  • Heat Griddle – Make to preheat griddle to medium heat and add your desired oil. It may take about 3-4 minutes to get the griddle heated. You can use vegetable oil, olive oil, or butter.
  • Cooking Cauliflower Rice – Place the rice on the griddle and then season. We like to let the cauliflower rice for about 1 minute and then stir. This will give the cauliflower a crispy texture while allowing it to cook through.
  • Serving – The cauliflower rice is ready to serve once it is removed from the griddle.
