Easy Cheesy Caulirice

    yield: 4 servings
    prep time: 5 minutes
    cook time: 20 minutes

    I make this comforting side dish at least once a week! It’s a favorite of ours and goes with everything. It’s what we consider a rich and creamy substitute for mac and cheese. You won’t believe how easy it is to make!

    • 2 tablespoons salted butter
    • 1 (12-ounce) bag frozen riced cauliflower
    • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
    • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
    • Salt and ground black pepper

    1. Melt the butter in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat.

    2. Put the cauliflower in the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 15 minutes.

    3. Turn off the heat. Add the cheese and cream to the skillet and stir until the cheese is completely melted and the ingredients are fully combined.

    4. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
