Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower, the white, stalky vegetable that many people confuse for “albino” broccoli, has over 100 varieties—you can find them in orange, purple, brown, and even green, growing anywhere from 8 to 30 inches tall and wide. In fact, the largest cauliflower ever grown weighed almost 27.5kg – that’s over 60 pounds!

With a side dish as easy and delicious as cauliflower rice, you’ll be wishing you grew one that big!


  • 1 large head cauliflower


  1. Wash and thoroughly dry cauliflower, then remove all greens.
  2. If using a box grater, cut the cauliflower into large chunks and use the medium-sized holes (see photo – the side commonly used to grate cheese), to grate into rice. If using a food processor, cut into small pieces and use the grater attachment to grate the cauliflower into rice.
  3. Optional: Transfer to a clean towel or paper towel and press to remove any excess moisture, which can make your dish soggy.
  4. Use cauliflower rice in recipes that call for rice.


Makes 8 1/2-cup portions.
