Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put cauliflower rice in a microwaveable bowl. Add about 2 tablespoons water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high until tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool until safe to handle.

  • Lay a thin dish towel on a flat surface. Add 1/2 of the cauliflower. Hold the 4 corners of the towel together to wrap up the cauliflower completely. Twist the towel and squeeze hard to drain off as much water as possible. Remove cauliflower and repeat with the other half.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until smoking. Add cauliflower, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and white pepper. Saute, stirring constantly, until cauliflower is browned and liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add salsa. Cook and stir until salsa is mostly reduced, 8 to 10 minutes more.

Nice means of turning bland riced cauliflower into something edible!! I did not have chili power so substituted smoked paprika and cayenne mix instead. Good recipe! Read More

Made my own fresh cauliflower rice. Sauteed some chopped onion and chopped green pepper for a few minutes then added about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of cauliflower rice and sauteed a few more minutes. I then added about 1/2 cup of thick and chunky salsa with some garlic powder, chili powder and cumin, all to taste. Didn't bother with microwaving and wringing water. One family member is on a keto diet and she was very happy with it. Read More

This recipe was delicious, and very easy to make! I almost gave up on cauliflower rice until I tried this recipe! This was flavorful, and not boring like plain cauliflower rice I had gotten used to eating! I didn’t have cumin so I substituted taco seasoning, and I substituted black pepper for the white pepper in the recipe. I will purchase those seasonings next time I go grocery shopping, and make it again! Read More
