Riced Cauliflower for Korean Meatballs Step 1 – Steam the cauliflower florets according to package directions. Drain and pat dry. Place in food processor, pulsing until cauliflower has a rice texture. Alternatively, you can purchase riced cauliflower to save a little more time.

Step 5 – Add heated meatballs to the sauce, stirring to coat. Step 6 – Serve meatballs and a little of the sauce over the riced cauliflower. Garnish with green onions, if desired. Sweet and Spicy Korean Meatballs If your family likes things on the spicier side, increase the sriracha to 1-2 tablespoons. We keep things mild around here.
