How to Make Cauliflower Rice
You are of course going to start with a fresh head of cauliflower. I like to get mine from the farmers market. Its usually really affordable. If you have a green thumb you can grow your own.
Rinse it and cut it into small pieces. Then pop that cauliflower into your food processor and give it a whirl. My kids love helping with this part.
Once it is whirled , spread it out evenly on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet.
Bake it a 350 for 10 minutes stir and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve as you would any white rice.
- Head of cauliflower
- salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Line a cookie sheet with foil. Set aside.
- Cut off all the green stem from the cauliflower head.
- Cut cauliflower in half and cut off more of the stem.
- Cut into smaller pieces and place them into a food processor.
- Pulse until the cauliflower resembles rice.
- *Don’t over pulse otherwise it will turn into crumbs.
- *Spread cauliflower onto foiled cookie sheet. Spread in all over the sheet so that it gets evenly cooked.
- Cook for 10 min. Stir around cauliflower and then spread it out again like it was before.
- Cook for 10 more minutes.
- Once cooked you can sprinkle some salt over it and serve as you would regular white rice.
- *When using cauliflower as a ‘rice’ substitute you don’t use as much as you would with regular rice. For each serving I would recommend ½ C of the cauliflower rice.
