cut the cauliflower into quarters through the middle. Lay each segment flat on the cutting board, and cut at an 45° angle to separate the stem. Now using your hands, separate the florets. Follow this detailed post on How to Cut Cauliflower for reference.
Attach the S-blade that comes with most food processors. Add the florets in the food processor in a single layer (no stacking). Close the lid and pulse 8-10 times, or until you reach your desired texture of Cauli rice. Depending on the size of your blender, you may have to do this in 2-3 batches.
Attach the 'grater' blade in your food processor. Close the lid, start the machine and add the cauliflower florets into the feeder tube. You may have to cut the bigger florets into half to fit them in. Continue till all the cauliflower florets have been shredded.
Use the large or medium-sized holes, start with the floret side and grate it into 'rice-like' shreds.
Cook Cauliflower Rice
Simply heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat.Stir in the riced cauliflower. Stir and sauté for 5 minutes, until it becomes tender.
Add your choice of seasoning and stir another minute.Turn off the heat and garnish your chopped cilantro, parsley or any fresh herb of choice.
Start with dry cauliflower to prevent it from turning mushy and soggy. Wash and dry cauliflower ahead of time to prevent excess moisture.
Shred in batches. Don't over stuff your food processor as that will result in an uneven grind.
Store cooked cauliflower rice in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Cooked riced cauliflower doesn't taste the same after freezing, so freeze it uncooked instead, following the directions below.
To freeze uncooked cauli rice, spread it on a large plate or baking sheet. Freeze it for a couple of hours, then scrape and transfer it to any freeze-safe container, and store up to a month.
For cooking frozen cauliflower rice, don't thaw it. Add it to the skillet straight from the freezer and saute on medium-high heat until it thaws and crisps up.
