Cauliflower rice is a wonderful grain-free rice alternative and a sneaky little way of getting some extra veggies into your diet.
HOW TO MAKE CAULIFLOWER RICE
To get started to make sure you wash a medium-sized cauliflower, then cut it in half and use your knife to cut out the individual florets. You don’t need to be very particular as we’re going to throw the florets into a food processor.
But if you do have any large pieces, make sure you cut those smaller.
Insert the grater adapter into your food processor and start feeding the cauliflower florets through the top.
You’ll have raw cauliflower rice in no time, and depending on the size of your food processor you may have to empty it halfway through.
Once that’s done, dice one half of an onion. That adds some body and flavour to the finished dish.
Pour a few tablespoons of olive oil into a saucepan and sauté the onion until it’s translucent.
Then add the cauliflower rice and saute for another five to seven minutes or so, making sure to give it a good stir.
Season the cauliflower rice with salt and pepper and then dish it up.
