Making the cauliflower rice – 10 minutes

Cut off the hard, green leaves from the cauliflower using a chef's knife. Cut the cauliflower into florets (small pieces).

You can use a chef's knife, or use your fingers to push or pull the cauliflower florets apart. Trim the stalks as short as possible.

You need a food processor and/or your chef's knife for the next step. You could blitz the cauliflower in a blender, but this will be a little more difficult. You can add a splash of olive oil if you like.

Shred/process all the cauliflower florets until they have become fine grains.

As cauliflower rice has a fairly neutral taste, you can easily combine it with different types of herbs and other ingredients. It's really tasty!

How do I cook my cauliflower rice?

Add a good splash of olive oil to a frying pan. Spoon the cauliflower rice into the pan and add a drizzle of olive oil over the top.

Sauté the cauliflower rice over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. The cauliflower rice is done as soon as you start to see light brown spots.

Is cauliflower rice low-carb?

Can I make cauliflower rice without a food processor or blender?
