Cauliflower rice

It's been a little while since my last "healthy living" post, so I thought I would share with you my current obsession.  Cauliflower Rice.  It sounds revolting (hence it taking me forever to give it a try), but I promise you it's genius.  Besides being a healthier option, it's also takes less time to make if you can imagine that.  Red actually prefers it to rice now.  You can cook it on the stove (one of my friends does this, but I have yet to try) or you can make it this way:

It's really very simple. 
1.  wash/dry cauliflower
2.  Cut into chunks
3.  Shred into rice size pieces in food processor
4.  Put it in the microwave for 5-6 minutes.  
5.  If we are eating it with something else, I usually just sprinkle it with salt & pepper and a little garlic powder ( you can add butter if you think it needs it).  If we are eating it by itself, I add some green onions.......delicious.

The thing I find most surprising is that it actually tastes good AND there's enough moisture in the cauliflower to make it a nice consistency without adding any water.  Pin-test success.    


  1. Just tried this tonight for dinner and loved it!!! It reminded us more of couscous (which we love) than rice. Will definitely be doing this alot! Thanks for the suggestion!!!

  2. I would totally agree Joanna....more of a couscous. Glad you guys liked it!
