  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen riced cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa


  • Put cauliflower rice in a microwaveable bowl. Add about 2 tablespoons water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high until tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool until safe to handle.
  • Lay a thin dish towel on a flat surface. Add 1/2 of the cauliflower. Hold the 4 corners of the towel together to wrap up the cauliflower completely.
  • Twist the towel and squeeze hard to drain off as much water as possible. Remove cauliflower and repeat with the other half.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until smoking. Add cauliflower, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and white pepper.
  • Saute, stirring constantly, until cauliflower is browned and liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add salsa. Cook and stir until salsa is mostly reduced, 8 to 10 minutes more.
  • Enjoy!
