  • 2 lb Tofu (extra firm, drained and cubed)

  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt (divided)

  • Meanwhile, in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, add the cauliflower rice and stir often. Cook for 5 minutes or until the cauliflower is cooked through.

  • More Flavor

    Serve with ketchup, hummus or your favorite dipping sauce.
  • Additional Toppings

    Cilantro, lime zest, salsa and/or guacamole.
  • No Olive Oil
