    • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into large chunks
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Place cauliflower chunks in a food processor and pulse until broken down into rice-size pieces.
    2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat; add cauliflower 'rice', salt and pepper. Cover pan and cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove lid and fluff 'rice' with a fork.


    You could also use the medium side of a box grater to create cauliflower 'rice' instead of a food processor.

    This is lovely but I boiled the 'rice' in the same way I boil the cauliflower !  -  22 Feb 2016


    I tried this for the first time as my hubby is on a low carb diet. It is fab and even my 9 year old and 6 year old loved it too. I don't think I will ever make normal rice again  -  14 Feb 2016


    I thought this would be a little bland but I was wrong. The flavor comes through well. I will definitely be making this again. A cheese grater works well making the cauliflower into rice.  -  16 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
