Ingredient List: Cauliflower
Chop a head of cauliflower into florets or other similar-sized chunks. You’re about to food process them, so they really don’t have to be pretty.
Steam them for about 15 or so minutes over a pot of boiling water.
Make sure not to let the cauliflower touch the water while it’s steaming. This will introduce too much water and you will end up with mashed potatoes instead of rice.
Once knife tender (but maybe not yet fork tender), pop ‘em in the food processor and run in spurts until you have small rice-sized chunks.
The cauliflower rice freezes beautifully! And it doesn’t need to be cooked again before being eaten, just warmed up.
