How To Make Cauliflower Rice

Thursday, May 2, 2019
Last week, I shared a fairly simple Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich and you all seemed to really enjoy it. So, I decided to share what I did with the rest of that cauliflower head. I created Cauliflower Rice!

Ever since I learned that I could do more with cauliflower besides steaming it, I’ve been all in. Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable, and I’ve been finding more and more ways to prepare it.

How To Make Cauliflower Rice

Rice is such a staple for a ton of recipes. However, rice is very starchy and is a complex carb. Doesn’t mean it is entirely bad, but sometimes a break from it could be good.

In the past, I have tried the pre-made cauliflower rice that comes in your grocers freezer aisle. I enjoyed it a lot; especially the vegetable fried “rice” kind. But, I really wanted to create my own.

I checked out some Youtube videos and pulled up a ton of how to create cauliflower rice on Pinterest. Everyone has their own individual way of creating cauliflower rice, but this is what I found worked for me.

One step that I found repeatedly in the tutorials for cauliflower rice was they would drain excess moisture out using a rice cloth. I didn’t do all of that.

Ya’ll know I’m lazy. If I can skip a step, I will. And truthfully, I felt that it turned out just as fine without doing this step. Maybe one day I will give it a try just to see why most other recipes have included this step, but for the most part it still turns out just as good taking a paper towel and patting dry.
