Have you come across the phrase cauliflower rice anywhere? Yes, you read that right - cauliflower rice.

In this advice, we will share with you what this rice is and how you can prepare it. Actually, if you look closely, when you cut cauliflower very finely, it looks a lot like rice grains.

Cauliflower rice can be a very good and healthier substitute for real rice in many recipes.

Among people who eat healthy, it is becoming more and more popular and many people prefer it to real rice. If you're on a paleo diet, have insulin resistance, or just because you don't like classic rice, then cauliflower rice is for you.

Cauliflower rice is very easy to make and does not require much effort. And here's how to prepare it:

There are two ways to do it, which are:

- The first way is to grate the cauliflower on a coarse grater;

- The other way is to grind it in a chopper or food processor.

In both cases, the goal is the same - to cut the cauliflower into very fine pieces, that look like grains of rice.

If you are in a hurry and don't want to dirty a lot of kitchen appliances, it is best to grind it in a chopper, because it is much faster and easier. For this, of course, you first need to have a good qualit cauliflower. After that, it is necessary to wash it and divide it into pieces, without removing the stems.

Then cut it into medium-sized pieces and put some of it in the food processor. However, the important thing here is not to overfill the appliance. If you want to make the best cauliflower rice, you need to grind it with several pulses of appliance, by periodically checking, that you have achieved the desired result.

And here comes the question, if you make more cauliflower rice than you need at any given time, can you freeze it? The answer is yes. Simply, after grinding it, distribute it in bags. Press them together with your hands and then put them in the freezer.

You can make Cauliflower Pizza Crust with the dietary food or use it for Cauliflower Side Dish as well as Cauliflower Appetizer.
