Most people when they hear someone say they made Cauliflower Rice is curious as to how you turned cauliflower into rice. Well, wonder no more, Cauliflower Rice is easy and simple to make and you do not need to be a chef to make it.
One head of Cauliflower
Blender or Food Processor
2tbs. Of Olive Oil or Organic, Naturally Refined Coconut oil (Butter can be used) or Broth
Start by cutting the stem off (throw away stems) the cauliflower and then chop into pieces.
Next, you can either use a blender or food processor (I used a blender) to place the cauliflower (a little at a time). Once you put the cauliflower in the blender or food processor pulsed it a few times when using a blender and just hit the pulse button for the food processor until the Cauliflower began to look like rice (You may have a few big pieces left (using blender) remove them set Cauliflower rice to the side and place big pieces back into the blender and repeat step it’s done.
Now, depending on how much you plan to make. If there are any leftover you can freeze the rest in a freezer Ziploc bag (When using leftover cauliflower rice that was frozen, before use let it sit out on the counter for a little while to thaw out). I would suggest freezing it family or individual portion sizes depending on how much you plan to cook next time.
Now it’s time to cook the cauliflower rice.
Heat up the 2Tbsp. of olive oil coconut oil, butter or broth in a pan on medium heat. Once the oil, butter or broth is hot then add the cauliflower.
Sauté the cauliflower on medium high heat, use a lid or not to cover (a lid will allow the cauliflower to soften faster due to the steam, no lid is called dry sautéing and it will give the rice a nuttier flavor) for about 5 min. or less (depends on the texture you like), stirring occasionally, after about 5 minutes or less you can add whatever seasoning you prefer like salt, pepper, garlic powder parsley or chopped fine spinach or kale again it’s your choice. Everyone’s taste buds are different. Then remove the lid, or if no lid was used continue cooking for another 3 minutes or until it dried out a bit and have golden brown edges.
