  1. Help!! How many cups of cauliflower rice comes from 12 cups of florets? I want to use frozen cauliflower rice — please help !

  2. What is the individual serving size – 1/2 cup or 1 cup? Are the nutritional amounts for the 6 servings? Love the recipe and will make it more often.
    Thank you….

    • I’m so glad you like the recipe! The entire casserole serves six – the nutritional info isn’t per cup of half cup, it’s for each of the 6 servings.
