How To Make Cheesy Keto Cauliflower Rice… with FROZEN CAULIFLOWER! Easy peasy.
- Start off by cooking the cauliflower in the microwave according to the package directions, only shave off a few minutes of the cook time since you’ll be adding it to a sauté pan to cook further.
- Meanwhile, melt about 1 tbsp of butter in a pan set to medium heat.
- Add the mostly cooked cauliflower rice to the pan and stir it all up with the butter, tossing it for a few minutes. Season the rice to your taste (I use about 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and little salt and pepper).
- Next, add 1/4 cup milk, 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese and 2 ounces of cream cheese.
- Lower the heat a bit and mix everything together with a spoon until it’s well incorporated.
This is where it starts smelling and looking really GOOD. I could probably eat the entire pan myself.
