Cauliflower Rice

This recipe is a basic one but I have heard many people telling me they tried to make cauliflower rice and it tasted terrible. So I’m sharing my recipe, it’s great to have in your fridge ready to eat. It’s also the base of a pizza crust if you don’t mind a little bit of cheese. I’ll share the recipe for that soon. On the picture below you can see the before and after.

Ingredients
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fat of choice (prefer grass fed butter or coconut oil)
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Cut the cauliflower head in chunks.
  2. With the cuisinart - food processor using the grating blade for the cheese, pass all the florets through it (if you don't have a cuisinart you can use a cheese grater but it makes a mess).
  3. In a large pan over medium heat, melt the butter or coconut oil and add the cauliflower rice.
  4. Stir and let it cook until no longer chalky- it will be slightly translucent,
  5. If you use a pan that's too small it will make the rice soggy, by using a large pan and/or cooking in batches it will help the water evaporate.
  6. When the rice is almost ready turn the heat up and saute for 2-3 minutes, it will give it a little crunch.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. You can also add before serving ½ lemon juice and chopped cilantro depending on what you are serving it with.
