Life hack: Make cauliflower rice in under 5 minutes 28



View Profile

Cauliflower rice might sounds like another health tip from one of those ridiculous diets but it is actually a great alternative to rice grains. Here’s how you can make it in under five minutes….

For the best results when making cauliflower rice use a food processor:

  1. Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and cut into quarters.
  2. Remove most of the thick core and cut each quarter into several chunks.
  3. Blend half the cauliflower at a time got 30 seconds or until your cauliflower resembles fine rice.

You can also use a grater:

Grate the cauliflower using the coarse side of the grater. This method might leave you with a few larger pieces of “rice”.

Do you have any other easy cooking ideas?

    • You don’t cook it. To add flavour, fry onion, garlic and some spices. To this add the cut up cauliflower and just coat the flowerettes with the mix . Put this in the food processor and process to grain like consistency. Delicious. If you cook the cauliflower, it becomes too soft.

    • I blitz a whole cauliflower in batches, pack single portions in zip lock bags and freeze. When I want to use it as a rice alternative, I defrost and give it 3 minutes on high in the microwave. Does not go soft or mushy. It can also be used successfully in a chicken fried rice (cauliflower ) dish.

    • I just give it a little steam in the microwave until it’s softer but still crunchy. Also roasting it in the oven with a little olive oil before processing gives it a lovely nutty flavour. Love it.

    • I do enjoy cauliflower this way but not often, way too expensive up here. The “Experts” grumble about us being a nation of obese people but healthy food is too expensive for a lot of us

  2. Place 1tbs of coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the cauliflower and lightly cook for 4 – 6 minutes, or until softened. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
