How To Make Cauliflower Rice

All you need to make this cauliflower rice recipe is a food processor with a slicing blade. Don’t want to break out the food processor? Try a sharp butchers knife, too, depending on how your knife skills are.

Using a knife will get the job done, it’ll just take a little longer than using a food processor. Now, grab a head of cauliflower and break it down into florets, making sure the florets are small enough to fit through the chute in your food processor.

Using the small slicing blade (ours comes with a small and medium blade) turn the food processor on and start feeding the cauliflower into the chute.

What you’ll end up processing the cauliflower this way is a cauliflower rice with a lot of different sizes and textures. Some of the cauliflower will be small like rice and some will be a super thin slice of cauliflower, depending on the way it went through the chute.

Making cauliflower rice using the chopping blade results in all small pieces that are pretty much the same size. That’s fine, too but sometimes you end up with a big pile of mushy cauliflower rice.

No one is going to dive in to a big bowl of that.
