How to Make Cauliflower Rice
You can usually find frozen cauliflower rice in the store, but if you wanted to make your own (or you have a head of cauliflower that needs to be used), it’s simple to make at home. You can make cauliflower rice in two ways- with a hand grater or a food processor with the grater blade attachment. If using the hand grater, cut your cauliflower into smaller chunks and grate on the larger holes of the grater. If using the food processor, cut your cauliflower into larger chunks and pulse into you have the consistency of rice.
