Add cauliflower, peas and carrots. Continue cooking until vegetables are just tender , approx. 4- 5 minutes, (making sure not to overcook or the cauliflower will become too soggy)

Notes
* Many stores sell a mixture of frozen carrots and peas

**To make your own Cauliflower rice- Cut a large head of cauliflower into florets. In a blender (or food processor) add approx. 1 cup of the cauliflower florets and process for approx 15 sec. until the cauliflower is the consistence of rice. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat until the remaining cauliflower is processed.( It's important to work in small batches when making the cauliflower rice to get even "rice" size pieces).
