I have always seen cauliflower rice and never tried it, pinned it on my food board along with hundreds and hundreds of other recipes. With my husband and I attempting to be a little healthier and possibly losing a few pounds, I revisited the idea of making cauliflower rice. The nice thing about this one is that it literally took my five minutes to make.
Fresh Cauliflower if it’s available. It is $5.00 a head here fresh so I did a bag of frozen.
A dash of coconut oil or olive oil (this is optional)
Take your frozen bag of cauliflower and put it my ninja blender.
I have a love affair going on with my ninja blender. I received it as a wedding gift and have used it to make juices, smoothies, baby food and now cauliflower rice! If ninja came to me and asked me to do a sponsored post I would accept it in a heart beat! If you don’t have one, you may want to consider putting it on your santa wish list.Anywho, enough about my awesome blender…
You can either pulse blend it or use #3 crushed ice on your blender. I got so focused on my recipe that I forgot to warn LO, so I had a crying baby to tend to also. Pulse, pulse, pulse, itsy bitsy spider, pulse, pulse, pulse, went up the water spout….
Your cauliflower will look like this:
Transfer your cauliflower into a pan and if desired, add coconut oil or olive oil. Brown the cauliflower in your pan. You can also heat in your microwave, since it’s in smaller pieces you only need two minutes.
Salt and Pepper to taste and you have completed an awesome side dish! The great part of this is that it’s only 60 calories per serving!
