Tips for the cauliflower rice and kale recipe

This is a recipe that elevates basic sauteed veggies into something more substantial, almost a complete meal on its own if you’re vegan or vegetarian. We like having this cauliflower rice and kale with brown rice for a meal prep version. Add a serving of your protein of choice to make it a main meal.

How to rice cauliflower

How to rice cauliflower? You can literally just shave a head of cauliflower with a sharp knife, but a good box grater works better. If you have a food processor, just roughly cut the cauliflower into florets and pulse to obtain coarse grains. If you’re feeling lazy, just buy riced cauliflower in the fresh produce or frozen section of your grocery store. Riced cauliflower cooks up quickly and easily. The trick is to sauté the riced cauliflower in a hot skillet so the cauliflower cooks rapidly without steaming and becoming mushy.

What kale to use for this recipe?

Any type of kale will work (curly, Tuscan/lacinato kale…), just make sure to remove the stem, or you will end up with very tough bits in your cauliflower rice! Tuscan kale (also called Lacinato) is less tough and fibrous as the curlier kale, so we tend to like it better. Tuscan kale also cooks more quickly. You can briefly massage kale with you bare hands before chopping, it will be more tender when you throw it in the pan.
