Can you use frozen cauliflower rice in this recipe?

I often buy riced cauliflower from the store for convenience, and you can absolutely use that in this recipe. You just need to thaw it first, which really doesn’t take long. Alternatively, you can make your own cauliflower rice. When I make my own I often freeze what I don’t need to use in recipes like this.

Is this stir fry spicy?

I used a little chili powder in this dish. It’s not overly hot, but gives a pleasing buzz! If you are particularly sensitive to heat then you can omit this. Likewise, if you like things on the spicy side, feel free to add a little more!
