  • 1 head cauliflower


  • Rinse and dry cauliflower.  Remove green leaves and base stem, cut the cauliflower head in half.
  • Cut cauliflower into  similar sized, medium to small sized florets, cut any large pieces of stem off. 
  • Place half of the florets into the food processor and don't fill the bowl more than halfway. Pulse until the cauliflower resembles grains of rice, about short 20 pulses. It is very easy to over process and accidentally make cauliflower puree, so take your time. Repeat with the second half of the florets.
  • At this point, the raw cauliflower rice can be used in the recipe of your choice.
  • To cook by itself, sauté in a skillet over medium heat with a tablespoon of oil until tender, 5-8 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.


If you don't have a food processor, you can use a box grater to grate the cauliflower.
