Baked Cauliflower Rice

I have a new found love for cauliflower these days. It has definitely gone through stages though. Actually, growing up my mom allowed each of us kids to pick 1 vegetable that we never had to eat if she happened to fix it. Mine..cauliflower. I hated it that much. Not too smart of a pick for my one vegetable either considering my mom rarely cooked cauliflower for us so I almost never got to use my opt out option.

The first time I actually even tried cauliflower was when my husband, then boyfriend introduced me to fried cauliflower at a favorite local tavern. It was pretty awesome..I couldn’t believe it. ┬áDid I mention it was fried though? Lots of things are good fried ­čÖé

It took around another 7 years for me to try it…gasp…not fried. I had been eating mostly clean for awhile and had been oven baking carrots and broccoli. I decided to give cauliflower a try. I was pretty excited. The way I baked it made ┬áit a little crispy and crunchy. Could this be a new favorite vegetable? ┬áNeedless to say, I started making it weekly as part of my meal prep day.

I decided to branch out a bit more and try to make cauliflower rice. My first attempt was a flop in my opinion. I prepared it and then cooked it in the wok, not so good. Then I stumbled across someone who BAKED their cauliflower rice. What a great idea! ┬áMy favorite, easy way to cook vegetables. I was happy with the results on this one! ┬áNow, I just need to get a bigger food processor so it doesn’t take me like 20 rounds to chop the cauliflower.

Baked Cauliflower Rice

Ingredients

1.) cauliflower

2.) oil (extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil)

3.) sea salt

Directions

Cut the cauliflower into small pieces and pulse in the food processor. *helpful hint..just do a few quick pulses each time (don’t overdo it in the food processor or it will be really mushy). Put it on a baking sheet, drizzle on the oil and mix it up a bit. Then spread the cauliflower out and sprinkle on some sea salt.

Bake 400-425 degrees for approximately 25 minutes, then turn oven to broil and bake for about 3-5 minutes (this is key I think..watch to make sure you don’t burn it, but this makes it crispier which I like!)

  1. When you prep this cauliflower rice in advance, how do you reheat it for individual meals? Thanks, I am super excited to add this is to my 21 Day Fix options!

    • Hi! I usually reheat it just in the microwave. BUT…I do always make sure that when I’m meal prepping and baking cauliflower rice that I time it so that I’m actually eating a meal with it that first time right when it’s finished. Nothing beats straight out of the oven! Makes me wonder if a toaster oven would be good for reheating? I don’t have one, and the microwave is fine…but it’s just a little crispier from the oven ­čśŐ. Enjoy!! It’s a great 21 Day Fix addition!
