How Do You Rice A Cauliflower
Cauliflower is turned into small rice-like grains either using a food processor or a grater.
First wash and dry the cauliflower head carefully, and remove all the green parts.
Using A Food Processor
Cut the vegetable into small pieces, then use a grater extension of a food processor to grate the cauliflower into “rice.”
Using A Box Grater
Cut the vegetable into large pieces and use the medium-sized holes of a box grater to grate it into a rice-like texture.
After processing or box grating, transfer the grated cauliflower onto some paper towels and lightly press it. Doing so will help to remove any excess moisture, and avoid having a soggy dish later.
