12 oz. cauliflower rice, fresh or frozen

Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, until shimmering.  Add the minced garlic and sauté for about a minute.  Add the ground beef; cook, breaking up into smaller pieces, until browned.  Add the peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, water and Italian seasoning.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until the peppers are tender.  Add the cauliflower rice.  Cook for 3-4 minutes until rice is tender.  Add salter and pepper to taste.
