  • 1 medium cauliflower head cut into florets
  • 3 tbsps. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • herbs or spices optional

  • Sauté the cauliflower for a couple of minutes on medium heat and then reduce the heat to low and cover to simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring at least once.
  • Remove the pot from heat and let the cauliflower rest for a couple of minutes before serving.


  • If you would like to flavor up the rice, you can add some lime and cilantro in it.
  • Add spices or herbs to flavor up the rice if you like.
