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.

  • 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.
