For microwave preparation, place the cauliflower rice in a microwave safe bowl along with one tablespoon of water. Microwave for 6-7 minutes until tender as this will steam your cauliflower rice. You may add salt and pepper to taste once done.

For skillet preparation, place a teaspoon of coconut oil into pan on medium-high heat. Add your cauliflower rice to the hot skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for approximately 4-5 minutes or until the majority of the moisture is gone. Pan frying the cauliflower rice will provide a slightly dryer consistency than the microwave version. Add salt and pepper to taste.
