  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil alternatives: butter, coconut oil, sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Remove the leaves and stem from the cauliflower. Wash thoroughly and pat dry.
  • Chop the cauliflower into 5 or 6 pieces.
  • Grate with a box grater or (preferred) shred the cauliflower in a food processor. You may have to do a few batches. Make sure larger pieces are picked out and re-processed.
  • Place grated cauliflower on paper towels or a thin dish towel. Wrap the cauliflower up and squeeze out the moisture. You may have to repeat this step several times to get most of the moisture out.
  • Heat oil over medium high heat.
  • Saute cauliflower rice until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
