  • Remove cauliflower and steamer from the pot. Drain all water and return cauliflower to the empty pot. Add chives, parsley, garlic powder, and onion powder.

  • Set pot over medium-low heat. Mash cauliflower with a potato masher to the consistency of rice grains. Stir until excess moisture evaporates and the 'rice' appears fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

This turned out great and was super simple to do. I only steamed for 10 minutes and would probably go even less next time to get bigger and fluffier "rice". The key with this recipe is letting the cauliflower drain really good before you go to ricing it. While it still tasted great I had quite a bit of mushy pieces from the moisture. Read More
