Cauliflower rice is a staple for the Paleo and the Low Carb diet but if you don’t have a food processor then you’re stuck buying expensive supermarket riced cauliflower.   However there is a trick to making with with a blender! Now you can whip up Cauliflower rice for a fraction of a cost.

Some health benefits from eating more Cauliflower:

    Oh gosh! That is too easy! And actually way easier to clean than the food processor! I saw riced cauli in the freezer section the other day and almost choked at the price! Ha! It’s nice and convenient but this is so easy and way easier on the budget if you are eating it all the time!

    So smart to use a blender! I’ve been extra lazy recently and have been buying them pre-riced, haha.

    Oh wow! I was wondering how you wouldn’t just puree it but now it makes sense after watching the video. Pretty genius!

    Wish I had this post around when I didn’t have a food processor!

    This is undeniably easy. Like everyone else, I’m always blown away by the price of a TINY bag of cauli rice, so this is a great option to recommend for folks who don’t have a food processor.

    I made it like this today and it was brilliant! Way cheaper and fresher than buying from the store!

    Riced cauliflower is so awesome! I just had some tonight. I love how easy your process is for making it!

    Fantastic video and so informative! It’s actually a lot easier and a lot less messy than I thought it would be to be honest! Sometimes I find that my food processor is too powerful and makes it more into cous cous than rice ha!

    I love this idea! I personally use a cheese grater which does the trick for me. So much cheaper than the ‘buy in a bag’ versions too. Thanks for another great post!
