Keto Cauliflower Rice Recipe, So Much Yum!

This keto cauliflower rice recipe is a gluten-free, low-carb alternative to starchy rice grains. It can be altered with the shake of your favorite spice so you can make it your own! Perfect as a side dish, casserole, or bed for a savory mix of meat and veggies. Having a really good blender makes this easy, but there’s also nothing wrong with chopping it all up on a cutting board. Why not buy pre-riced cauliflower? One word: BUDGET. My favorite store Aldi sells a head of fresh cauliflower for under two bucks!

Having a really good blender makes this incredibly fast and easy, but there’s also nothing wrong with chopping it all up on a cutting board. This is the blender I’ve had for four years. I use it to pulverize nuts into flour, make incredible keto shakes, and of course, pulverizing cauliflower into lovely rice sized bites in about 3 seconds. This picture shows the remains after I threw about a half a head of cauliflower in, broken into ping-pong ball sized chunks. It also comes with serving size cups to blend directly in. If you haven’t fallen in love with bulletproof or fatty coffee, blending it might be just what you’re missing.

 Keto Cauliflower Rice Directions

  1. Pulverize 1/2 head of cauliflower. Mix with two stalks of chopped celery and one small chopped onion.
  2. Season with salt, pepper and your choice of spices. I used paprika, red peppers, garlic, cayenne pepper.
  3. Heat 1/4 avocado oil or Kerrygold butter in skillet, add rice mixture, 1 tablespoon liquid or coconut animos, 1/2 cup of bone sipping broth, and stir.
  4. Now it’s just like cooking hashed browns. Pat the mixture into the pan and let it brown. Flip it as best you can to brown on the other side. Once it’s cooked, you can stir it all back up to give it some fluff.
