  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 1 Tablespoon butter or ghee
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Cut cauliflower into florets. In batches, pace cauliflower in a food processor or high-powered blender and pulse until it achieves a rice-like consistency.
  • In a large pan over medium heat, melt butter and allow it to sizzle until it gets lightly browned in color.
  • Add the cauliflower and salt, then stir to coat completely, and smooth to a single layer.
  • Stir every 4-6 minutes. After about ten minutes the rice will start to brown on the bottom, so you may have to stir more frequently.
  • Cook for a total of 20-30 minutes, until tender, browned and slightly dried out.
