Recipe: Cauliflower Rice
Over the past couple of months Cauliflower Rice has become a huge staple in our weekly food/meal prepping. If you have never tried it, you need to!
I love it for many reasons...
- It seriously tastes just like rice, but without the added starch that I don't always need some days.
- I love that you use the whole head of cauliflower. I hate throwing away the stems because I feel I am wasting a lot of good food. With this, you don't need to waste anything!
- My daughter loves it! Always good to find new veggies she likes :)
- It's simple to make and lasts all week in the fridge.
I have seen a lot of different ways you can make cauliflower rice, but here is the simple way I do.
Cut the cauliflower up into small chunks.
Put them in the food processor and pulse until the cauliflower has the "look" of rice. Make sure you don't do it too long or the cauliflower will turn into mush.
Add about 1 inch of water to a large pot and bring to a boil. Add the cauliflower rice. You will want to stir it around and then cover and let simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
I then drain the cauliflower rice.
Once done, you have endless possibilities to add to your daily meals.
My favorite is making a "stir fry" and adding chicken, cut up veggies and a little bit of soy sauce.
Hope you give this a try and let me know how you like it!
