Recipe Notes

A food processor makes this recipe, and so many others, a breeze. I use this one, and I love it. 

If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the cauliflower with a box grater

I used gluten-free soy sauce to make this recipe gluten free.

To make thiis recipe vegan, substitute scrambled tofu for the eggs.
