Since starting low carb I have tried several times to make cauli-rice. You know when you take cauliflower and rice it, shred it, or chop it finely to look like rice? Sometimes also called faux rice.
All the times i've made it before i've done it with frozen cauliflower and the results weren't as good as I hoped. The cauliflower is too watery and mushy when thawed. So please if you want to see the difference try this recipe out. It is really good. Very subtle cauliflower flavor and excellent texture.
1/2 head fresh cauliflower
salt to taste
Food processor, magic bullet, or Ninja. I personally own the Ninja and I love it! I use it almost every day. I used it to make this rice and in a few seconds Voila!
medium, microwave safe bowl
1. Cut the cauliflower into florets
2. Add the florets to the Ninja and pulse until riced (I did it in two batches)
3. Add the riced cauliflower to microwave safe bowl, add salt
4. Microwave for 3 minutes, stop and stir the rice every 1 minute
5. Ready to serve!
You do not need to add any water to the cauliflower, it steams with its natural water and comes out perfect.
I got 2 cups of rice from half a head of cauliflower
