Prepare the Cauliflower

Place the cauliflower florets inside a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower resembles couscous (about 15 pulses). Using a rubber spatula, remove the cauliflower from the processor. You may need to pulse in batches. You can substitute riced cauliflower, instead of making your own couscous.
