Here's How To Make A Healthy, Low-Carb Version Of Rice

When it comes to low-carb substitutes, cauliflower rice seems to be all the rage these days.

Cauliflower's unassuming flavor and color make it a chameleon that can take on the looks and flavors you want it to.

And once pulsed in a food processor, the cruciferous vegetable can sneakily resemble white rice grains. Though not a perfect substitute, it's similar to rice in that it's a blank canvas begging to be added onto.

Plus, turning your cauliflower into "rice" is pretty simple.

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees and cutting a whole head of cauliflower in half.

Cut out the core, and then break up any bigger florets so they are all roughly the same size.

In batches, use a food processor and pulse until the florets have broken down into rice-sized pieces.

If you don't have a food processor on hand, a box grater can also be used to rice the cauliflower.

Then simply spread the riced cauliflower onto a sheet pan and roast for about 15 minutes, tossing once halfway through to ensure even roasting.

Once it's done, dress it however you please and you're good to go.
