How To Make Cauliflower Rice (without a food processor)

Oh hey there! Looks like you’ve stumbled across and old post which I’ve now reshot and refilmed! Check out my new cauliflower rice post here!

How To Make Cauliflower Rice l Add A Little

I’ve seen cauliflower rice floating around the internet for a while now, but I never got round to making it, and boy have I been missing out! It’s a great alternative to rice and grains as it’s really light and perfect for summer.

I used a grater as I don’t have a food processor (shock horror!) but it still turned out really well, so I recommend trying this out!

It’s pretty bland on its own, but would be a great carrier of flavours for stews or simple grilled vegetables!
You can also eat it raw, but I prefer it sautéed in a bit of olive oil with salt and pepper (and you could definitely add any herbs you wanted during the cooking process!)
You can check out my recipe for cauliflower fried rice here!

I decided to make this a photo heavy post as a tutorial, but be sure to check out the video I made here (and the recipe is below as usual)!

You first want to grate the cauliflower with a grater until it has a ‘rice’ consistency.

Sauté the cauliflower in some extra virgin olive oil with salt and pepper until golden.
You can also use coconut oil, which I’m sure would have great flavour!

Serve it up straight away, whilst warm.

Cauliflower Rice vegan, gluten free, dairy free

Florets of cauliflower
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Grater, or food processor

Grate the cauliflower florets until fine (I use the large holes on the grater).

Heat a pan and sauté the cauliflower until lightly brown. Remember to season as it’s quite bland.

Serve straight away whilst warm!

  1. Oh goodness, I’m embarrassed to say that my lovely food processor is no longer functional – it’s still grinding, but it won’t turn off 😦 so I relied on a very basic food processor, not very powerful. Thank you for the alternative method, I must try this with a grater. What a lovely video, thank you for putting this up, I’ve been thinking about doing videos, but with photography, blogging and recipe development, it seems like a lot of work, so I appreciate you for sharing this!
