I cook cauliflower rice at home, but I do it a little differently. I break half a cauli into florets and I put in a microwave safe dish with a lid, with NO water and I put it on high for about 3.5 minutes. Once it is cooked through - I blitz it in my little hand food processor and that it is, no butter or marg. Great with curries :)

Perhaps, omitting the butter (which is a NO NO -animal fat) and substitute Low Calorie/Low fat mayonnaise or salad dressing.
