If you aren't buying pre-riced cauliflower: To rice the cauliflower, chop off the base of the crown and remove any large stems. Using your hands or a knife, tear the crown into large florets. From here you can either place them in a food processor and pulse a few times until broken down or you can use a grater. I prefer the food processor method.
Extra Calories – Add 1 cup of cooked quinoa to your serving.
