Cook: 15 minutes
5 cups roughly chopped cauliflower (about 1 medium head) or 3 3/4 cups cauliflower rice
1 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 cup chicken broth
3/4 tsp. poultry seasoning, or more to taste
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 1/4 cups chopped brown mushrooms
3/4 cup peeled and chopped Granny Smith apple (about 1 apple)
1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped
If starting with roughly chopped cauliflower, pulse in a blender until reduced to rice-sized pieces, working in batches as needed.
Melt butter in an extra-large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, and garlic. Cook and stir until veggies have slightly softened and garlic is fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Add cauliflower rice, broth, and seasonings. Mix well. Cover and cook for 6 minutes.
Add all remaining ingredients. Re-cover and cook for 3 minutes, or until apple is mostly softened.
Uncover skillet. Cook and stir until cauliflower rice is tender and liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes.

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
