Cauliflower Rice has been trendy for a few years now, and this Easy Cauliflower Rice with Garlic and Green Onion is the one I find myself making over and over. And my favorite cauliflower rice is low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo, vegan, and South Beach Diet friendly, so it's perfect for everyone!
Cauliflower rice has turned into one of those food fads that actually stick around, and a couple of different versions of it have already been posted on this blog. Both of those are delicious, but this recipe for The Best Easy Cauliflower Rice with Garlic and Green Onion is the one I find myself making over and over, and my thoughts about the ingredients and method of making it have changed over the last few years.
After I recently made it three times in a couple of weeks, I wondered if this recipe was too simple to be worth a new cauliflower rice post on the blog. Then I happened to be having dinner with a friend, and when I mentioned cauliflower rice she had never heard of it! So that convinced me that it was my duty to share this easy and amazing cauliflower rice recipe that I'm so mad about.
Of course, if you really want the easiest possible cauliflower rice using this recipe you can buy the bags of fresh riced cauliflower that's sold at Trader Joe's, Target, and a few other stores. But stores that sell the pre-riced fresh cauliflower seem to sell out of it early, and I've never managed to snag some yet!
But I don't find chopping the cauliflower in the food processor to be that labor intensive. And when I make my own I like to use 4 cups of riced cauliflower. However the bags contain 3 cups, so in the recipe I'll tell how to adjust the amounts of other ingredients if you're using a bag of riced cauliflower. (Some stores also sell frozen cauliflower rice, but I haven't used that. If anyone tries the frozen cauliflower for this recipe, please let us know how it works!)
