How to prepare the cauliflower?
Wash the cauliflower a few times, remove the heavy stem from the bottom of the cauliflower head and cut off all the outer green leaves. it will fall apart into large florets.
What is the best way to make cauliflower rice?
You can either use a cheese grater or a food processor with the grater attachment. A food processor will definitely give the best results, it will turn the cauliflower into little pieces the size of rice.
It usually takes 30-40 seconds to pulse the cauliflower florets until they resemble short grain rice. I recommend to blend the florets in batches not to overload the blender.
If you don’t own a food processor, you can use a cheese grater. The cauliflower rice will be a chunkier texture, as you may find bigger pieces.
I advice to season with salt after cooking to avoid soggy and waterlogged rice.
