  2. Add in 1 minced garlic clove and heat for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add in 2 cups of riced cauliflower and cook for 6-9 minutes or until the rice is cooked and no longer has any liquid in the pan.
  4. Optional – add in a pinch of pepper for flavor.

Time saving tip: use the frozen riced cauliflower found in most grocery stores in the frozen foods aisle.
