Cauliflower rice - best methods

Since I don't like the strong taste of cauliflower, I have been doing the microwave 3 minute cooking with a bit of olive oil.  Works well for me.  Fried "rice" with onions, peppers, and garlic is very good.

black beans that Frank made

to me
2 cans black beans
2 small onions
2 tbsp minced garlic
3 tbsp dried cilantro
1/2 tsp cayenne or chipotle chile powder
2 chicken andouille sausage cut up (I buy it from Trader Joe's, but Whole Foods has a brand too)

In a large saucepan saute onions, sausage, garlic til onions are tender. Add beans, cilantro, and chile powder. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 5 min.

This makes quite a bit of beans, but I eat them every day. Obviously you can just do one can and halve the recipe.
