Cauliflower rice is very easy to make and it is a great replacement for carbs heavy white or brown rice. There are many ways how to prepare cauliflower rice. I try to make it simple but taste differently each time. Today, I have added fresh thyme and splash of fresh lemon juice.


  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 1 large white onion
  • 50 g butter
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • fresh thyme
  • juice from fresh half a lemon


  1. Grate the cauliflower into a large microwave-safe bowl(use a food processor if you have one).
  2. Sprinkle with salt and microwave for 4 minutes on full power.
  3. Take it out and give it a good mix.
  4. Put back and microwave for another 3 minutes. Mix again.
  5. Give it another 2-3 minute and check if the cauliflower is cooked. If not microwave for another 2 minutes.
  6. Cut the onion into small pieces and fry in butter until golden in color. Add the fresh thyme leaves and lemon juice. Set aside for 5 minutes
  7. Add the fried onion with thyme and lemon juice to the cauliflower. Mix well.
  8. Serve hot as a side dish.



Don't be afraid to experiment with different fresh herbs or spices and make it taste different every time. I believe the whole family will love it.
