Tip

This is an idea as much as it's a recipe. It is rather different to other recipes for "cauliflower rice" on recipe community and Internet sites.

My aim was to produce a low carb steamed rice alternative, without a boiled cauliflower taste.

Make your own adjustments or try your own twists. Please share any good ideas!

Variation 1: Add a little vegetable stock paste instead of salt - this might change the colour of the "rice" but is a tasty option.

Variation 2: Fry some fennel or cumin seeds with the shallot to ad some exotic character.

Variation 3: Over to you!

Half quantities: Suggest 5 mins cooking time as for the full recipe.

Leftovers: Amazing Cauliflower Rice keeps for several days in the fridge and reheats well.

    Thank you, this is an easy to make, quick and tasty recipe; it was easy to portion down and also it is a good base recipe which you can replace the shallots with a very small amount of garlic and brown onion for kids. Ghee is a lovely option to use also.

    Submitted by MPW777 on 2. October 2017 - 18:06.

    Being new to making cauliflower rice, I have tried another recipe which says reverse when chopping the cauliflower, I chose that one as I wasn't sure if chopping it fully would make it mushy, it ended up chopping it very uneven which was very frustrating. Thought I'd try it your way and wow it chopped it evenly. I had pan fried it (as in Pete Evans recipe) and it was wonderful. I will try it as above now that I am getting the hang of it Big Smile, just worried it was going to be mushy. For some odd reason it won't let me rate it Puzzled 4.5 stars

  • Thank you for the recipe.

    Submitted by Julie Jules on 4. November 2016 - 06:12.

    Thank you for the recipe.  It's delicious.  I didn't read the instructions properly so neglected to set the first half aside. It was still great and had a "ricey" texture.  I'll be interested to see the difference next time I try it because I was happy with my first attempt.  I love your little pics in the instructions ... that helped me to buy the correct shallots. Thanks again!

    Love this recipe! I find that the added water is not necessary, and I also tried pan frying (in teflon fry pan with no extra oil) after for a couple of minutes on high heat and it dried it up a little, which we preferred.

    I have frozen cauliflower rice with butter chicken and it worked really well. It did not go watery on reheating and kept its 'rice'ness.
