Cauliflower has to be the most versatile food on the planet, and it makes an amazing rice substitute. You can generally find it at most grocery stores already ground into “rice,” or simply throw your florets in a food processor to get a rice consistency. To jazz up this cauliflower fried rice, serve it up with chopped pineapple, which provides the perfect tang. For a fancy serving option, use fresh pineapple for the recipe, then hollow out the halves.
