  5. Add soy sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper.

I often get my cauliflower rice frozen for the sake of convenience but it is pretty easy to make your own. If you do make it yourself, make sure you don’t process it too fine or else it’ll turn into mush.
Toasted sesame oil at the end gives the rice an umami flavor so characteristic of Chinese cuisine but definitely isn’t detrimental to the dish!
