Heat some oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Then, add the broccoli to the skillet and cook it for a few minutes.

After the broccoli is fully cooked remove it from the pan. Then, add more oil, some soy sauce, minced garlic, and pepper to the skillet. Add your cauliflower rice to the skillet.
