Cauliflower rice is a great low-calorie dish to have in your arsenal especially if you are eating low-carb. Super low in carbs, yet such a satisfying dish you will forget it's made from a vegetable and not a grain. There are two reasons I opted for roasted riced cauliflower in place of sauteed: 1) more flavor and 2) better texture.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line 3 baking sheets with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.

  • Fill a food processor 1/4 of the way with cauliflower pieces. Pulse 8 to 12 times until cauliflower is the size of rice grains. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat with remaining cauliflower pieces.

  • Drizzle avocado oil over cauliflower "rice"; toss until well-distributed.

  • Spread 2 1/2 cups of the rice in an even layer on each lined baking sheet.

  • Roast rice until golden, about 16 minutes. Remove from oven, stir well, and spread out again. Return to oven and roast for 6 minutes. Remove from oven, stir well, and spread out again. Continue roasting until browned, about 5 minutes more.

  • Season each sheet of roasted rice with 1/4 teaspoon salt and place in a large container.

Cook's Note:

You can absolutely do this with just 2/3 a raw cauliflower (that would be about 1 batch). I always make a lot of this and freeze some as it's a big staple in my kitchen - super low-calorie, delicious, and healthy.
