     Roasted Cauliflower Rice

Save yourself a few hundred calories in your weeknight meals by getting to grips with low-carb, cauliflower rice.

Blitz – a food processer will give the best results. Remove the outer leaves from the cauliflower, cut it into quarters and remove most of the thick core, then cut each quarter into two or three chunks. You don’t want to overload the blender, or it will struggle to blitz the cauliflower, instead work with about half the cauliflower at a time. Blend for 30 seconds or so, until the cauliflower resembles fine rice, or couscous.  

 

Grate – If you don’t own a food processer, you can grate the raw cauliflower on the coarse side of the grater. You may find you’re left with a few bigger pieces, which will give the ‘rice’ a chunkier texture.

Roasting
This is an awesome method for cooking cauliflower rice. Toss the rice with a drizzle of olive oil in a tray, then spread it out to a thin, even layer.  Roast the ‘rice’ at 400 degrees for 12 minutes, mixing it in the tray halfway through cooking. This method makes the ‘rice’ light, fluffy, and flavorful.
