To make cauliflower rice, start by removing the leaves and stem from a head of cauliflower. Cut the cauliflower into small chunks and place them in a food processor. Pulse the cauliflower until it resembles rice grains. If you don’t have a food processor, you can also grate the cauliflower using a box grater. Once you have your cauliflower rice, you can use it raw in salads or cook it in a pan with a bit of oil for about 5-7 minutes until it’s tender.
  • 1. You can substitute the cauliflower rice with broccoli rice for a different flavor.
  • 2. Feel free to add other vegetables or proteins to make this bowl even more nutritious.
