Cauliflower News and Recipes

Make your own Cauliflower Rice

Break cauliflower into large florets.  Wash and rinse well.  Let the florets dry in a colander or pat dry with a towel so all moisture is removed.  

Cut florets into a smaller pieces and add to food processor and pulse until finely chopped (add small amounts of florets at a time).  A grater can be used for this step also.  Use the large grates.

Heat oil in skillet over medium heat.  Add cauliflower rice to skillet and cook for 5-8 minutes until cauliflower is soft and just starting to turn golden brown.  Add your own seasonings.
