Lemon and Herb Flavoured Cauliflower Rice

Lemon and Herb Flavoured Cauliflower Rice

Use up the whole of your cauliflower – stalks and all – by making this lemon and herb cauliflower rice.

  • Total Time: 5min


  • 1 whole cauliflower
  • 1 lemon
  • Handful soft herbs, e.g. mint, parsley, basil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Grate, finely chop, or place cauliflower florets, stalks, ribs and leaves in a food processor, until it resembles a texture similar to chunky breadcrumbs.
  2. Place in a large microwavable bowl with a splash of water and cook for about 5 minutes, the steam produced as it microwaves will cook it. Stir and check if it is cooked; if needed microwave for longer.
  3. Zest and juice the lemon, and chop the herbs. Add to the cauliflower rice and mix well, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add extra vegetables and serve as a summer salad  or use with any dish as an alternative to rice.


  1. If you want to switch up the flavour, add your favourite spices instead to make a spiced cauliflower rice.
  2. Blitzed cauliflower can also be used to make tabbouleh or pizza bases.
