  • In small batches, place florets into a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower resembles rice.
  • Remove any larger pieces and put back into the food processor and pulse.
  • Heat a skillet to medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Once heated add the cauliflower rice and cook for approximately 5-7 minutes until tender, stirring frequently.
