Cauliflower rice - easy to make at home!

cauliflower-rice-recipe-homemade

If you're trying to cut carbs from your diet, you may have tried cauliflower rice as a substitute to traditional starch in your meal. Cauliflower rice keeps its texture, and doesn't have a domninant flavour, so can be served as part of any meal that calls for rice or potatoes.

Cauliflower rice is now readily available at most retailers, however you'll notice you're paying much more for cauliflower rice compared to an equal sized whole cauliflower head. It's easy enough to make your own, and it only takes a few minutes to serve. So save on your groceries, and give this recipe a try!

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole cauliflower head
  • 1.5 Cups water
  • Directions:

    Wash the cauliflower head, and cut into equal sized florets. Add the water and (raw) florets to the OmniBlend jug, and pulse 4 to 5 times. Remove the jug after each 2 pulses, to shake the jug to make sure the florets are cut equally into the preferred size. You'd want a normal 'rice' size. When removing the jug from the base always make sure the blades have stopped spinning, before removing the jug.

    Drain the water/rice mix in a sieve, and press with a spoon to squeeze water out of the rice as much as possible. Decant into a microwave safe bowl, and heat for 1 minute in a microwave. This is sufficient to 'cook' the rice. Serve with your favorite sauce, leftover curry, or any meal that calls for starch as a side.
