I finally made cauliflower rice, which has been on my “to-make” list for way too long. I know, I’m behind. But I finally made it, and it will be made a bunch more!
From someone who looooves the texture and nuttiness of brown rice, cauliflower rice isn’t going to taste exactly like it, but it will still be darn good. It is great for sopping up sauces and has that crumbly, chewy texture. Plus, it fits all of your healthy eating New Year’s resolutions!
I used Hamilton Beach’s 14 cup Dicing Food Processor which made this SO unbelievably easy to make. Keep reading to find out how you can WIN this food processor!
This guy is fairly large but it can dice, slice, shred, knead, chop, mix AND puree. Once you have this, you don’t need anything else. I also love that the blades have a storage case, keeping all fingers and toes safe!
I tore the cauliflower head into 5-6 pieces, and this thing just diced and shredded it right up.
This food processor made cauliflower into ‘rice’ SO easily. Like, stupid easy.
It must have taken under 2 minutes for me to rip the cauliflower head, place in the spout, and dice it all up.
Because I have been on an Asian food kick, I made fried rice and it was very delicious. It wasn’t the exact same as eating fried rice from a restaurant, but this is a whole lot healthier and provided me comfort and satisfaction.
I actually ate this for lunch AND dinner, and then finished the rest for breakfast. Never a bad time for cauliflower fried rice! :)
You will simply add veggies, sesame oil, soy sauce, eggs, a few garnishes… and you’ve got yourself a meal!
