Super easy homemade cauliflower rice – a great grain-free alternative to traditional rice or quinoa.


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 23 tablespoons of coconut aminos
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of himalayan salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp of onion powder and garlic powder (optional for flavor)

You can keep the cauliflower rice as simple as you’d like – or you can get creative and try different flavor combinations!


  1. Cut cauliflower head into florets and shred using food processor with shredder blade*.
  2. Heat a non stick pan over medium heat with a tiny bit of oil or vegetable broth. Add shredded cauliflower and the rest of the ingredients. Mix to combine. Cook until cauliflower is soft and tender (usually takes 15 minutes).
  3. Serve with your favorite meal.


  • For meal prepping: You can shred cauliflower ahead of time and store in an airtight container and store in fridge (or freezer if not using within the next 2-3 days).
  • This is my go-to cauliflower rice flavor combination but feel free to experiment with your favorite spices and herbs.
  • If you do not have a shredder blade – you can use the regular food processor ‘s’ blades but make sure not to over-process the cauliflower and accidentally turn it into a soft mush!
