Making Cauliflower Rice or any form of riced veggies is clearly a favorite of mine. You know this if you have been following me for awhile. Why? Because I love carbs. Carbs will always be my first love. Well, maybe a runner-up to nut butter! 😀

But carbs are not friendly to my waistline. At least not in the excess that I love having them in. So that is where things like ‘zoodles’ and cauliflower ‘rice’ come in handy.

So how do you make that delectable cauliflower/broccoli rice you see? EASY!

The easiest way that I know how to make cauliflower rice is to cut the head into small florets and toss it into my food processor. My favorite product to do so with is by Hamilton Beach. I have been using their processors for the last 8 years. The only reason that I am on my second is because I dropped the bowl of the last one from a pretty high point on to my kitchen floor. Eeeek!

The product withstands a lot of use, though, and is on the affordable side for appliances.

  • 1/4 cup yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced

  • scallions chopped

Instructions

  1. Cut the caulilfower and broccoli into small florets, add to food processor and pulse until they have both reached a rice-like consistency.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-heat with 1 tablespoon of sesame oil.
  3. Once heated, add the onions and garlic. Saute until tender - approximately 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add chopped bell pepper. Allow to cook 3-4 minutes.
  5. Once the vegetables have softened a bit, push them to the side. If need be, add a teensy bit more sesame oil to the bare side of the skillet to warm.
  6. Add the eggs and stir to break the yolk. Allow to cook through.
  7. Add the peas, carrots, and edamame to the skillet once the eggs have cooked and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Add the last tablespoon of sesame oil to the pan, stir well, and mix in the cauliflower/broccoli "rice".
  9. Stir the mixture well to fully incorporate the oil and allow to pan fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  10. Add the soy sauce, pepper, and if you prefer - additional salt.
  11. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

*Adding additional salt is completely optional. Everyones palate for salt level is different, so add to your preference if the l0w-sodium soy sauce is not as salty as you would like. If you use regular soy sauce - reduce the amount of soy sauce used, adding first 2 tablespoons to the pan and then any additional per your taste preference.
