Learn how to make cauliflower rice in a few short steps in 15 minutes! So easy, and a great low carb and low cal alternative to regular rice!
Whoa, October is almost over! So, I’ve been making cauliflower rice for a few years. For some reason I didn’t think it was post worthy. I’ve decided that instead of waiting till, well, never, it’s about time to share.
If you haven’t heard about cauliflower rice, then get ready for a low carb, low calorie alternative for one of the world’s favourite carbs.
Cauliflower rice is so much easier than you’d ever imagine. Grind up cauliflower in a food processor, or a grater, and that’s it. No seriously, that’s all it takes to rice cauliflower. Of course, we want to transfer this into something we actually want to eat with flavour, so here’s comes a few extra steps.
I love to drain all the liquid out of my cauliflower with a paper towel, and then to add it to a few teaspoons of coconut oil (or olive oil) with some salt, pepper, garlic and lime to give it some flavour.
Voila, in just 10 to 15 minutes, you’ve made Cauliflower Rice! It’s so easy it’s almost recipe-less, which is probably why I didn’t share it, but it’s a great low carb alternative that you should definitely know about. Also, it’s a lot more versatile than rice.
You can use this in the place of a pizza crust by adding in an egg or egg substitute. Or, make a cauliflower fried rice (hello next idea). You could even use it in burger recipes that call for brown rice. It is of course more delicate, so handle this beauty with care.
Have fun experimenting!
