Low-Carb alternative for rice dishes. From the blog: Cook Lisa Cook. I wanted to add this variation to my online cookbook for safe keeping!

I always cook my cauli-rice this way. I keep it in the fridge for recipes throughout the week or freeze in smaller portions for later use. It's unbelievably good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the leaves and hard center core of the cauliflower. Cut into florets. Wash and then allow the cauliflower to dry completely. (You want the cauliflower completely dry and you will NOT be adding any water when cooking, this helps to cut down on the boiled cauliflower taste and smell.)
  2. Once dry, fill the bowl of a food processor about half full and using the chopping blade and the pulse action, process the cauliflower until it looks like the size of grains of rice. Add the processed cauliflower to a microwave safe bowl and repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
  3. Once all the Cauliflower has been processed and added to the microwave safe bowl, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap or a lid. Microwave on high for 7 minutes. Remove from the microwave and fluff up the Cauli-Rice with a fork and if desired add a pat of butter, salt & pepper.
