Dilled Cauliflower Rice

healthy seder

Don't skip rice on Passover, use cauliflower instead; it's lower in calories and higher in vitamins. This quick side dish pairs perfectly with the lemony chicken.

If you're pairing it with my chicken dish, you can skip the lemon, since the pan juices from roasting will be flavored with preserved lemon.
