Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 large head cauliflower


  • Remove all green leaves, then wash and dry the cauliflower completely.
  • Cut the cauliflower into florets.
  • Working in batches, place cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until broken down into rice-size pieces. Do not let the food processor just run because you will end up with mush.
  • Scoop UNCOOKED cauliflower rice into ziploc bags, squeeze any excess air out, and flatten the bags.
  • Place and store in the freezer for 2 months.
  • You can also keep it in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • To cook, heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet; add cauliflower rice, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove lid and season with salt, pepper, and seasonings of choice. Serve.


If using a box grater, cut the cauliflower into 4 chunks and use the medium-sized holes to grate it.
