such a simple, lighter, starch-less option to pair with dinner and if made correctly, I would take this over actual rice any day. 

Oh, and mom tip: It takes about 8 minutes to make (win!). I don't have time for complicated meals anymore!

Anyway, have fun with this stuff! I mix up my cooking style with the "rice", depending on what is in the fridge and what I feel like. I also love make it with turmeric and shaved brussel sprouts. And even better, Parker loves it too.
