  • Steam, fry or microwave until soft, this takes around 3-8 minutes.


  • Cut cauliflower into small florets and mix 5 sec/speed 5. Scrape from bowl in to steaming basket.
  • Pour 400g water into the mixer and insert steaming basket. Cook 10-14 min/120°C/speed 3. Check consistency and extend cooking time if needed. Season to taste.


600g of cauliflower is equal to approximately 4 cups, or 10 serves.
Cauliflower rice can be made ahead and frozen in airtight containers in the freezer for up to 3 months. I do this often with cauliflower, so it never goes to waste and I can stock up when cauliflower is cheap.
