Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Rice to go with absolutely almost everything from steak to chicken, to fish, to shrimp. It’s roasted for about 20 minutes and it’s super flavourful with lots of olive oil, garlic, parmesan, fresh parsley and salt and black pepper.
I love cauliflower rice and I’m guessing if you are visiting this recipe post you probably like it too or at least you’re curious to know how to make it. Nowadays, many supermarkets carry it already chopped like a “rice” consistency.
I normally find it at the chopped veggies section at my local grocery store. I have to say that it’s a little more expensive than the actual cauliflower head, but I think it’s worth the price because it is a super time saver. But you can also make your own with the help of a food processor. See the instructions below.
How to make this Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Rice recipe?
- First, I cut a medium cauliflower head into florets and roasted them for about 20-25 minutes.
- After that I just added the florets in a food processor and pulsed it for about 20 seconds. It’s more than enough time to turn the florets into “rice”. If you pulse it for more than that your cauliflower “rice” would become cauliflower “mashed”.
- Finally I transferred the cauliflower “rice” to a medium bowl and season it with parmesan and fresh chopped parsley. So good!
It’s also a great addition to your salad. If you love quinoa for example but at this moment you are on a low-carb diet, you can replace quinoa for cauliflower rice. Awesome, right?! If I were you I would run to the kitchen right now to make this recipe for dinner tonight. Enjoy!
