Who hasn’t tried cauliflower rice yet? Well, it’s easier to make now that you can buy the crumbles ready to go, so let’s give it a try!
Have you tried to make cauliflower rice? While you can make it yourself with a box grater or food processor, I just don’t always have the time for that.
What I do have time for though is the new cauliflower rice (sometimes labeled as cauliflower crumbles) already broken into tiny pieces that you can buy in the produce section of the grocery store. All you need to do is open the bag, quickly cook it, and eat.
What is Cauliflower Rice?
In case you don’t know what it is, cauliflower rice is simply cauliflower that has been broken into rice-sized pieces. People use it as a healthy rice substitute in stir fries and stuffed peppers – anywhere you would normally put rice, like in this Cauliflower Rice Bowl. It’s amazing how good it is in there.
OK, so, you got yourself a bag of cauliflower crumbles and you know you’re going to use them in a stir fry or rice bowl or whatever. But how do you cook them? It’s super-easy. Here’s how you do it.
How to Cook Cauliflower Rice
Heat some olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. 1 tablespoon of oil for 4 cups (12 ounces) of crumbles is just right.
Add the cauliflower crumbles and stir.
Reduce heat to low. Cover the skillet. If your skillet doesn’t have a cover (mine doesn’t), then use a big piece of aluminum foil.
Cook for 5 minutes. Remove lid and test if cauliflower is soft. If so, you’re done. If not, stir, recover and cook a couple more minutes.
Now you have cauliflower rice that is ready to be substituted into your favorite rice dishes.
