Cauliflower is also a good source of antioxidants so it is a great food to have on a keto diet.

How to Rice Cauliflower

To rice cauliflower, all you need is a head of cauliflower. Chop it up into florets and place half of it in a food processor. Pulse the cauliflower until it is small and has the texture of rice or couscous. Make sure not to over process it as it will become mushy, and that’s not the texture we want for this recipe. Repeat this process with the other half of the cauliflower.

This does not take a long time to make. However, if you don’t feel like going through the hassle of ricing your cauliflower, you can even buy it pre-riced from the grocery store, usually from the produce section or from the freezer section. Store bought cauliflower rice is also a good option for when you are limited on time.

Storage

To store cauliflower rice, cool the leftover rice quickly, either by leaving it out on a baking sheet or placing in the refrigerator. Try not to leave it out for more than two hours as it could cause bacteria growth. Rice lasts for three to four days in the refrigerator or up to three months in a resealable freezer bag in the freezer as cauliflower rice is freezer safe. Frozen rice can then either be added directly to hot dishes, thawed overnight or even in the microwave.
