  • box grater
  • skillet


  • 1 head cauliflower washed and dried
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup parsley, chopped (optional)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • a pinch cayenne


  • Discard the leaves and cut a medium-sized cauliflower head in quarters and grate each of them using a box grater with medium holes. If you want to protect your hands during grating (or chopping), a great way to do so is to use cut resistant gloves.
  • Heat a lug of olive oil in a large skillet. Sautée minced garlic until golden. Add cauliflower rice, stir and cover with a lid. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring once or twice. Add chopped parsley (optional), salt, black pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Enjoy!
