    • Add the cooled cauliflower to a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is "riced" meaning the florets have been broken down into small particles similar to rice, but not mushy. Looking for finely chopped cauliflower. Transfer to a large bowl.
    • Add the rice, cashew cheese, breadcrumbs, eggs, chili powder, cayenne pepper, parsley, rosemary, Knorr Intense Flavors Roast Umami and pepper to bowl. Stir until combined with desired texture.
    • Form the mixture into 10 patties and place on an oiled baking sheet. Return to oven and bake for about 20 minutes, flipping burgers halfway through.
