Cut the stalk from around the head of the cauliflower. If you were to boil or steam the cauliflower, cut the florets into similar sized pieces for even cooking.
Cauliflower is great for low carb recipes because it’s low in fat and carbs and high in fiber. For this recipe, you will we be grating the cauliflower to use as a substitute for rice. So, cut the florets into large chunks that will fit in the mouth of your food processor.
Process fresh cauliflower until it is the size of rice, either using the plain steel blade or the shredder blade. If you don t have a food processor you could also use a hand-held grater or cut it very finely by hand.
Cook in a steamer for about 6 minutes. Adjust the time for your preference. When it’s done, you will have a slightly firm, but tender rice alternative. Add some butter, salt and pepper and serve.
