Look no further...This is a delicious side dish to serve with pretty much anything. Replace any recipe that calls for using rice. My husband doesn't even like cauliflower but loves this dish! Not only is it great along side beef, chicken, pork or fish, it's wonderful to serve topped with pasta sauce, chili, a stir-fry and such. Each serving has just 93 calories, 6 grams of fat and 2 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.
