STEP 1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a parchment lined sheet pan place tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapenos. Roast in oven for 30 minutes. The veggies should be blistered and a little charred and brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes until cool enough to handle.

Carefully open the packages and press cauliflower rice between a couple paper towels to remove some of the excess moisture and set aside.

Add the cauliflower rice to the pan with cumin and cook for 3-4 minutes stirring constantly until heated through about rice begins to brown. Season with salt & pepper to taste. If using fresh riced cauliflower the cooking time will be a little longer, 5-6 minutes or until tender.

STEP 5 Assembly: You can layer your bowl any way you’d like but this is how we do it! Place about ½ a cup of cauliflower rice in the bottom of your bowl and top with a little cheese.
