    Can you just use garlic puree or minced garlic or is there a good substitute? I do not like the flavor of ginger at all. Otherwise, this looks like something I would like to try to make. Thanks!

      Robin, Yes you can just use the garlic. The ginger doesn't even really need a substitute, though if you are looking for a bit of spiciness you can add a touch of cayenne pepper.

    How long does this take on the stovetop?

      Ricki, Cook the cauliflower about 10 minutes on the stovetop then following the remaining directions. 🙂

    Now that raw cauliflower rice is available to purchase, how much do I need?

      Hi Elisabeth, you would need about 6 to 7 cups of the pre-cut cauliflower rice.
