Easy Basic Paleo Cauliflower Rice

Rice, as we know it, is a huge staple in so many peoples diets that it is not the least bit surprising that Paleo cooks have come up with a way to substitute it. One of the most effective ways is using cauliflower that has been chopped up until it is the size and consistency of cooked rice. Although this recipe is for a basic plain Cauliflower Rice, once you have a supply of this on hand you can use it in so many different ways while cooking. I have recently used this recipe as an alternative for rice in my post for an absolutely delicious Chocolate Rice Pudding, but feel free to use it in making fried rice, sushi, or as a side dish with a little olive oil and garlic. 



  • One large head of white cauliflower
  1. Chop the cauliflower up in either a food processor or by hand with a grater until it resembles rice.
  2. Cook it over low heat on the stovetop until it is hot, mixing occasionally. 
  3. Remove from the heat and let sit for a few minutes. Enjoy and use in recipes as you would rice.

  1. The instructions say - cook over low heat on stove top - in a frying pan? Did you use any kind of fat? How long can you store it in the refrigerator if you want to use it for more than one recipe?

    1. You are just warming the "rice" on the stovetop and yes a little of your favorite oil works perfectly. If you are planning to same the " rice" for later store in an air tight container as you would actual rice.
