THE BEST KETO CAULIFLOWER RICE

This keto cauliflower rice is a recipe that you have to have in your cooking repertoire. 

Whenever I have a main dish and feel like I need a little something else to go with it, this cauliflower rice is always the answer.

It is super quick and easy to make, and the neutral flavor allows it to complement any dish. 

And I like to add it to the recipe I'm making or just eat it on the side! And I'll go over a few of my favorite recipes to eat it with a little later. 

Also, another plus about this cauliflower rice recipe is that you literally need two ingredients to make it, and it comes out perfect everytime!

INGREDIENTS

So, as I just mentioned, you'll need just two ingredients to make this cauliflower rice

And those ingredients are:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • Chopped parsley (optional)

If you don't have cauliflower at home currently, I highly suggest picking up a few heads the next time you're at the store.

Not only can you make cauliflower rice with it, but you can make a couple of other keto cauliflower recipes like this cauliflower soup and these roasted cauliflower steaks

HOW TO MAKE CAULIFLOWER RICE

As I already mentioned, making this cauliflower rice so easy and takes minutes!

All you have to do is turn the cauliflower florets into rice, and then sautè for a few minutes.

Seriously, that's all it takes to make it, so you don't even have to plan ahead and can just whip it up on the fly. 

Now let's make this healthy, versatile, and delicious side!

Cutting board with a head of cauliflower, three cauliflower florettes, and a white bowl filled with riced cauliflower. There is a box grater inside the white bowl.

STEP 1: PREP WORK

So, the first thing you will do is wash your head of cauliflower, dry it, and then separate it into florets. 

If you are using a box grater, you can cut the cauliflower into larger florets. And if you are using a food processor, cut your cauliflower into smaller pieces. 

Then either grate your cauliflower florets with a box grater using the medium-sized holes. 

Or you can put your cauliflower florets in a food processor and, using the grater attachment, blend it up until the florets turn into a rice consistency.

STEP 2: COOKING THE CAULIFLOWER

Now that your cauliflower is riced take out a skillet and put it over medium heat

Pour your olive oil into the skillet and move it around so the oil coats the surface. Then add your cauliflower rice to the skillet and saute for about 4-5 minutes. And make sure to cover your skillet with a lid to make the cauliflower a little more tender. 

Then to finish up, add some salt and chopped parsley to your cauliflower rice, put it on your plate, and dig in!

WHAT TO EAT THIS CAULIFLOWER RICE WITH

This cauliflower rice is delicious on its own, but it is so much better if you pair it with another delicious keto recipe.

Here are some of my favorite ones to eat it with:

I probably forgot a few recipes it pairs perfectly with, but you get the point, there are endless ways to enjoy this cauliflower rice.

STORING YOUR CAULIFLOWER RICE

The best part about this recipe is can make as much rice that you want at one time. So grab a couple of cauliflower heads from the store, and you'll be set for the entire week and beyond! 

You can store your leftover cauliflower rice in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days

And what's even better is you can store your uncooked cauliflower rice in the freezer for up to 1 month

All you have to do is make the riced cauliflower and then put it in an airtight container in the freezer. Then when you want to eat it, just toss it in a skillet for 5-8 minutes to defrost and cook. 

NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION 

If you use one large head of cauliflower, you'll get about ten ½ cup servings out of it. And each serving will have 2.4 NET CARBS!
