Second Method (easier): Wash and remove leaves.

How much does this recipe make?

This recipe will make between 3 and 4 cups of riced cauliflower. It will all depend how big of a head of cauliflower you start out with.

During the summer months when we can get fresh local heads of cauliflower that are huge it can be even more than that! If I have too much I throw some into the freezer. It holds up better if you give it a quick blanch before freezing it.

This recipe comes together really quickly so I don’t usually worry too much about prepping it advance. It’s better and easier to use fresh anyway!
