Love how this can be an extremely quick way in getting dinner on the table, yet the flavour doesn’t give anything away! Thanks for sharing Sommer! I have a question though: does the cauliflower have to be very fresh? I do hope this can be a smart, yummy way to use up cauliflower that might be on its way out soon.
- 1 large (2 small) head of cauliflower
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Cut the cauliflower in half and remove the core and leaves. Roughly chop the cauliflower and place in the food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is small and fine like rice.
- Dump the cauliflower rice out onto a large rimmed baking sheet (If your baking sheet is average sized or small, use two.) Drizzle the olive oil over the top. Then mix with your hands and spread the cauliflower rice out into a thin layer. Sprinkle with salt.
- Roast in the oven for 5 minutes. Then stir and smooth out again. Roast, another 5 minutes. Serve warm.
I love making cauli rice in the microwave but have never roasted…looks delicious! Sounds like a great way to decrease amount of water in the final “rice”. Thank you so much Sommer!
