Roasted Cauliflower "Rice"


  • cooking spray
  • 2 heads cauliflower, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 ½ tablespoons avocado oil
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line 3 baking sheets with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.


  • Step 2

    Fill a food processor 1/4 of the way with cauliflower pieces. Pulse 8 to 12 times until cauliflower is the size of rice grains. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat with remaining cauliflower pieces.

  • Step 3

    Drizzle avocado oil over cauliflower “rice”; toss until well-distributed.

  • Step 4

    Spread 2 1/2 cups of the rice in an even layer on each lined baking sheet.

  • Step 5

    Roast rice until golden, about 16 minutes. Remove from oven, stir well, and spread out again. Return to oven and roast for 6 minutes. Remove from oven, stir well, and spread out again. Continue roasting until browned, about 5 minutes more.

  • Step 6

    Season each sheet of roasted rice with 1/4 teaspoon salt and place in a large container.

  • Cook's Note:

    You can absolutely do this with just 2/3 a raw cauliflower (that would be about 1 batch). I always make a lot of this and freeze some as it’s a big staple in my kitchen – super low-calorie, delicious, and healthy.
