Ingredients
  1. 1 head of cauliflower
  2. 1 TBS olive or grapeseed oil
  3. garlic powder (to taste)
  4. onion powder (to taste)
  5. salt (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Clean and break the cauliflower head down to floret sizes, just small enough that you can easily get to every side of the flouret. Using a cheese shredder*, shred the florets of the cauliflower, down to the stem but avoid shredding the stem itself. Prepare large fry pan by heating it over medium-high heat until warm, add in oil then quickly saute cauliflower, just until warmed through**. Remove from heat, sprinkle in garlic powder, onion powder and salt to taste. Serve warm.
Notes
  1. *There are many ways to shred a cauliflower, but for whatever reason, using a food processor, blender or any other tool to prepare cauliflower rice, more often than not, ends up leaving a less than desirable flavor. It is more work to do the shredding by hand, but totally worth it in the long run.
  2. **Avoid over cooking the cauliflower. This is the #1 thing that leads to a flavor/texture non-cauliflower eaters hate. I've been able to serve this dish to people who have never eaten cauliflower on their own accord, and have had them coming back for more! Enjoy!

  1. I’m not sure I can trust a cauliflower hater!

  2. I wish I had known this a week ago! I wonder if I can get my husband to give this a try again?

  3. Okay Sunny, Im gonna take a leap of faith and go for it. (Is a half a bottle each of garlic and onion powder still considered “to taste?” Lol.

    Ill let ya know how it goes 😬

  4. This looks great! I make cauliflower rice quite a bit but don’t really like cauliflower. I can’t wait to try it using a cheese grater and not cooking it so long – maybe I will like it more!!! Thanks!

  5. I totally believe you on this, Sunny, because I far prefer any food when it’s hand grated. Must try for sure! Sharing. 🙂

    xoxo,
    Shirley

  6. I’ve been loving cauliflower rice lately – can’t wait to try yours!
