Are you trying to go grain free or Paleo, but miss eating rice?
I completely know how you feel. As an Asian-American, rice was basically one of the four basic food groups in my diet growing up. At least 1-2 meals a day included a small bowl of white rice. And boy, did I love my rice. I’d eat it for everything from curry to chili to fried chicken to hamburger steak (Salisbury steak).
Cauliflower Rice is a Delicious Grain Free Side
When my family first transitioned to a gluten free diet, I still ate rice a few days a week. But when I cut back on the grains, I was struggling to find a way to enjoy my rice without the grain and carbs.
Then I found out about cauliflower rice. It’s so simple to make, and I’ve adapted the tutorial with my own twist that I think you’ll really enjoy.
What to Serve with This Cauliflower Rice
You can use cauliflower rice as a substitute for white rice, brown rice, or even mashed potatoes. So anytime you serve up chili, pot roast, or stir-fry serve it up with cauliflower rice.
You can also use cauliflower rice to make gluten-free fried rice. It’s so delicious and a great way to make fried rice grain free. Here’s my favorite Gluten-Free Fried Rice recipe.

I’m confused. Do I pulse the cauliflower WITH all that water in the blender?
Tracey Black says
Yes, you need the water to evenly rice the cauliflower.
Do you drain the riced cauliflower before cooking it or leave all that water in it
Tracey Black says
Yes, you can drain it. When you cook it, there may be some water in the pan – that’s just from the cauliflower itself. You can drain that as well.
