– Don’t mind me, I am just
enjoying one of my favorite ways to enjoy rice without the carbs. Keep watching and I’ll show you how. (fun music) So you’ve probably already
heard about cauliflower rice. It’s a yummy way to
enjoy traditional meals if you’re on a low carb, grain free, keto or paleo lifestyle. If you haven’t heard of cauliflower rice or are unsure of how to
cook it, stick around because we’re about of
find out the best ways to cook this miracle veggie. First things first, we
need the cauliflower rice. I’m using a cauliflower that I’ve turned into rice like granules. It’s not real rice. This is rice and this
is a head of cauliflower that I’ve turned into rice. Basic I know but I thought that
I’d get that out of the way because clearly these
methods are not going to work with traditional rice. You can make your own cauliflower
rice a few different ways and I have a video that shows
you precisely how to do that. I’ll make sure to link
it right below this video and an info card as well. Of course you can use the
pre-made bagged cauliflower rice. That’s totally fine. You can find that in many
grocery refrigerated cases and even in the freezer aisle. Okay, on to cooking this. So there are two ways to
cook cauliflower rice, to steam it or saute it. Whichever method you use, cooking it makes this
veggie taste even more like the regular rice and
it will take on any flavor that you put into it. Incredible, I know. So let’s first steam it. You can place the cauliflower
rice in a microwave safe bowl. You’re gonna cover it with plastic wrap or a damp paper towel and microwave it for about
three minutes until tender. Of course if you put more than four cups, it might need a little longer. This method works best if
you plan to serve the rice immediately after you’re
cooking your meal. Say you’re grilling chicken or you just take out a sheet
pan dinner from the oven and you need to cook your
cauliflower rice fast before the meal gets cold. The other option and personally
my favorite is to saute it. It adds a nutty flavor and
creates the closest texture and flavor to regular rice. To do this, I’m gonna
heat one tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. I’m gonna add in the cauliflower rice, give it a stir, cover it
and reduce the heat to low. You’re gonna remove
the lid, give it a stir and let the moisture evaporate. This is just plain but it gets better. You can also add it to
your stir fries like I do in my cauliflower fried rice recipe which of course I’m going to
link for you in an info card and right below this video. This cauliflower rice is cooked
and it’s going to be epic. Okay, okay, we can’t
finish this video just yet. You guys know how much I love tacos. So I have to share with
