My friend Sally, is an amazing cook. She always has great recipes and has yet to fail me on a single one. She is the mastermind behind my incredibly successful No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars. When we were together the other day and we were talking about what to make for dinner, Sally told me about this and I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I served the cauliflower fried rice with an easy to make beef stir fry and it was a huge hit, even my kids loved it!
