How To Make Easy Cauliflower Rice

Making this cauliflower rice is one way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet. It’s easy and only takes 15 minutes to make.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 15 minutes



  • lbshead cauliflower
  • 1tbspolive oil,plus more for drizzling
  • 1tbspchopped parsley
  • salt,to taste
  • black pepper,to taste


  1. Use a knife to remove the outer leaves and cut off the cauliflower florets from the stem. Cut florets into 1 to 1½-inch sized pieces.

  2. Add half of the florets into a food processor. Pulse 10 times in 1-second increments until pieces the size of cooked rice are formed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Remove any large floret pieces that do not get processed and process them with the next batch. Transfer all the processed cauliflower to the large bowl. When finished with both batches, there should be about 6 cups of cauliflower rice. 

  4. If storing for a later meal, transfer the cauliflower rice to a resealable plastic bag and refrigerate for up to 10 days or freeze for up to 30 days.

  5. To cook, heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice in one layer. Cook for 2 minutes, and then stir and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until the rice becomes tender. Season the rice with salt and pepper.

  6. Transfer cauliflower rice to a bowl and garnish with chopped parsley, a drizzle of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
