Common Mistakes

One common mistake when making cauliflower rice is to overcook it. This will result in a mushy and wet dish. Cauliflower rice should be cooked just until it is tender, but still has a bit of a bite to it. Another mistake is to not add enough flavor to the dish. Be sure to season it well with salt and pepper, and add in a good amount of stir-fry sauce. You can also add in some fresh herbs or spices to give it an extra boost of flavor.
