Easy Weeknight Dinner: Cauliflower Fried Rice & Chicken Dumplings

WARNING: this recipe looks a lot harder to make than it actually is. I say this first because I don’t want you to be intimidated like I was when I randomly decided to make this on my way home from work tonight. The ingredients look like a lot but I guarantee you most of them are already in your pantry. Cooking took literally 10 minutes.

Make it once before you knock it! Or for those of you who are already knocking Cauliflower rice make it hard on yourself and use regular rice.
