Cauliflower is not just a perfect low-carb and grain-free alternative to rice and potatoes. If you follow a healthy low-carb diet, you should always have some cauli-rice ready in your fridge.
Al you need to make cauli-rice is either a food processor with a grating blade, an S blade , or even a hand grater if you don't have any of these. Check out the recipe below for more information on how to do this step by step.
Steaming: Place in a steam pot and cook for 5-7 minutes. Otherwise, place in an airtight container and store up to 4 days.
Microwaving: Place the processed cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cook on medium-high for 5-7 minutes. You won't need any water when cooking in the microwave. Season with salt and pepper (if desired).
Pan roasting: You can briefly cook the "rice" on a pan greased with butter or ghee or add directly to the pot with meat or sauce you plan to serve it with.
Oven cooking: Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). Spread the grated cauli-rice over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook for 12-15 minutes flipping 2-3 times.
You can even make cauli-rice in a blender - what a great idea! You can keep the cauli-rice sealed in the fridge for up to 4 days.
