You don’t need any special ingredients for this recipe:
- riced cauliflower
- cream cheese
- Frank’s Red Hot sauce
- cheddar cheese
- mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- dried parsley or green onion slices for garnish
If you don’t have riced cauliflower, or can’t find it, you can easily make your own for this recipe by running half a head of fresh cauliflower through a food processor or blender, or even a cheese grater.
I took the fast route by steaming my riced cauliflower in the microwave, but you can also do it in a saucepan on the stove. Just remember to drain it well once its tender.
Keep in mind that this dish is quite calorie-dense with all the different cheeses in it, so it’s best enjoyed responsibly and saved for occasional use.
