How to Make Cauliflower Rice

Disclosure StatementHow to Make Cauliflower Rice

If you are gluten-free, grain-free, or even just trying to eat less simple carbs, you may already know about this delicious dish.

Cauliflower rice is my favorite substitute for a starchy side dish at dinner. It’s easy to make and really delicious. While it doesn’t taste like rice (in the same way that zoodles don’t taste like wheat spaghetti), it has a similar enough consistency and is especially great with saucier meals.

I actually have come to prefer cauliflower rice to real rice — and bonus: My boys like it, too. (My daughter doesn’t touch it, but she doesn’t even like real white rice.)

Many have purchased cauliflower already riced in the frozen section of Trader Joe’s. Our store has never had it in stock, but the truth is that making your own is so quick and easy.

And that’s it. Really simple, really delicious – and you get a huge serving of vegetables on your plate at dinner.


  1. How well does this reheat? Say, for shabbos lunch, how long could it be in warming drawer or on a hot tray before it turns to the flavor/consistency of overcooked vegetables?

    I like the idea of this for numerous reasons, and will likely make it for non-shabbos meals, but the shabbos application would be an added bonus

      I think it would reheats okay but if you put it on a plata, I’d definitely elevate it far away from the heat.

      By the way, if you are putting something hot/warm on top of it (meat, veggies, etc.), I think room temperature would be okay for the cauliflower rice.

    I heard they sell prepackaged cauliflower rice @ Trader Joe’s.

  3. I don’t have facebook so I couldn’t reply (to Peggy) above but I wonder if processing it while it’s (very solidly) frozen would help it ‘rice’
