Cauliflower Sushi Rice


This makes a lot of "rice," maybe 5 cups or so - depending on the size of the cauliflower you use.

Cauliflower Sushi Rice


2 heads cauliflower - stalks & leaves discarded

3 egg whites

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt


Heat the rice vinegar in a small pan.  Dissolve the sugar & salt in it & set aside.

Using a cheese grater or the grating blade in your food processor (FAR less messy) - grate the cauliflower.  It will immediately look like rice.

I added the egg whites & rice vinegar mix & put the cauliflower in the microwave for five minutes.  I took it out - stirred it around & zapped it again in five minute increments until I felt the cauliflower was soften & cooked through.  Microwaves vary wildly in their effectiveness.  Mine is 20 years old.  This process might take you far fewer zapping episodes.

Many versions I saw of this added no rice vinegar/salt/sugar & instead - sauteed the cauliflower in coconut oil.  I might try that next.  I might saute AND add the vinegar mix.  You should experiment, too!

Once you feel you have a cooked rice texture - chill it in the fridge.  

And there you have it.  Cauliflower rice!
