How To Make Cauliflower Rice
This week marked my first week of Whole30. I have been wanting to switch up the side dishes and thought cauliflower rice would be a smart choice. It’s not hard to make and wanted to share it with you, here’s how to make cauliflower rice.
Do you know what’s awesome about cauliflower? You can use it for everything! From cauliflower pizza crust (including my favorite recipe for BBQ cauliflower pizza) to roasted cauliflower dip this vegetable can mimic flour and cream-based foods. It’s the miracle vegetable, in my personal opinion.How to make cauliflower rice. Is there anything cauliflower can't do? #Whole30 #PaleoClick To Tweet
I used my new favorite kitchen tool (the Vitamix 7500) to rice the cauliflower, but you can you a food processor or (if you have the patience) a knife. When the rice is ready, take a few sheets of paper towel and squeeze out some of the moisture.
Randa’s tip: don’t over do it otherwise, you’ll have cauliflower mashed “potatoes”. When ricing the cauliflower, you may have to give it a little stir in between pulses.
The spices and seasonings I added were: salt, pepper, and garlic powder. It went well with the Coconut Curry Chicken Meatballs I made with the rice, but you can add whatever you want.
My suggestion is to make a big batch in advance, that way you will have a healthy side dish to grab and go all week long.

- 1 head cauliflower
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
- Clean your cauliflower and let dry.
- Break the cauliflower into florets and add them to your high powdered blender (I have this one) or food processor.
- Pulse until the cauliflower turns into “rice”. Squeeze out as much water as possible with paper towel.
- In a wide skillet (or pot) over medium – medium/high heat add the olive oil, cauliflower, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir around for 5 minutes, cover and cook for roughly ten minutes. You want the rice to lose the crunch.
- At this point, I stirred it around a little longer to get more of the moisture out.
