Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower is a typical staple of the keto diet, as it contains only a small per cent of carbs and is neutral in flavour, making it extremely versatile. This cauliflower rice dish is a great accompaniment to fish dishes, stews and meat dishes, easily replacing rice, couscous and pasta!
Cauliflower rice is a versatile side dish that really doesn't require any extra flavours beyond basic seasoning. But if you feel like spicing things up a bit, try experimenting with paprika, coriander or toasted cumin seeds!

  • ½ medium cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • salt and pepper to season


  • Using a grater or a food processor, grate the cauliflower into a mixing bowl. Season the grated cauliflower with salt and pepper and the optional spices and herbs of your choice.
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan (skillet) at a medium heat and add the cauliflower rice. Cook the cauliflower rice for about 6 minutes until softened, but not overcooked.

Alternative methods:

  • Alternatively, you can cook your cauliflower rice in the microwave. Place in a microwavable bowl and cover with cling film. Pierce the cling film and microwave for 7 minutes. With this method, add the seasoning after cooking.
  • Simply roast at 180°C (350°F) in a fan oven for approximately 20 minutes.
