Here is a quick and simple tutorial on How to Make Keto Cauliflower Rice. All you need is cauliflower and a food processor.
Remember the days of AIM? As in AOL Instant Messenger? I miss those days. Simply saying the word (or acronym to be exact) and I’m instantly transported to my college days. Ah, those days of carefully crafted away messages, when it was imperative that everyone knew when you were getting a shower or had a sandwich or were feeling blue. Things were simple then.
Some days I crave that simplicity. Days when I didn’t have a rectangle attached to my hand more often than I care to admit. When social media was still relatively obscure and The Real World was about as real as reality TV got. I’m really dating myself here, huh?
Did you ever consider back then that we would have phones that will unlock by recognizing our retinas? I certainly didn’t. And did you ever consider that we would be making rice out of cauliflower? Hello no! No one did! But here we are, and this is cauliflower rice!
I’ve been making recipes with caulirice for some time and while I’ve been dropping instructions here and there in various recipes, I figured it was time I put up a proper way of making one of the most versatile side dishes.
See, recently I’ve had to keep grains at a distance as they do bother me. I’ve eliminated oatmeal entirely but will have rice and quinoa occasionally. They’re no longer staple parts of my diet, and I’ve noticed a remarkable improvement. So cauliflower rice is a great alternative.
So here we go. Instructions for the most basic way of making cauliflower rice without much fuss.
