Servings 6


  • 1 (20oz) bag frozen cauliflower rice (or 4-5 cups)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 oz cream cheese (about 4 tbsps)
  • salt, pepper and garlic to taste


  1. Microwave the cauliflower rice according to the package directions, only shave off a few minutes of cook time since you will be further cooking it in a pan.

  2. Meanwhile, melt about 1 tbsp of butter in a sauté pan on your stove set to medium heat.

  3. 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).

  4. Add the milk, cheddar cheese and cream cheese to the pan and lower the heat to medium-low; mix everything together until it's melted and well incorporated.
