How to Make Cauliflower Rice (Low Carb Recipe)

Share to save for later!

The cauliflower rice is the perfect side dish for many types of meat. It’s a very simple preparation and you can replace your regular rice with riced cauliflower. I have tried preparing it baked, boiled and in the microwave. The latter has a texture more similar to rice, so I prefer it.

Cauliflower has emerged as one of the best low carb rice substitutes, revolutionizing the culinary world for those on a ketogenic or low-carb diet.

Its neutral flavor and grain-like texture make it an impeccable stand-in for traditional rice, allowing dieters to enjoy their favorite rice dishes without the carb overload.

You can even make low carb hash browns and low carb mac and cheese using cauliflower. The possibilities are endless!

Not only is cauliflower nutritionally dense, packed with essential vitamins and minerals, but its versatility also offers a world of culinary possibilities, making it a staple in many low-carb kitchens.

You can use riced cauliflower as a side dish for your meat. Check these keto cauliflower rice recipes for more ideas.

  • 1 cauliflower medium
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder for flavor, optional
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder for flavor, optional
  • 1 tsp parsley optional
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp chilli pepper for flavor, optional


  • After washing and drying the cauliflower thoroughly, discard the leaves and chop it into small chunks.
  • Transfer the chunks in the food processor and pulse until rice-sized bits are obtained.
  • Pour the cauliflower bits into a heat-safe bowl. Fold together with the butter then season with pepper and salt. Use the “cooking” function of the microwave to warm the seasoned cauliflower bits for around 1.5 to 2 minutes. If there are no microwaves available, simply stir-fry the cauliflower in a pan. Stir well with the garlic powder, cumin powder, chili pepper, chopped onion, butter, and any other seasonings of your choice.
